One-day crime free multi-housing working Jan. 19

Mission RCMP's program helps landlords keep illegal activities off their properties

The Mission Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is a direct and solution-oriented crime prevention initiative, designed specifically to help apartment owners, managers, residents, police and other significant agencies work together to help keep illegal and nuisance activity off rental property.

It provides training in the deployment of effective property management techniques, Residential Tenancy law and encourages people to take personal interest in what goes on in their apartment community. By signing a lease addendum, the tenants agree they will not engage in criminal behavior on the rental property. Contravention of this addendum is grounds for eviction under the rules of the Residential Tenancy Act.

There will be a one-day training workshop, hosted by Mission RCMP and Abbotsford Police Department, in partnership with the BC Crime Prevention Association. This workshop is designed for property owners, property managers and resident managers and is required to complete the Phase One requirement for the CFMH Program.

The next one day workshop will be Jan. 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Mission Leisure Centre, 7650 Grand St. The cost is $75 (including GST) and pre-registration is required. Further information and a copy of the registration form can be found at www.bccpa.org.

To learn more about how you can bring the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program to your property, contact Vic Barron at the Mission Crime Prevention Office, 604-820-2722 or via e-mail at mission_cpo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
