The Woodbury Crime Free Multi-Housing (CFMH) program is a partnership between the Public Safety Department, rental property owners and managers and tenants. This program replaces the Safer Tenants and Rentals (STAR) program that was implemented in the late 1990s.
The mission of the CFMH program is to:
Decrease crime and create a safe environment in multi-housing communities
Build trust between apartment management and law enforcement to work together to problem solve within multi-housing communities
Increase crime reporting within multi-housing communities and build relationships between all CFMH communities
The program begins with an eight hour training instructed by the program coordinator to attain Phase I certification. Phase II is an inspection of the property to ensure basic crime prevention concepts are met in accordance with the program guidelines. Phase III (final phase) is a community gathering of properties to discuss safety and crime prevention. Once all phases are complete, a property will be fully certified. Fully-certified properties have nationally reported reductions in police calls up to 70% over previous years.
If you don't see a CFMH certificate displayed at your community, please call the Woodbury Public Safety department at 651-714-3600 to check on the property's status.
