Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
CPTED is the proper design and effective use of the built environment which may lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime, and an improvement of the quality of life. We offer plan reviews for new construction or revitalization.
We have the ability to increase the patrol level in neighborhoods or areas suffering from an increase in crime or for a specific event without impacting patrol levels in other neighborhoods.
We participate in community events by handing out educational pamphlets, DVDs and other items of interest geared towards community members of all ages.
Is your business safe? We can conduct site surveys and provide crime prevention tips, point out potential problem areas and offer solutions based on experience and training.
Sub-Standard Property Abatement
Many times poorly maintained properties attract undesirable consequences such as graffiti, illegal dumping and other crime. We work with other county agencies to clean up nuisance properties as quickly as possible. If you have such a property in your neighborhood, drop us a line. For more information visit Napa County Code Section 1.20.022.
