The Crime Free Housing Program is an innovative, law enforcement based crime prevention solution designed to help keep illegal activity off rental property. The International Crime Free Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to those whose mission is related to the goal and purpose of the Crime Free Programs. The Association's programs have spread to nearly 2,000 cities in 44 states. Our goal is to help any persons involved with all types of rental properties, by expanding their knowledge of the Crime Free Programs through training, networking, information sharing, and assistance with on-going and newly formed Crime Free Programs.

Three Phases of Certification
The Crime Free Housing programs consist of three-phases that are completed under the supervision of the Roswell Police Department. The cornerstone of Crime Free Housing is the partnership between law enforcement and the community working together to prevent crime. Law enforcement coordinators are certified trainers of Crime Free Housing programs and will provide the initial program training and property survey. Property owners and managers make the commitment to learn and apply the Crime Free Housing program to help keep illegal activity off their rental property. This combination of resources has proven successful in fighting crime.

Property managers can become individually certified after completing training in each phase while the physical property itself can only be certified upon completion of all three phases. The anticipated benefits of a fully certified property are reduced crime, a more stable resident base, and reduced exposure to civil liability.

Congratulations to Our Gold Partners!
