On Tuesday, June 5, rental property managers have an opportunity to join police in addressing crime in rental properties. The Columbia Police Department will host Crime Free Multi-Housing Training at the Regional Training Center located at 5001 E. Meyer Industrial Drive from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Developed in 1992, the Crime Free Multi-Housing program takes a multifaceted approach to crime prevention and includes a unique coalition of police, property managers, and residents of rental properties. The program is designed to be an on-going program, including three phases, to address all the opportunities of crime in rental property. Tuesday’s training will be the first phase of the program.
One community liaison officer is dedicated to organizing and providing training for the program. Officer Jason McClintic was selected in 2017 to fill this role and serve at the Office of Neighborhood Services.
"The program offers a comprehensive and streamlined approach to keeping multi-family homes safer," said McClintic.
There are seven fully certified Crime Free Multi-Housing properties in Columbia, five of which are student housing complexes. For a list of these properties, or to register for the training visit: www.CoMo.gov/Police/Crime-Free-Multi-Housing-Program.
