Why join Cal-DOCA?
As a planning and urban design professional, law enforcement official, or other party in the planning and design review process, ask yourself this:
• Are you getting the most from your city and police planning processes?
• Is CPTED fully adopted and utilized to help reduce the likelihood of negative-impact land uses?
• Are you working to condition land uses so that they do not reduce the quality of life in your city, or negatively impact public safety?
• Are you aware that you can take existing land uses that are causing a negative impact on the community back before the Planning
Commission to amend operational conditions to lessen these impacts?
• Are you aware that you can accomplish all of this at no cost to your department by having the applicant/developer pay as they go
through the planning process?
Through involvement in Cal-DOCA and integrating CPTED into the process, you can:
• Enhance the quality of life in your city, and make police staff hours available for proactive police work.
• Work with the public to prevent problems, as opposed to correcting problems retroactively.
• Get more positive “bang for the limited bucks” received by police and city services as annual funding.
• Encourage your Crime Prevention Bureau to participate through involvement in LEEPAC, by sharing problems, information and
experiences with the membership, and in formalized training programs. LEEPAC active membership also includes private consultants that
can assist you with the process or specific problem areas.
