Does Crime Free Multi-Housing really work?

YES!!! Crime and drug infested properties around the country have seen dramatic decreases in calls for police service after CFMH was implemented. The City of Rolling Meadows Crime Free Multi-Housing Program was started in 2012. Since then, we have experienced a substantial decrease in calls for police service in 3 of our major rental properties.  It is apparent that the efforts of our CFMH program working with rental property managers along with our beat officers and specialty units have been effective. Additionally, there is a push to have several if not all rental apartment communities either certified or becoming certified in the CFMH program. The program solicits the interest of Homeowners Associations to adopt the principals of CFMH in their rules and regulations to deal with the number of rental (non-owner occupied) units in their associations.
