Natural surveillance

Secured by design, Commercial Developments, Version 2, 2015, published by Secured by Design, suggests that natural surveillance is:

‘An architectural design that limits the opportunity for crime by enhancing the chance that a potential offender might be or will be seen. The effectiveness of such measures relies on witnesses reacting to and or reporting what they have seen to others to enforce the law and the potential offender’s expectation of such a reaction.’
