The Community Response Impact Team maintains a focus around apartment communities, and has implemented a program called Crime Free Multi Housing. The purpose of Crime Free Multi Housing is to:
the fear of crime and
improve the overall safety of these communities.
Crime Free Multi Housing involves a partnership between apartment owners, residents and police to tackle safety-related issues affecting these areas. The program is comprised of three steps to provide the basics for those participating.
Step 1: A 4-hour instruction class to equip apartment managers and owners with the tools they need to rid apartment communities of people contributing to crime problems.
Step 2: An assessment of the property by police officers to ensure the area is conducive to reducing crime (i.e., proper lighting, no overgrown shrubs or trees, deadbolt locks, etc.).
Step 3: Regular community meetings between police and apartment residents to reinforce crime prevention tips.
