Reviews of the Keeping Illegal Activity out of Rental Property 2016 Training

John Campbell

March 17, 2016
YPMA recently sponsored an excellent training opportunity at the Big Horn Resort in Billings MT.  By agreeing to fund a considerable portion of the training costs, YPMA was able to offer this training to members and non-members alike for $50.00.  Program participants earned 6.5 hours of continuing education credits through the Board of Realty Regulation for attending this course.

John Campbell of Campbell DeLong Resources, Inc. has been providing powerful trainings for landlords and other groups across the country since 1989.  He provided our group with an interesting perspective and time tested tips on crime prevention through environmental design, screening processes, community building, working with police and in other crucial areas.  Officer Tom Kieghtly, our Billings Police Department Public Relations Officer, attended the course as a guest of YPMA and offered insight on how law enforcement deals with tenant issues, helping us understand what the police can and cannot do to assist landlords.  As a course participant, Officer Tom learned what authority landlords have and what we need help with, and he took this information back to his fellow officers.

See what some of our attendees had to say about this training: 
“Excellent speaker / story teller.”
“Awesome job!  Good mixture of serious conversation and comedic conversation or comments.  Officer Tom was very helpful.”
“Great idea having an officer participate in the class.  He was extremely helpful in letting us know what cops can and cannot do – now understanding why they ‘don’t do anything’ (or so we think!)”
“Best CE class I’ve ever been to!”
“Training was on point and I enjoyed the stories and humor”
