Richardson Apartment Managers Crime Awareness Group
The Richardson Police Department is helping local apartment owners and property managers to deter crime and protect their tenants.
The Richardson Apartment Managers Crime Awareness Group provides an avenue for property managers to partner with their Police Department to address crime issues affecting resident safety and the protection of property. Managers meet quarterly with Crime Prevention Officers, Patrol Officers, and Detectives working in their area. A guest speaker addresses a topic of interest specific to property managers. This format equips managers with information to better serve their residents and to reduce crime, while demonstrating to tenants that management is concerned about their welfare.
Apartment Community Crime Watch
While apartment community safety and security is ultimately the responsibility of the owner and management, The Richardson Police Department is empowering residents to protect themselves and their families through a neighborhood crime watch.
The Crime Prevention Unit sponsors a Resident Crime Watch program specifically for multi-family community residents. When residents partner with the police in our fight against crime, the result is a greater sense of responsibility and territorial concern for the property. With residents taking control of their own community, they feel safer while criminals feel more at risk of detection and apprehension. Resident involvement may also compel managers to become more involved.
