Abstract

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is an approach aimed to reduce or eliminate crime opportunities by using elements of the environment namely natural surveillance, access control, territoriality and maintenance. In Malaysia, preventing crime through environmental design was introduced as one of the initiatives in the Safe City Program in 2004, thus, CPTED in Malaysia is still in its infancy. This paper examines the crime scenario in Malaysian neighbourhood particularly on crimes in residential property. It looks at CPTED principles and reviews its potentiality in the planning of Malaysian residential neighbourhood.
