Sheriff’s Ramona Substation Lt. James Bovet, second from right, presents Anna Melgoza, manager of the Raymond Ritz apartments, 1811 Raymond Ave., with a certificate and an official sign showing she has completed a class and the apartment complex has been certified in the San Diego County Sheriff Department’s Crime Free Multi-Housing Program. Raymond Ritz was the first apartment complex to be certified in the program. Standing with Bovet and Melgoza are Crime Prevention Specialist Barbara Wallace and Sgt. Kurt Torsak, both with the Ramona substation. Bovet said the sign should be placed outside the apartment complex and is a powerful tool to keep multi-housing crime free.
Below, Wallace and Bovet present a Crime Free Housing certificate and sign to Stephanie Infanger, manager of Peppertree apartments, 130 14th St., and Kyle Beach, regional director of Hyder Property Management Company, which oversees the complex. Infanger completed the sheriffs department’s class on crime free housing. Bovet said his goal is to see all multi-family units involved in the program.
