New Guide to Compliance with Florida Statute 768.0706 (HB 837)

In May 2024, CIS published a comprehensive online guide to assist property owners in developing an informed strategy for compliance with Florida Statute 768.0706.

The new guide presents a complete roadmap to compliance beginning with cost-benefit analysis and initial considerations, conducting a preliminary compliance assessment, CPTED assessment, implementation and documentation of improvements, “proper crime deterrence and safety training” for employees, and maintaining ongoing compliance moving forward.

The new guide also explores a number of ambiguities in the statute, strategies for demonstrating “substantial compliance” as required by the law, and approaches for reinforcing defensibility against future court challenge.
