    Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a multi-disciplinary approach to crime prevention that uses urban and architectural design and the management of built and natural environments.

    CPTED strategies aim to reduce victimization, deter offender decisions that precede criminal acts, and build a sense of community among inhabitants so they can gain territorial control of areas, reduce crime, and minimize fear of crime.

    CPTED is pronounced ‘sep-ted’ and it is also known around the world as Designing Out Crime, defensible space, and other similar terms.


    Parkland County Enforcement Services provides CPTED property assessments at no cost to the property owner. Call our complaint line and request your own assessment at 780-968-8400.

    In the spring of 2023 Parkland County Enforcement Services received a number of complaints regarding suspicious and/or potential scams related to paving services and contracts.

    We are reminding residents to exercise diligence and caution when retaining contractor services. Keep the following tips in mind to avoid falling victim to a scam:

    • Ask for names of previous customers and verify that they were satisfied with the work.
    • Research the company through the Better Business Bureau in Alberta, the Consumer Investigations Unit, your local Rural Crime Watch, or on social media.
    • Obtain a written quote that includes the full business name, address, phone number, GST number, as well as provincial and municipal license numbers, if applicable.
    • Quotes should specify the quantity and quality of materials being offered. Be skeptical if contractors decline to provide this information.
    • Seek estimates from reputable companies to compare costs.
    • Do not agree to a contract if you feel pressured or if the contractor refuses to take "no" for an answer.
    • Be leery of unsolicited offers. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

    The Alberta RCMP is working together with the Alberta Consumer Investigation Unit (CIU) to counter this trend. For more information, see the Service Alberta's Dealing with Door-to-Door Sales tip sheet. If you, or anyone you know, suspect a paving-contractor scam, please report it to your local RCMP detachment:
