This Technical Report gives guidelines on methods for assessing the risk of crime and/ or fear of crime and measures, procedures and processes aimed at reducing these risks.
Design guidelines are given for specific types of environments to prevent or counteract different crime problems consistently with the urban planning documents (see 4.3). Furthermore, guidelines for a step by step process are presented to involve all stakeholders (see 4.4) engaged in urban planning and environmental crime reduction as well as all other stakeholders mainly local and regional authorities and residents in the multi-agency action needed to minimise the risks of crime and fear of crime.
This Technical Report is applicable to the planning process of new, as well as existing, urban areas. An area can be the neighbourhood or environment ranging from just a few houses or streets to the whole city with a focus on public spaces.

This Technical Specification gives guidelines on methods for assessing and mitigating the risk of crime and/ or fear of crime/feelings of insecurity and measures, procedures and processes aimed at reducing these risks. Nowadays crime also includes terrorism (e.g. ram raiding attacks on soft targets in public places) and other new types of crimes (or modus operandi). Also new assessment methods are available (Intelligence-led Approaches, Predictive Policing) and last but not least new approaches to design are
available (Design Thinking, Systems Engineering Approaches, etc.).
Using social science methods and innovation tools from the design and planning world this Technical Specification will be based on innovating practical, evidence-based tools that meet end-user needs of designers, planners, maintenance people but also police, law enforcement and the security industry in their operational contexts.
Design guidelines are given for specific types of environments to prevent or counteract different crime problems consistently with the building design, urban planning and city maintenance documents. Furthermore, guidelines for a step by step process are presented to involve all stakeholders engaged in urban planning and environmental crime reduction as well as all other stakeholders mainly local and regional authorities and residents in the multi-agency action needed to minimize the risks of crime
and fear of crime. Reference will be made to the quickly changing and worldwide spreading approach of Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED).
This Technical Specification provides principles and processes for building design, urban planning and city maintenance. This guidance can be applied for buildings, for a neighborhood or environment ranging from just a few houses or streets to the whole city with a focus on public spaces.
