The presentation will introduce and explore the design considerations for developing sites that are safe, secure, and deter crime and other unlawful behavior. Through the use of developed projects and their related security standards, we will delineate ways to approach the planning, design, and documentation of safe, secure, sites. The conversation will utilize a broad spectrum of standards and design considerations to demonstrate thoughtful design solutions to common safety issues. Additionally, we will delve into more secure site design issues for federal and civic institutions.
