The Broken Windows theory, introduced by George Kelling and James Wilson in 1982, and the tenets of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Control (CPTED), demonstrate the need to address disorder, blight and low-level environmental disruption as a deterrent from larger crimes and gathering points for criminal activity. Code enforcement officers are an invaluable part of preventing those environmental disruptions from coming to fruition.

In this episode of the Policing Matters podcast, host Jim Dudley speaks with Code Enforcement Manager Justin Edson, who serves as president of the Code Enforcement Officer Safety Foundation, about how law enforcement can collaborate with code enforcement officers to address crime prevention, plus the safety risks facing code enforcement officers.
