The training session is the first step of the three phase program; Phase 2 consists of a police officer performing a security evaluation to ensure the property meets minimum security standards and Phase 3 involves the owner/manager hosting an annual Safety Social where residents can learn crime prevention techniques and tips on making their homes safer. Following the completion of all three phases, the owner/manager will earn the privilege to post signs stating they have joined the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program and may use the CFMHP logo for marketing purposes.
