Does Crime Free Multi-Housing really work?
Yes! This multi-faceted approach to crime prevention is designed to assist property owners and managers to pro-actively avoid problems on the property. Crime and drug infested properties around the country have seen dramatic decreases in calls for police service after CFMH was implemented. On average there is a 68% reduction in calls for service once the CFMH program is set into place. For example the Village of Schaumburg started their Crime Free Multi-Housing Program in 1999. Since then, they have experienced an 11% decrease in calls for police service at their 18 major rental properties. It is apparent that their efforts of their CFMH program working with rental property managers along with their beat teams and specialty units have been effective.
