The Crime Free Multi-Housing (CFMH) program reduces crime, drugs and gangs in apartment complexes.
The program is a joint venture between apartment complex management and the Police Department. This pro-active partnership has proven to provide safer communities and neighborhoods.
Residents can check the crime rate for any specific apartment complex by going to the police department's police blotter.
For an apartment complex to become a certified CFMH property, it must complete three phases of training under police supervision:
- Train all apartment personnel on the program;
- Undergo a free security survey conducted by the police department; and
- Host a community awareness safety social.
Once all steps have been completed, property management can advertise the program to its tenants.
