Welcome to Florida Design Out Crime Association (FLDOCA)!!

In the summer of 1994 Dr. Diane Zahm brought the first group of CPTED practitioners together.

In 1995 the process of formalizing the Florida Design Out Crime Association (formerly the Florida CPTED Network – FCN) began.

In 1996 Ray Wood was elected as the first Chairperson of the FCN. That year the FCN received its 501-3C designation as a non-profit organization.
