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 completing Phase One of the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program (September 2014).

Heritage, Hidden Lakes, The Ranch at Fossil Creek, Haltom Oaks, Club at Springlake, Lakeview, Cornerstone, The Woods of Haltom, Fossil Ridge, Desert Sands, Oaks at Jane Lane, Fairway on the Park, Rio Vista, Fossil Hill, Spanish Square, Haltom Housing Authority, Springdale, Layton Manor, Springlake, North Hills Crest, Warren Inn, Fossil Hill, Bellagio and White Creek Estates.
