NORMAN — The Norman Police Department will have a management training course for local apartment managers as part of their Crime Free Multi-Housing Program.

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. The class will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 19 at the Moore Norman Technology Center, Room H 202. Master Police Officer Teddy Wilson said those interested should RSVP by Friday.

“This gives us a better partnership with our local apartment managers and owners by having a direct line of communication with the police department,” Wilson said, “which in turn helps the city feel safer because their managers are showing they’re dedicated to their safety.”

Wilson said it also gives them a better partnership with local apartment managers and owners.

The course will cover topics such as an introduction to crime prevention, crime prevention through environmental design, fire safety, the Landlord Tenant Act and drug trend recognition.

The course is Phase One of the program, which includes three phases. Phase Two consists of a security survey of the apartment complex property by police. Phase Three involves community-awareness training.
