The Crime Free Multi-Housing (CFMH), a partnership between police and local property owners or managers, is designed to make multi-family dwellings and single family rental homes safe. Property owners, managers, assistant managers, leasing agents, office staff, maintenance staff and all who work with housing are encouraged to participate in the program. The program includes three phases to achieve a safe environment: Phase I is an eight-hour management training course taught by the police (Green certificate); Phase II is a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) survey administered by the police (Red certificate); and Phase III is community awareness training, held as a social event, in which management of rental-housing property and police teach crime prevention to the residents (Blue certificate).
This free eight hour course will cover principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED); applicant screening; evictions; Police Management Partnerships; Drug, Gang warning signs and Crime Prevention. Lunch will be from noon to 1 p.m. All attendees will receive a certificate signifying completion of the first phase of training in the "Crime Free Multi Housing Program."
"Attending this meeting shows the commitment of staff towards their residents, the community and the City of Fremont. Please join the Fremont Police Department in our efforts to maintain our city's reputation as one of the best cities to reside in the State of California. Those who have already attended may send other members of your staff," said Crime Free Coordinator, Fremont Police Department, Kimberly Macdonald.
