SafeAlex: A 21st Century Opportunity for Neighborhoods


Greg Saville is a renowned expert in Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (also known as CPTED) and SafeGrowth. He publishes a blog on SafeGrowth and posted a “guest column” by Mayor Roy, titled “SafeAlex: A 21st Century Lighthouse.”

According to Saville, the Alexandria program is the first program in the nation that “explicitly incorporates” SafeGrowth as a strategy to combat crime and enhance community development. Likewise, the Alexandria newspaper, The Town Talk, published an article on the subject.
