Being able to spot what is safe and unsafe takes practice. And experience is invaluable. We’re going to post a new picture each Wednesday and after everyone has had a chance to comment, we’ll post what we see.
This picture was taken during morning arrival. How does it look? What can we tell about their policy and procedures, control, leadership, as well as current safety measures for the students and teachers. What, if anything, would make it safer?
There is a lot happening here!
As always, assess how well this school is using the three strategies of CPTED (‘septed’) or Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design:
1. Surveillance: The ability to clearly see a potential threat
2. Access Control: The ability to deny and delay access of unwanted persons into the school and/or school grounds
3. Ownership: Sending a clear message that the space belongs to the school
So what do you see?
