Crime Free Multi-Housing Program

In 1992, the Mesa, Arizona Police Department created the crime free multi-housing program to reduce nuisance and criminal activity in rental properties. The success of this program can be attributed to the mutual cooperation between the local police department, rental property management, and residents with the end goal of creating a safer community for everyone to live in and enjoy.

Below you will find the complete program broken down into sections.  A complete manual can be downloaded at the bottom of this list.  These files are saved in Portable Document Format (PDF) that requires Adobe Acrobat Reader.
