CRIME FREE MULTI-HOUSING

 

The Crime Free Multi Housing program is administered amongst all 10 CPO’s with Officer Krogman and Corbin being the main administers of the program. In an effort to combat the problems that arise from distressed rental properties, the Evansville Police Department is sponsoring a creative, successful program developed in Mesa, AZ back in the early 1990’s.  This program, Crime Free Multi-Housing©, is currently used in approximately 2,000 cities worldwide, in more than a dozen countries.  It’s a new way for EPD, local landlords, and tenants to work together to combat the issues of crime and nuisance behavior at duplexes, apartment communities, and other rental properties.  It addresses these issues through better tenant screening, attempting to ease eviction processes, better sharing of information between communities and EPD, education on criminal behavior and its infectious nature, and involving the community residents and landlords together by assigning them both responsibility and accountability, without decreasing their voice in how their community is run.

 

For Further information on this program contact the Crime Prevention office at (812) 435-6135
