Crime-Free Housing


The purpose of the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is to prevent criminal activity from taking place on your property.
This includes:
  • Criminals who may reside in the property
  • Friend of a resident
  • Trespassers who commit crimes
Therefore, it is important to not rent to people who have criminal intentions. Attending our program seminar will help you navigate through this process and help you prevent crimes.
