Article Summary: 

Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) is an approach used in condominiums to reduce crime opportunities, enhance resident safety, and promote a sense of community. The article explains the principles of CPTED, including physical maintenance, territorial reinforcement, and natural surveillance, which focus on creating a secure environment within the property. It then introduces second-generation CPTED concepts centered around social interaction, such as social cohesion, connectivity, community culture, and threshold capacity. These concepts aim to foster positive relationships between residents, empower the community, and encourage residents to take pride in their ownership and protect the common elements. The article highlights the importance of incorporating CPTED principles into capital projects and community culture to create a safer and more harmonious living environment for condominium residents.
