Regulating crime prevention design into consumer products: Learning the lessons from electronic vehicle immobilisation


[2013] This paper is concerned with CPTED on the product level: crime proofing = making products crime proof; the regulation of manufactured consumer products to reduce crime. It draws on the experiences of regulating motor manufacturers to improve new car security. The paper focuses on the lessons that can be learned from the regulation of electronic vehicle immobilisation, which contributed to significant reductions in vehicle theft in Australia. These lessons could be applied to a range of desirable consumer products that are susceptible to theft, including MP4 players, tablets/laptops, cameras and games consoles
