Crime Rates
This Website

Safety and security are essential to successful, sustainable communities. Not only are such places well-designed, attractive environments to live and work in, but they are also places where freedom from crime, and from the fear of crime, improves the quality of life. Yet, for far too long, too little attention has been paid by planners and designers to crime issues. As a result, there are far too many examples of poor quality development that has resulted in a costly and long-lasting heritage of the wrong kind. By highlighting the need to consider crime prevention as part of the design process this guide aims to deliver safer places.
