Apartment crime program to be decided

The Reno City Council will decide this week whether to require managers of large apartment complexes to complete a crime-prevention training program.

The free training for managers of complexes of 120 or more units would be provided by the police department's community affairs unit.

The council, which gave a preliminary OK to the proposal late last month, has scheduled a final vote for Wednesday. If it's approved and takes effect Friday, managers would have 180 days to complete the training.

New managers would have 45 days to complete the training. Fines would be levied against managers who fail to comply.

After 18 months, the police department will consider asking the City Council to make the training mandatory for managers of smaller complexes as well.
