The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program was developed at the Police Department of Mesa, Arizona, in 1992 and has since spread throughout the United States and Canada. The program has been implemented in over 40 states, 4 Canadian Provinces, and over 1,400 cities including cities in Japan, Finland and Puerto Rico. Property managers are reaping the benefits of reduced crime, better community awareness, increased property values, more attractive neighborhoods, advertisement of participation and improved quality of life.
Getting involved in the City's Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is simple. There are no requirements other than the desire to establish or maintain a "Crime Free" environment. The three phases of the program do not have to be completed in consecutive order; however, we do recommend attendance of the Phase I Training Class first, as this class outlines all three phases of the program. Once the apartment community is fully certified, the property will be allowed to display Crime Free Multi-Housing signs. The property will also be granted use of the program logo for marketing purposes.
