Presentation Title: Protecting Public Buildings, Plazas, and Pedestrians against Vehicle Ramming Attacks with CPTED

Today’s threats are evolving quickly and we must design the built environment to be able to dissuade and deter attacks on the property, pedestrians, and open plazas. This session addresses how CPTED, crime prevention through environmental design, can use boundary definition and territoriality to deflect vehicle ramming attacks that are becoming more frequent as a means of causing terror and damage. There will be discussion and demonstrations on the proper design specification and application of bollards, barriers, and level changes to protect out building assets from these kinds of attacks.
