Officials from several Chicago organizations are teaming up to help landlords increase safety in their buildings.
The Chicago Police Department is joining those from the Department of Buildings and Law, and Community Investment Corporation to host an upcoming series geared toward owners and managers of residential properties. The goal is to help those individuals increase their personal level of safety, in part by learning how to work with the police and other partners.
Topics include understanding the Housing Choice Voucher Program, tips to reduce crime at your property, understanding your building code, best practices of lease management and personal safety, according 32nd Ward Ald. Scott Waguespack's latest newsletter.
To accommodate the varying schedules of the owners and property managers, identical sessions will be offered in the morning and evening. All sessions are free to property owners and managers, but space is limited.
