April 21, 2017 – Santa Fe College hosted the Florida Design Out Crime Association (fldoca.com) April 21 and presented a nationwide webinar on CPTED.
FLDOCA is a group of crime prevention experts in Florida that are trained in crime prevention through environmental design (aka CPTED). CPTED is a way to make the built environment safer with strategies such as good lighting, well maintained landscaping, signage, natural surveillance via good windows and sightlines, and well-marked roadways, sidewalks, crosswalks, and boundaries.
While hosting, Santa Fe College also broadcast a webinar on CPTED concepts to approximately 200 higher education professionals nationwide. The presentation featured many pictures of Santa Fe College and highlighted the work of SF facilities, and in particular, grounds crews.
City of Aventura Crime Prevention Coordinator Ernie Long and SF College PD Chief Ed Book were the primary presenters. The SF College Police Department has 3 practitioners in this field including Officers Tony Manibusan and Mike Fannin, and Chief Book. They have each provided training to facilities staff in the past.
