Crime Free Multi-Housing Program

Note: The St. Louis Park City Council discussed the crime-free multi-housing program at its Dec. 10, 2018, study session, and will revisit the discussion at its Dec. 17 regular meeting. Read more about this discussion.

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is for rental property owners and managers and is designed to reduce the incidents of crime and disorder in rental housing. The program consists of three phases:

  • Phase one — Eight hours of training on tenant screening, lease addendum, evictions, etc.
  • Phase two — Physical survey of the building to make sure it meets minimum security requirements such as deadbolt locks, 180-degree peep holes, interior and exterior lighting, etc.
  • Phase three — Crime prevention meeting to show tenants security precautions they can take to protect themselves and their belongings.

Phase one training is held in June and December. The most recent training was held Dec. 6, 2018 at City Hall. If you are interested in attending, complete the crime free multi-housing registration form.

For more information, call 952.924.2661.
