Crime Free Multi-Housing Program

Crime Free Multi-Housing Programs are innovative, law enforcement based crime prevention solutions designed to help keep illegal activity off rental property. The programs were developed by the Mesa Arizona Police Department in 1992. The International Crime Free Programs have been extremely successful in nearly 2,000 cities in 44 U.S. states and ten other countries.

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program consists of three phases that are completed under the supervision of local law enforcement. The cornerstone of the Crime Free Program is the partnership between law enforcement and the community working to prevent crime. Property owners and managers make the commitment to apply the Crime Free Program in an effort to keep illegal activity off their rental property. This combination of resources has proven to have positive, long-term effects in fighting crime. Property managers can become individually certified after completion of the training phase, while the physical property itself can only be certified upon completion of all three phases. The anticipated long term benefits of a fully certified property are reduced crime, a more stable resident base, and reduced exposure to civil liability.

The Haltom City Police Department implemented the program in October, 2011 and has trained  all 26 apartment complexes, soon to be followed by rental properties, hotels/motels and businesses. The program coordinator is Officer Brandi Perkins, who can be reached at 817 222-7198 or by filling out this contact form (select Brandi Perkins under Investigative Services division).

Congratulations to the following apartment communities for their participation in the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program.

Spraygrounds Now Open

haltom city broadway park spraygroundThe Spraygrounds at Broadway Park and Whites Branch Park are back in action for the season, beginning Friday, May 27th. Hours of operation are 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., seven days a week. Hours will be subject to change due to water restrictions, weather, or unforeseen repairs. The spraygrounds will close for the season Labor Day weekend. Shelters at these parks will not be available to rent during this time. In order to keep our spraygrounds safe and enjoyable for everyone, please follow a few simple rules:

  • Please monitor your children for safety
  • Appropriate clothing is required
  • No water balloons, glass containers, bicycles, skates, or skateboards allowed on the sprayground
  • Please do not put anything into the spouts or fixtures or block the drains. This causes damage that will require closing the sprayground

Please do your part to help keep our parks clean and pick up after yourself. We hope you enjoy this refreshing summer activity!
