The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is a unique, three-phase certification program for rental properties of all sizes, including single family rental homes.  It is designed to educate owners and property managers of rental properties on ways to keep drugs and other illegal activity off their property.

Phase One of the program is the completion of an 8-hour class taught by police personnel with the goal of teaching rental property owners and managers ways to establish a stable, more satisfied tenant base, increase demand for rental units with a reputation for active management, lower maintenance and repair costs, and improve safety for tenants and property managers. To view a list of scheduled classes, download the registration form here or contact A. Lieberenz at (630) 693-7904 for more information.

Phase Two will certify that the rental property has met the security requirements for the residentsí safety.  A CRU officer will check for the following safety issues:

  • Locks on windows and doors
  • Strike plate with 2-3/4-inch to 3-inch screws
  • Peepholes
  • Landscaping
  • Lighting

In Phase Three, a resident crime prevention meeting will be conducted for full certification, and rental property owners and managers will be granted the use of the Crime Free Multi-Housing sign for the property.  They will also be granted use of the program logo in all advertisement.
