FRIENDS OF SAFEGROWTH®
Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC)
The partnership between SafeGrowth® and LISC's Community Safety Initiative has allowed for the design of a comprehensive program model for professionals in community development, urban planning and design, law enforcement and crime prevention. It draws on the best-practices of six years of MetLife Foundation Award winners to inform future planning for comprehensive community safety programs.
This paper describes 1st and 2nd Generation CPTED principles and outlines how the principles should be considered as part of a 6-phase planning and problem-solving process to improve public safety.

International CPTED Association (ICA)
The International CPTED Association (ICA) supports local organizations, practitioners and communities that utilize CPTED principles to create safer communities and environments.
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) (pronounced sep-ted) is defined as a multi-disciplinary approach to deterring criminal behavior through environmental design. CPTED strategies rely upon the ability to influence offender decisions that precede criminal acts by affecting the built, social and administrative environment. The physical aspects of CPTED are by some jurisdictions around the world also referred to as Designing Out Crime or Safer by Design.

AARP California Office
The California office of AARP recently joined the SafeGrowth® movement by hosting the first 2016 SafeGrowth Summit and Search Conference. Delegates from across the state, and from other states, spent 3 days developing visions for implementing SafeGrowth in their communities.
As the AARP website describes: “AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, social welfare organization with a membership of nearly 38 million that helps people turn their goals and dreams into real possibilities, strengthens communities and fights for the issues that matter most to families — such as health care, employment and income security, and protection from financial abuse.”
