A Defensible Space Project: Deterring Crime and Building Community in Rogers Park

Jul 25, 1997
  • Description

The research for this report was carried out by teams of community residents and university students to expand the residents' knowledge and awareness of defensible space strategies; to develop recommendations to improve the community; and to enable the residents to use the recommendations and develop a plan of action that increases community safety.

The report can be used as a how-to manual for future defensible space projects.
