In the second phase of the program a representative of the police department will inspect the property to assess physical security and general appearance of the property. If the property meets the agency's requirements they will move on to Phase Three. Follow-up inspections will be done until the requirements are met.
Mandatory C.P.T.E.D. Security Requirements:
If the property does not meet the mandatory C.P.T.E.D. requirements, the management will be informed of needed changes and a follow-up inspection will be conducted.
In the third and final phase of the program, the sponsoring law enforcement agency will conduct a "Safety Social" for residents. This will include information about general safety principles and crime prevention techniques. This will also give law enforcement the opportunity to explain the Crime Free Mobile Housing Program to the residents of the mobile home community.
