The built environment has a tremendous impact on public safety. The authors SafeScape principles challenge planners and citizens alike to create vibrant, integrated, self-policing, and sustainable communities. The co-authors examine aspects of the urban environment that influence crime and the fear of crime and recommend strategies for building-or rebuilding-communities where residents feel safe and are safe. SafeScape communities empower citizens and offer many and varied opportunities for positive action. Their inherently safer design makes them easier and less costly to keep safe. The authors focus on planning and design solutions that minimize opportunities for criminal and victim to come together. Throughout, they stress that these efforts will succeed only if they engage citizens, embrace diversity, and enhance a sense of community. Personal observations, case studies, and hundreds of photographs from communities across America make this book an interesting, practical, and inspiring guide to safer, livelier, and more inviting communities. This is compelling reading for planners, designers, public safety professionals, and elected officials.
