Tiffani Denny, manager of the Ramona Mountain Valley apartments, receives a Crime Free sign from sheriff's Crime Prevention Specialist Barbara Wallace. Apartment managers are certified in the program after taking a class through the sheriff’s department. Bovet calls it a powerful tool to keep multi-housing crime free. Eight apartment communities in Ramona are certified in the program and five more will be certified in the next few months. For more information, call Wallace at 760-738-2425.
