About this Event

When you look at things differently, the things you look at change. Learn how the power of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) and Community Engagement coupled with a Crime Stoppers partnership has helped prevent crime, while also enhancing community safety overall.

This unique and interesting has been the focus of a Harvard University Business School case study.

Please Join us as Sean Sportun provides an insightful presentation with the student of our local colleges and ASIS Members.
