Crime Prevention

The Oro Valley Police Department coordinates the following crime prevention programs:

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
A series of design strategies to beautify a proposed development considering safety concerns.

Trained officers utilize a concept known as CPTED to examine new building projects as they are presented to the Development Review Committee.  Officers provide recommendations about how builders can plan projects to deter or prevent crime before it becomes an issue.

For further information please contact Sgt. Amy Graham at (520) 229-5081.
