Crime Free Multi-Housing Program
What Is The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program?
WHERE IT BEGAN
The CRIME FREE MULTI-HOUSING PROGRAM began in Mesa, Arizona in July 1992. It has spread across the United States and to Canada in a very short time. It was designed to be law enforcement driven.
HOW IT WORKS
The CRIME FREE MULTI-HOUSING PROGRAM is a unique, three-phase certification program for rental properties of all sizes, including single family rental homes. The first phase is the completion of a seminar taught by police personnel. In addition, guest speakers will also attend to address specific topics relating to rental properties. This police-sponsored program is designed to be easily implemented, yet extremely effective at reducing criminal activity in rental properties.
The CRIME FREE MULTI-HOUSING SEMINAR addresses these topics:
- Understanding Crime Prevention
- C.P.T.E.D. Concepts (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design)
- The Application Process
- Community Rules/Leases
- Active Property Management
- Combating Crime Problems
- Police: To Serve and Protect?
- Dealing with Non-Compliance
