WEBINAR - CPTED: Stop Talking About It and Live It!

Date:  March 8, 2017

Time:  14:00 - 15:30

About the Webinar:

This webinar is the first in a series on Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED). Since the critical elements and features of environments vary, sometimes dramatically, this series will explore the key principles of CPTED and its successful implementation in different settings.

This program outlines the fundamental principles underlying CPTED with a focus on how to implement them. Understanding these principles and actually applying them are two very different propositions. Often the execution of the implementation falls short, leaving the facility even more vulnerable than if CPTED hadn’t been considered at all.

Presenters will briefly discuss CPTED principles by highlighting specific design cases, then dive deep into real world examples enhanced through photographic documentation. Each case will demonstrate where and how the principles were applied from two points of view (security professional vs. architect). Floor plans, design phases, planned versus actual cost, building codes, and the maintenance of CPTED elements will be investigated.

Learning Objectives:

Implement CPTED principles throughout the security design process

Apply real world CPTED examples as depicted in actual case studies

Identify common CPTED pitfalls related to building codes

Consider the points of view of both the architect and the security professional

Reduce cost while increasing security in almost any type of environment


Toby Heath, CPP, PSP, CPTED, CHS-IV has nearly 15 years of experience in the security industry ranging from his real-world missions with the United States Army to designing all levels of security systems as a security engineer. His current role of Electromechanical Specialist (ASSA ABLOY) puts him up front and center with his customers in mitigating security risks. His previous role as security division leader allowed him to oversee a team that capable of performing a multitude of security functions. These included vulnerability/risk assessments, security system design (access control, CCTV, intrusion detection, etc.) as well as construction management/inspection of security installs.

He has more than 10 years of training, education and experience in the field of electronics and electrical design. Mike is the lead of C & S Engineers security practice and has managed and worked on several successful design and assessment projects. His main responsibilities include conducting RVT assessments at numerous facility types, security design and specifications, and managing the projects through to completion not only during design, but also in construction. Mike is currently chapter chair of the local ASIS Syracuse New York Chapter and is a ASIS board certified Physical Security Professional.

Michael LaMontagne, RA, LEED AP leads the architecture practice within the C & S Engineers industrial and airport facilities department and provides project management, design, and construction administration throughout C & S. He has more than 15 years of professional experience and has worked on a variety of project types, including airport facilities, laboratories, municipal buildings, higher education and K-12 schools, vehicle maintenance, religious, and industrial projects. As a project manager, Mike’s focus is on helping clients realize their goals while balancing aesthetics, sustainability, functionality, and cost effectiveness. His goal is to not only make a difference in the physically-built environment, but also in the community through engagement and serving others.
