Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a comprehensive approach to assist commercial and residential property owners in developing strategies to help deter criminal behavior. The Crystal Lake Police Department is pleased to provide CPTED information to the citizens we serve in a joint effort to make a safe community even safer. Specific information regarding CPTED can be found here: CPTED Pamphlet.
We have officers on staff trained in CPTED should any Crystal Lake resident or business owner have any questions regarding the program. Please contact Community Resource Officer Ed Pluviose by phone at 815-356-3731 or via email should you have any questions.
