CRIME FREE MULTI-HOUSING PROGRAM OVERVIEW
There are more than 224 apartment communities in the City limits of Orlando. As of April 2014, there are 25 fully certified properties.
We are using three separate databases to monitor, maintain and distribute information on Tenant Criminal Violations and General Offenders.
- The Easy Tracking database is used in-house to manage data on all apartment communities and the G.O.A.L (General Offender Awareness List).
- The OPD AS400 system tracks arrests on all properties currently in the CFMH Program.
- The Easy Tracking database has a public access side that allows managers to access the G.O.A.L. by using an OPD-issued password.
We are currently tracking arrests on 135 properties through our AS400 Database.
There are currently 80(plus) properties in the CFMH Easy Tracking Database (In-house data management).
There are more than 2100 people in the OPD CFMH General Offender Awareness List (G.O.A.L.). This concept was created, developed, and implemented by the Orlando Police CPD Team and is now being made available to the International Crime Free community. The Database lists all persons arrested on Crime Free Certified Properties, as well as other properties in the Database. All adult misdemeanor and felony arrests are entered into the database. Juvenile felonies are entered into the database. All information in the G.O.A.L. Database meets public records standards and rules.
There are thousands of arrests to date that have been captured by our AS400 CFMH Database. This database was designed and built specifically for the CFMH Program by City of Orlando Technology Management Personnel.
How the three databases work together
- Apartment communities are entered into the Easy-Tracking database.
- The communities are then entered into the AS400 CFMH database.
- The AS400 then captures the arrest of a resident of a CFMH property (anywhere in the city), and any arrest on a CFMH property. (The system updates nightly at 2200 hours).
- The CFMH Coordinator checks the AS400 database daily and enters all arrests (except Juvenile misdemeanors), into the G.O.A.L. database. (This information is available only to CFMH Certified properties).
- The CFMH Coordinator then emails a form with the arrestee’s information and case information.
The CFMH Coordinator is currently conducting an audit to determine how many arrestees have been evicted or asked to move out based on the information provided from the AS400 arrest database. (There are hundreds of arrests on CFMH Certified properties. All properties have been notified. We are confident that most of those individuals have been evicted or asked to leave. There have been no evictions as of 1/2013. All persons leave voluntarily).
