Attempts are underway to make Vernon apartment buildings and strata complexes safer.

On July 26, there will be a crime-free, multi-housing training workshop for property owners, property managers and resident managers.

“The 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,” said Regan Borisenko, crime prevention co-ordinator.

“The program provides training in the deployment of effective property management techniques, effective use of residential tenancy law and encourages people to take personal interest in what goes on in their apartment community.”

The workshop will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Vernon city hall.

The cost is $75 and pre-registration is required.

More information and a copy of the registration form can be found at www.bccpa.org.

The workshop is hosted by the Vernon RCMP Safe Communities Unit and the B.C. Crime Prevention Association.
