Livermore Launches 'State-Of-The-Art Crime Prevention Program' for Apartments

Landlords interested in taking part in the 'Crime Free Multi-Housing Program' can contact the Livermore Police Crime Prevention Unit.

Some property values in Livermore are likely to benefit from a "new state-of-the-art crime prevention program designed to reduce crime, drugs activities, and gang issues/crimes on apartment properties" being adopted by Livermore Police.

The program, launched by the Livermore Police Department, is modeled after a successful program that originated in Mesa Arizona Police Department over 22 years ago and has been implemented throughout 2,000 cities across the nation, along with countries like Mexico, England, Finland, Japan, Russia, Malaysia, Puerto Rico and Canada.

Police officials say landlords who own multi-housing units can still sign up to take part in the program by contacting the Crime Prevention Unit at the Livermore Police Department.

Full details of the program can be found below:

The program consists of three phases that must be completed under the supervision of the local police department. Property managers can become individually certified after completing training in each phase and the property becomes certified upon successful completion of all three phases.

The benefits of the CFMH Program are a stable and more satisfied tenant base. With the reduction of crime within the apartment complex, tenant retention has increased. 

There has also been an increased demand for rental units because of the reputation for active apartment management team. Apartment communities have seen lower maintenance and repair costs, increased property values, and improved personal safety for tenants, increase quality of life for tenants, landlords, and managers.

Full certification allows the apartment communities to post the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program sign and advertise membership in the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program in their print media using the official logo. 

On January 14, 2014, LPD had our first landlord/owner training. The City of Livermore administered this program along with our surrounding participating cities, Pleasanton, San Ramon and Dublin. LPD will hold additional trainings in the future and once dates are set, an announcement will follow.

If you are a property owner or landlord of a multi housing unit and would like more information about this program please contact the Crime Prevention Unit AT (925) 371-4978.

Oh, and by the way, I'm glad the police are downtown chatting up those people that seem to have nothing better to do than hang around the Panama Red coffee shop whining about global warming, "the man" holding them down, the lack of more free government hand outs, and chain smoking cancer sticks then throwing the butts on the sidewalk. As for the pot club, it won't last. Invariably greed will overcome any altruistic motives for spreading the herb.

Thanks for your opinion, but your just a rat and I don't get tickets haven't gotten one in 8 years. I also wasn't talking about Panama Red either when it comes to downtown. I could care less about what those lunatics have to say. I don't even litter and I obey the law in every way. I don't hate cops. Most of them are decent people, but when you arrest someone for drinking two beers and saying that they are drunk in public when they can clearly take care of themselves and aren't a threat to others and then you arrest their friend for asking why he is being arrested. That is called a power trip and pretty soon one of these cops are going to arrest the wrong person and they are going to get fired and the city is going to be sued. Btw wasn't me I just know the person and that person and his friends still get harassed by the same cop. I won't mention the cop by name because that just won't be right. I'll wait till he slips up and gets fired.
