Business and Home C.P.T.E.D. (Crime Prevention Through Enviornmental Design) Inspections
The Crime Prevention Unit offers free inspections to businesses, residences and multi-family complexes upon request.

Crime Free Multi-Housing Program
This crime prevention program is designed to reduce crime, drugs, and gang activity on apartment properties. The program consists of three phases that must be completed under the supervision of the Chino Police Department. Property managers become individually certified after completing phase-one training. The property itself becomes certified upon successful completion of all three phases. The anticipated benefits are reduced police calls for service, a more stable resident base, and reduced exposure to civil liability.

Phase 1- Manager/Owner Instruction
In this free 8-hour course, managers and owners are instructed on such issues as Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (C.P.T.E.D.), tenant screening, crime-free lease addendums, crime prevention, community awareness and other pertinent issues.
Phase 2 - C.P.T.E.D. Inspection
The Crime Prevention Unit will provide a C.P.T.E.D. Inspection for the complex and provide the manager/owner with suggestions on any necessary improvements.
Phase 3 - Resident Social/Neighborhood Watch Meeting
Residents will be invited to participate in a social gathering, where they will learn the principles of Neighborhood Watch and Crime Free Multi-Housing.
Following the completion of all three phases, complexes will be authorized to post their Crime Free Multi-Housing signage. For more information on this program, please call Crime Prevention Specialist, Leah Green at (909) 334-3060.
