CFMH Membership Benefits
In some properties where the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program has been implemented, there has been a reduction of crime of up to 70 percent.

Some other benefits enjoyed by participants of the program are:
  • Lower maintenance and repair costs
  • Increased property values
  • Improved personal safety for tenants, landlords, and managers
  • A stable, more satisfied tenant base
  • Increased demand for rental units with a reputation for active management
  • Use of the Crime Free logo in advertising and marketing materials 
  • 18”x24” CFMH metal sign to display at front gate or entrance of property
  • Monthly arrest report of residents living in participating CFMH properties
  • Continuous list of residents who have skipped or been evicted from other participating CFMH properties
  • A direct link to the police department through the CFMH Unit for assistance and support
  • Community name and address will be listed on the Gwinnett County Police Department’s webpage
  • Access to police calls for service and incidents that occur on the property (upon request)

Points to Consider
When drug criminals and other destructive tenants operate out of rental property, neighborhoods suffer and landlords pay a high price. That price may include:
  • Decline in property values—particularly when the activity begins affecting the reputation of the neighborhood
  • Property damage arising from abuse, retaliation, or neglect; property damage from police raids
  • Fire resulting from manufacturing or growing operations
  • Civil penalties, including temporary closure of the property or even property seizure
  • Loss of rent during the eviction and repairs period
  • Fear and frustration when dealing with dangerous and threatening tenants
  • Increased resentment and anger between neighbors and property managers
  • The loss of other valued tenants

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program was designed to help tenants, owners, and the managers of rental property keep drugs and other illegal activity off their property. This program is honest and direct. It is solution oriented. It is designed to be easy, yet very effective in reducing the incident of crime in rental property.
