Crime Free Multi HousingKeep Illegal Activity Off Rental Property!


When drug criminals and other destructive tenants operate out of rental property, neighborhoods suffer and landlords pay a high price. That price may include:

  • Decline in property values -- particularly when the activity begins affecting the reputation of the neighborhood
  • Property damage arising from abuse, retaliation, or neglect; property damage from police raids
  • Fire resulting from manufacturing or growing operations.  Civil penalties, including temporary closure of the property -- or even property seizure. Loss of rent during the eviction and repair periods
  • Fear and frustration when dealing with dangerous and threatening tenants.  Increased resentment and anger between neighbors and property managers
  • The loss of other valued tenants

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is a, state-of-the-art, crime prevention program designed to reduce crime, drugs, and gangs on apartment properties.
The program consists of three phases that must be completed under the supervision of the local police department.  Property managers can become individually certified after completing training in each phase and the property becomes certified upon successful completion of all three phases.
The anticipated benefits are reduced police calls for service, a more stable resident base, and reduced exposure to civil liability.
