Board of Supervisors approve anti-crime training law for landlords

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego County wants landlords to take crime-reduction training if police are called to their apartments too many times.

The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously approved a law requiring owners to take the program if their apartments generate 10 or more police calls in a 90-day period.

Those who don't would be prohibited from renting their units and could face fines of $2,500 or more.

The program would teach property owners techniques such as proper lighting, starting a Neighborhood Watch and how to identify gang activity.

The measure — which only applies to landlords in unincorporated county areas — needs a second vote next month before it takes effect.
