PHASE I Crime Free Multi Housing Management Training
NOTE:  This is for PHASE I of the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program, which is now a REQUIREMENT
            for Apartment Managers under Apartment House Code (6.12.090). You can DOWNLOAD
            a letter from the NSAA and LVMPD regarding this change

                  CODE (6.12.090). Just RSVP above to RESERVE your spot!

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program began to help reduce crimes and
                  police calls for service in multi-housing properties like apartment communities.
                  The goal of the Crime Free Multi-Housing program is to introduce crime
                  prevention techniques to rental property as to reduce the likelihood of criminal
                  activity occurring on the premises.

                  Being part of a crime-free program is a true team effort. Tenants and management
                  are involved and strongly encouraged to report any suspicious activity to your
                  local Police Department in order to promote safety for themselves, their families
                  and their community.

                  When criminals and other destructive tenants operate out of rental property,
                  neighborhoods suffer and landlords pay a high price. That price may include:

  • Decline in property values -- particularly when the activity begins
    affecting the reputation of the neighborhood.
  • Property damage arising from abuse, retaliation, or neglect;
    property damage from police raids.
  • Fire resulting from manufacturing or growing operations.
  • Civil penalties, including temporary closure of the property -- or
    even property seizure.
  • Loss of rent during the eviction and repair periods.
  • Fear and frustration when dealing with dangerous and threatening
  • Increased resentment and anger between neighbors and property
  • The loss of other valued tenants.

                   The program uses a three-part approach for a property to become fully certified
                   in the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program.

                   NOW REQUIRED -----> PHASE ONE involves an 8 hour seminar presented by
                   the police department for the apartment management and employees.

                   PHASE TWO will certify that the rental property has met the security requirements
                   for the tenants' safety.

                   In PHASE THREE a tenant crime prevention meeting will be conducted for full
                   certification, and the managers will be granted the use of large metal signs for
                   display on the property. The management will also be granted the use of the
                   program logo in all advertisements.
