Environmental security design is accomplished by first utilizing the physical features of a facility, natural barriers that exist in and outside plus the normal behavior of the everyday users before considering the use of the customary lock and alarm safeguards.
The goal of environmental security design is to support the goals of the U.S. Green Building Council and create a security plan that is less costly, transparent, sustainable and environmentally compatible and provides a more pleasant, productive environment. Security strategies adapted to a Green Security Solutions project include “Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design” and “Broken Windows.”
