Safety Audits

Safety Audits are completed using SafeGrowth ideologies.  The audits are a tool to evaluate how safe an area feels and provides recommendations to improve safety. Businesses, neighbourhood associations and not for profit organizations can all request an assessment. Safety Audits are an inclusive, collaborative, and interdisciplinary wrought iron fenceapproach to:

  • Reduce opportunities for crime
  • Improve perceptions of safety
  • Strengthen community bonds

SafeGrowth are the strands that bind neighbourhood participation, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) and community development.

Applying the SafeGrowth Principles (PDF, 72KB) to site enhancements will assist in making their areas feel safer and more connected.

SafeGrowth is applied through several key and overlapping strategies; natural surveillance, territorial reinforcement, access  control, image, conflicting user groups, activity support, crime generators, land use mix, movement predictors, displacement, cohesion, connectivity, capacity and culture.
