Crime Free Multi-Housing

The Schaumburg CRIME FREE Multi-Housing Program was designed to assist tenants, owners, and managers of rental property in keeping drugs and other illegal activity away from their property.

This program can also be adopted by homeowner's associations to effectively deal with the portions of their association 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 it presents are followed.

The program uses a unique, three-part approach which ensures 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 pro-active 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.
