Crime Free Multi-Housing

Program Overview

Crime Free Multi-Housing Logo The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program was developed at the Mesa Arizona Police Department in 1992, with the goal of reducing crime, drug, and gang activity in rental properties. The program is sponsored by the International Crime Free Association which provides training and other assistance to law enforcement agencies in the administration of their programs. The program has been successfully implemented in more than 2,000 cities in 48 U.S. States. According to the International Crime Free Association the program achieves almost instant success, with properties certified in the program showing an average 75-90% reduction in crime and/or police calls for service. The purpose of the program is to gain the commitment of property owners, managers, tenants, and the community to maintain properties free of illegal or destructive activity and to promote a higher quality of life within each neighborhood.

Program Outline

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program consists of three-phases that are conducted by or with the support of the Layton Police Department. Property managers can become individually certified after completing training in each phase and the property becomes certified upon successful completion of all three phases.

Program Phases


Phase One is an 8-hour training seminar for property managers presented by the police department. Topics include tenant screening, crime prevention, evictions and drug/gang recognition. Attendees receive a certificate upon completion.


Phase Two is a security assessment of the rental property to certify that minimum safety requirements have been met. Management will also receive suggestions from certified Crime Free Officers on how to improve the property to help meet program goals and reduce illegal activity while improving the living conditions of the property.


Phase Three is a crime prevention meeting for tenants run by the management with support from the Layton Police Department. The property then receives full certification and will receive signage for the property, the ability to use the Crime Free logo and name in advertising as well as more direct lines of communication to and from Officers regarding property issues.
