Specialist consultation to "Design Out Crime" for your development

How can you save money and boost your reputation at the same time?

The Design Out Crime Consultancy is based within Hampshire Constabulary and supported by the Police and Crime Commissioner and is a team that is passionate about reducing crime through design.

Being acutely aware of which crimes are prevalent in the area of your development is an important step in knowing what security and design aspects you will need. There are many ways in which your building can be made less appealing to criminals, simply in the way it is designed and this is where we can help.

We can offer you a unique pre-planning service: a detailed report written by Crime Prevention Design Advisors with input from an experienced Intelligence Analyst, using police based systems that are not available to the public.

We can show you which types of crime have been the most common in the area around your proposed site over the last year, what crime trends are surfacing and how you can design your build to minimise that attraction to criminals.

  • We will provide recommendations specific to your development based on analysis
  • Help you to demonstrate to planners that the design and access statement has considered the impact of crime
  • Help you to engage local residents therefore reducing the number of letters opposing your development
  • Enhance your company's reputation as a ‘socially conscious developer’

"I have only praise for the DOCC process. It was simple, efficient and well presented. The report was clear and our client was able to understand the recommendations and the reasoning behind them."
