The Burnaby RCMP invites all rental property owners, property managers, resident managers, and police to attend a workshop to learn about the Crime Free Multi-Housing program, aimed at reducing criminal activity in apartment complexes.

Crime Free Multi-Housing is helps create safe apartment communities through a co-operative effort of all involved—apartment owners, managers, residents and police.

The program has three phases: Phase 1 is an eight-hour workshop where  participants learn how to reduce crime and bring in good tenants. Phase 2 is a security assessment of the property where recommendations are made for physical changes to improve security of the property such as trimming back shrubbery (crime prevention through environmental design). Phase 3 is the safety social, where residents are presented with important crime prevention information.

Phase 1 is being held at Burnaby city hall council chambers, 4949 Canada Way,  Tuesday, April 17, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. To register, call the B.C. Crime Prevention Association at 604-501-9222.
