This presentation will highlight the principles of CPTED and the evolving philosophy of Safe Growth.  These concepts have evolved from a time when we all relied solely on a police service to address crime.

We all have a responsibility to prevent crime and we can do it using these principles.  CPTED is about reducing the opportunity for crime to occur, increasing people’s feelings of safety, and an overall increase in quality of life in the community.

Safe Growth employs these principles and a philosophy of community involvement to attain the safest community possible in which to live, work, and play.  Interdisciplinary, or some use transdisciplinary, teams are critical to the safer design and management of our neighbourhoods and cities.


The City of Saskatoon has formalize Safe Growth/CPTED in the Development Plan and establish an Administrative policy for ensuring the work is carried out in a rational manner.  As of September 2008, all civic structures, facilities, and developments are subject to a CPTED review.  City of Saskatoon has also developed a set of Safe Growth guidelines, for specific types of development, to ensure crime prevention is included in all development.

This interactive presentation will look at the opportunities and challenges to the implementation of the concept of Safe Growth and the principles and processes of CPTED.
