Crime-Free Housing Seminars

Crime Free Housing - Copy

The Woodridge Crime Free Housing Seminar was designed to assist owners and managers of rental property within the community in keeping their property safe, with crime prevention concepts in mind. This class can also be used by homeowner’s associations to effectively deal with rental units within the association.

This program will give you the tools to properly screen potential tenants, identify problem tenants, educate on the eviction process, and many more guidelines that if used will prove highly effective.  When you attend the program you will learn more about the crime free addendum that you can use with your lease agreements with your tenants.

The seminar is a four-hour mandatory class that is required to be taken only once. It is free of charge and we require that you RSVP your attendance (see contact information below). Walk-ins are welcome. A certificate will be produced upon completing the class and will need to be submitted with any registration or application for any and all rental units owned within the Village.

A Crime Free Housing Seminar will take place in the Community Room of the new Police Department, located at 7215 Janes Avenue, on the following dates:

  • March 14, 2024 at 5:30 PM
  • April 11, 2024 at 5:30 PM
Completed class certificates are also accepted from other communities. A Google search of "Crime Free Housing Seminars in Illinois" can produce a list of municipalities that offer classes, which include Naperville, Aurora, Country Club Hills, Palatine, Schaumburg, Mount Prospect, and Carol Stream.
