How does the CFMH program work?

“This program has been a great eye-opener. It is amazing how I'm looking at our building with a whole other perspective.”

TM, Property Manager

This crime prevention program works by offering training, inspections, and on-going communication and support. Here are some of the effective strategies used. CFMH - How It Works

There are three steps to become a CFMH Certified property.

1. Phase 1: Building Security Training

Property managers, maintenance staff or building owners complete the Phase 1 Building Security Training. During this interactive training rental industry staff learn tips from community partners.

Date: available Jan. 1- Dec. 31, 2022

Contact cfmh@police.saskatoon.sk.ca or 306-975-8385 for registration information

2. Phase 2: Inspection

During this free (daytime and nighttime) inspection, CFMH staff ensure your building’s security features meet nine key requirements. CFMH - 9 Point Inspection

3. Phase 3: Tenant Community Event

CFMH Safety Social

Tenants who are familiar with their neighbours in the building are less likely to tolerate illegal activity, and more willing to report any suspicious behaviour. CFMH Community Events lead to a safer community as they offer a chance to meet and learn from a Saskatoon Police officer, the property manager, and other tenants.
