City Promotes Crime-Free Program for Multi-Family Housing
The city and the Gwinnett County Police Department hosted a luncheon for apartment managers on Thursday, Oct. 23, to introduce a program aimed at reducing crime in multi-family housing units.
Crime Free Multi-Housing Program, which works in cooperation with property owners, residents and police, is designed to help reduce crime, drugs and gangs in apartment communities. The program, first developed in 1992 by the Mesa Arizona Police Department, has a proven track record in other Gwinnett communities where crimes have dropped by 16 percent in just the first year.
"Reducing crime increases property values, creates a higher demand for the apartments - and more importantly it improves the safety of our residents," said Mayor Mike Mason.
Apartment mangers listen as Officer David Martinez explained the program that works in cooperation with property owners, residents and police to help reduce crime, drugs and gangs in apartment communities.
