Learn to Design Out Fraud by applying Classic CPTED Principles!

In this course the student will learn about the application of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles to prevent, reduce, deter, and defeat asset misappropriation schemes. Loss Prevention and Fraud depend on theft and concealment of that theft and as such this course has pertinent and immediate application for Loss Prevention/Asset Protection professionals, security personnel, and fraud prevention professionals.

The Bottom Line: Violent crime is decreasing yet economic crime is on the rise globally. Estimates place losses from Organized Retail Crime and asset misappropriation schemes at $30 billion USD annually. Theft and fraud depend on concealment of the act and are categorized under three distinct areas of fraud in Corruption, Financial Statement Fraud, and Asset Misappropriation schemes. The application of CPTED to asset misappropriation and theft, especially in a retail environment, is pertinent in today's global marketplace.

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles are well developed in criminological theory and tested in practice over the last 40 years. They have been proven effective at reducing, deterring, and defeating crime.
