Members in Creating Safer Communities
through Informed Design
THE SAFE DESIGN COUNCIL HAS TWO MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES:
Associate Members of the SAFE Design Council typically are individuals who wish to develop a broad understanding of the SAFE Design Standard®, yet do not wish to actively participate in the certification process. In addition to gaining insight into the SAFE Design Standard®, associate members also learn about trends and advancements in contemporary environmental crime reduction. All associate members must complete the Associate Member Education Program (SAFE 100) and maintain their annual membership.
Accredited SAFE Design Professionals™ (ASDPs) generally are design professionals (including architects, engineers, urban planners, or landscape architects), security specialists, or others wishing to diversify their professional services by applying the SAFE Design Standard® methodology to their work and projects. ASDPs must meet the rigorous membership requirements set by the SAFE Design Council and successfully complete the Accredited SAFE Design Professional™ Educational Program (SAFE 200). ASDPs are the only persons authorized to apply the SAFE Design Standard®.
