Completing the training was Ethelwoldus Josepha from the Korps Politie St. Maarten who left Sint Maarten on March 31st and returned on April 05th 2014. He is the first member of the Korps Politie Sint Maarten to successfully complete this course. St. Maarten’s Police Force has set the standard for CPTED Training in the Caribbean, being the first agency to have several of its officers and staff members earn the internationally recognized CPTED Professional Designation (CPD).  The training, which is 64 hours, includes two exams and a graded field assessment.  The CPTED premise is The proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime and an improvement in quality of life.”

The St. Maarten Police Force has supported and encouraged the application of CPTED concepts and design strategies throughout the island. The police force has done this through training programs and by working with the public on community initiatives to improve the overall quality of life for all of the citizens of St. Maarten.
