Designing Out Crime

The term ‘Designing Out Crime’ has been a discipline within the UK Police Service for over 30 years and the principles behind it have been proven successful time and time again. Delegates attending this course should have a background/current role in Crime Prevention, Architecture or Planning.

During the first classroom-based week of this qualification, delegates will hear from practitioners and learn how to read plans and drawings for new developments.
