ILP Lighting Against Crime publication

The Institution of Lighting Professionals has joined forces with the Association of Chief Police Officers Secured by Design to produce a new publication called Lighting Against Crime, aimed at crime reduction professionals. The new publication, targeted at architects, builders, planners and police officers, aims to provide readers with a basic understanding of external lighting systems and the recommended levels of illumination used to combat crime, the fear of crime and antisocial behaviour. The free download will equip the intended audience with the knowledge and understanding of the importance of light with reference to reducing crime. Peter Kane, crime prevention design advisor for the Metropolitan Police, says: ‘Targeted lighting improvements have been proven to reduce crime and the fear of crime and if design partners can discuss lighting values using a common language, they will find it easier to provide a higher quality of night time environment.’ This useful document touches upon topics such as good lighting, lighting distribution, colour of light, light pollution and energy efficiency; enabling those who are using light to make the public safer gain an understanding of measures to reduce criminal opportunities.
