Objective – Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) is a crime prevention philosophy based on the theory that proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime, as well as an improvement in the quality of life. Natural surveillance in CPTED aims at keeping potential intruders or criminals under observation. Panopticism is a surveillance concept. The concept of panopticism served the aim of natural surveillance in CPTED. Therefore the objective of this research is to determine the mapping of panopticism concept as one of the technique in crime prevention through environmental design
Methodology/Technique – Qualitative research is used for the study and production of solutions. The method used in this research with the following work sequences: Understanding literature, analysis descriptive, discussion and conclusion.
Findings –These five panopticism techniques can be used as part of natural surveillance in CPTED (three pattern of building design). As a result, the three patterns of building design in CPTED that can be implemented with the five panopticism techniques.
Novelty – This paper is about identifying the concept of panopticism as one of the surveillance technique and solutions in crime prevention through environmental design.
