One of the major principles of Community Oriented Policing is a partnership between the police and the community. The police are a part of the community; and have a vital interest in the well-being of the community, but they cannot be totally effective without the community’s involvement. In today’s society, the police need to be regarded as part of a team, working in partnership with the public, including residents, property management and property owners.
The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is designed to provide our community with the best programs available in the nation for reducing illegal activity in rental property. The program consists of three phases: Property manager seminar, Crime Prevention through Environmental Design Survey, Resident Crime Prevention meeting.
In this seminar, active management principles are presented to landlords and property managers to improve the quality of their rental business. This nationally recognized program has consistently proved effective in helping landlords and property managers keep illegal activity off their property.
The seminar features instructors from the Albuquerque Police Department, UNM Police Department and property management to discuss how to recognize criminal activity on the property (specifically gang and narcotics activity) effective screening techniques, the eviction process, and a case study to tie everything together.
