Crime Free Multi-Housing

The Schaumburg Crime Free Multi-Housing Program was designed to assist tenants, owners and managers of rental properties in keeping drugs and other illegal activity away from properties.

This program can also be adopted by homeowners' associations to effectively address portions of associations that are rental units.

This program is simple, honest and direct. It is solution-oriented. The program has been proven highly effective if the guidelines are followed.

The program uses a unique, three-part approach that meets the crime prevention goal while maintaining a tenant-friendly approach.
 
Phase #1: Involves an eight-hour seminar presented by the Schaumburg Police Department.
Topics Include: Crime Prevention, benefits of applicant screening, crime free lease addendum, evictions and proactive management techniques.

Phase #2: CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) certification.
CPTED Reviews security requirements necessary for tenant's safety.

Phase #3: To obtain full certification, property managers will be required to hold a tenant crime prevention meeting and will be provided with materials and assistance to publicize the meeting with their tenants.

Upon completion, managers may post signs on their property indicating participation in the Schaumburg Crime Free Multi-Housing Program. Additionally, managers will be granted the use of the CFMH program logo in their brochures and advertisements.
