Crime-free housing certification promotes safer rental housing
The Marietta Police Department collaborates with property managers and residents to keep crime out of rental properties as part of the crime-free housing program. A certified property can enjoy a dramatic reduction in police calls for their residents.
The crime-free housing program was developed to create a coalition among police, property managers and residents of rental properties to work together to keep crime out of rental properties. It involves a certification process for properties that are involved.
Part of the program requires rental agreements including a crime free lease addendum listing specific crimes, which if committed by a lessee, will result in immediate termination of the resident's lease.
By achieving the designation as a crime-free housing area, historically apartment complexes have enjoyed a reduction in crime rates, as well as higher occupancy rates. The Marietta Police Department is optimistic the overall impact of the crime-free housing program will make Marietta a safer place.
Incentives are offered for reaching this certification, including training provided by law enforcement.
