Police say Moody Manor is crime free

Posted: Updated:
Police say a housing development where a toddler was killed during a shooting two years ago is now crime-free.

One-year-old Keondra Hooks was killed and her two-year-old sister wounded when two men shot into their apartment.

Since that time, Toledo's been working to make its housing safer. TPD along with Saint Vincent Mercy Medical Center and the Catholic Diocese hosted a crime-free multi-housing training program with the goal of making Moody Manor the benchmark property of crime-free housing.

Dirk Kramer of the Vistuala Management Company says, "We've improved it not only setting up a better camera system out there that we have direct ties to the Toledo Police department with."

Forty property managers took notes on how they could fight crime and keep residents safe. Some may add a crime free to their leases and also work on screening applicants.

TPD is working with other housing developments they hope will adopt the program. Safety experts say 2500 developments from state-to-state have adopted the program.
