Crime Free Multi-Housing Program

The Pleasanton Police Department is pleased to offer the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program to help make rental properties safe and desirable places to live. The program uses a three-phase certification process and Supreme Court supported lease addendum to reduce crime on rental properties throughout the city.

To become certified, apartment communities in the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program complete this three-phase process:

  • PHASE I: Apartment community staff training (8 hour class) taught by the Police Department
  • PHASE II: C.P.T.E.D. (Crime Prevention Through Environmental design) survey –security survey of the property by the police
  • PHASE III: Safety Social – Community awareness event at the property

Full certification gives the apartment community permission to post Crime Free Multi-Housing Program signs on the property and permission to advertise certification (including use of official logos in print media). Signs are provided free of charge by the Police Department upon completion of all three phases (full certification).

Fully certified properties have reported significant reductions in police calls for service, and are featured as community partners to those looking for Pleasanton rental communities.
