The Chattanooga Police Department is sponsoring free crime prevention training primarily designed for business owners and managers who are interested in making their facility and employees as safe as possible.
A nationally accredited Crime Prevention Specialist from the University of Tennessee’s Law Enforcement Innovation Center will cover the following topics during the 4-hour training session: lighting, access control, video surveillance, emergency management, glazing, environmental design and more.
The instruction will incorporate Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles, security and vulnerability assessments.
“By empowering our business community with the tools and knowledge to better protect their places of business, employees and themselves, we are making our city a safer place for our community members and visitors to shop, visit and play” said Chief of Police David Roddy.
Chattanoogans who are interested in learning more about CPTED principles and how to put them to use can choose from one of four sessions. Registration must be done in advance at this link: http://bit.ly/CPDLEIC
