The Buffalo Police Department Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is a partnership between rental property owners, managers, tenants and the Police Department. The purpose is to provide a safer living environment, and reduce crime and nuisance problems on rental properties.
The Multi-Housing City Ordinance, Section 10.11 requires that all four-plexes or larger are required to register the property as a Multi-Housing Unit with the Police Department. Owners of rental properties that do not fall under this requirement are encouraged to register their property as well.
The Police Department assists rental property owners and managers of multi-housing units within the city in developing, implementing and enforcing all laws, statutes and city ordinance as it relates to multi-housing. The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program has been a huge success in the City of Buffalo because of the partnership of all involved.
