Once fully certified, the property manager will receive a gold certificate. This Certificate should be posted behind the front desk with the certificates obtained in Phase I
and Phase II
. This certificate is the only certificate that has an expiration date. It is renewed each year after the subsequent annual Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (C.P.T.E.D.) evaluation has been completed.
Crime Free Hotel / Motel Logo
An added incentive to reach full certification is the use of the Crime Free Hotel / Motel Program logo in all appropriate advertisements as well as on the company letterhead, business cards, and associated paperwork. The subsequent Crime Free Hotel / Motel logo is expected to:
- Achieve the same level of recognition as other Crime Free Programs
- Attract honest guests seeking overnight lodging
- Discourage abusers seeking rooms for the purpose of conducting criminal activities
