1 Home Security Inspection This document sets forth conclusions and recommendations following a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design inspection performed by the Thunderbolt Police Department. The purpose of this inspection is to evaluate the physical attributes of your property that can be utilized or altered to reduce the opportunity for criminals to victimize your residence and reduce ability for crimes to occur by making a good faith effort to create a safer environment. The suggestions set forth below are made for the purpose of reducing the likelihood of criminal activity. Responsibility for undertaking any of the recommendations made below is entirely yours, but we highly recommend you follow through and complete the suggested improvements to increase the safety of this property. The Thunderbolt Police Department makes no guarantee that these recommendations will successfully reduce criminal activity and assumes no additional responsibility for the prevention of criminal activity by making these recommendations. The concepts of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design have proven effective internationally. The Thunderbolt Police Department offers the inspection as a public service with the understanding that no system of crime prevention can predict or prevent all risk of crime, but that this program may contribute to the overall goal of crime reduction. By signing this document on the line provided below, you acknowledge and agree that neither the Thunderbolt Police Department, the officer conducting the inspection, nor any employee of the Thunderbolt Police Department or the Town of Thunderbolt are or shall held liable to you based on the inspection of this property and/or the recommendations set forth below, and that you agree to indemnify, defend and hold those parties harmless should any other person or entity seek to hold them liable based on the inspection of this property and the recommendations set forth below.

2 The four key concepts of CPTED are: 1. Access Control 2. Surveillance 3. Territorial Reinforcement 4. Lighting Page 2 of 13

3 Access Control: Properly located entrances, exits, fencing, landscaping and lighting can direct both foot and motor vehicle traffic in ways that discourage crime. Page 3 of 13

4 Surveillance: The three types of surveillance are: 1. Natural, 2.Organized 3.Mechanical Generally, criminals do not want to be seen. Placing physical features, activities and people in ways that minimize the ability to see what is going on discourages crime. Landscaping and lighting are two methods used to provide natural surveillance. Page 4 of 13

5 Territorial Reinforcement: The use of physical attributes that express ownership such as fencing, pavement treatments, signage, and landscaping. The purpose is that the users feel a strong sense of ownership. Page 5 of 13

6 Lighting: The single most requested physical design modification is lighting. The placement, consistency, type and design of lighting can be one of the most cost effective deterrents to crime. Page 6 of 13
