The Columbia Heights Police Department wishes to work with rental property owners to realize a mutual benefit by reducing crime and disturbances. As such, the department hosts a quarterly forum to assist rental property owners through training and an exchange of ideas. With over 800 rental properties in Columbia Heights, the quarterly forum and training is not required like many suburban cities, but rental licensees are highly encouraged to attend to keep up-to-date on this dynamic form of business. All licensees and their managers or caretakers are welcome. Invitations are sent to current rental license holders.
