CPTED: Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design Tips
--CPTED is defined as “the proper design and effective use of the built environment that can lead to a reduction in fear and incidence of crime and an improvement in quality of life”. It incorporates principles from planning, architecture, landscape architecture, law enforcement and engineers. It emphasizes the physical environment, behavior of people, productive use of space and crime/loss prevention.
--Target Hardening is one of the most obvious and prevalent means to prevent crime, by making the target physically difficult to penetrate. Examples include locks, reinforced walls, bars and shrubs.
--Landscaping defines territory, controls access and creates ownership. When deciding on landscaping, you should check the plant species, size, dimension and opacity. Landscaping must be maintained and should not obstruct the area’s natural surveillance.
--Fencing and Walls add security, delineate property, offer privacy and create barriers; but also should allow transparency for surveillance, be unobtrusive and create a sense of community.
--Lighting for Safety Lighting helps people observe their surroundings and respond to a potential threat. Poor lighting, whether too bright or too dim, can diminish safety. The quality of lighting is as important as the amount of lighting. Proper lighting deters, discourages and prevents crime, disables the criminal element and allows for the detection of those seeking to be concealed. Exterior lighting should have an unbreakable exterior, tamper proof hardware and be properly maintained.

Register Your Surveillance Cameras with the NOPD
SafeCam NOLA is a NOPD initiative to enlist the help of community members in the fight against crime. Citizen-provided security camera footage is increasingly becoming an invaluable asset to NOPD, helping establish leads and identify perpetrators. By voluntarily registering your contact information with NOPD, detectives will know how to reach you if a crime occurs in the vicinity of your property.
Registering your information does not provide NOPD with direct access to your camera. NOPD will only contact you if they believe your camera could contain evidence relevant to a criminal investigation. Evidence provided by your camera could mean the difference between bringing a perpetrator to justice versus leaving a crime unsolved.
--To register your surveillance camera(s), visit: http://safecamnola.com/.

Registering your bicycle is simple and easy. A money order in the amount of $3.00 is required, to cover the cost of printing the license decals.

We now offer the following options for you to register your bicycle with the NOPD:
