There are two main crime prevention programs that Metro Vancouver Housing participates in. Local police determine the crime prevention program(s) they support in each specific municipality:
The Crime Free Multi Housing Program
The program is designed to help owners/managers and residents of multi-unit rental property work with police and other agencies to keep illegal and nuisance activity off the property.
The Block Watch Program
The program a resident-led program where residents are liaisons with the local police. Neighbourhood issues are brought directly to local police who keep block watch participants informed.
Regardless of which program is in place in each municipality, Metro Vancouver Housing supports tenants by arranging meetings between residents and local police in response to residents’ concerns regarding personal safety and security.
