about crime prevention. Crime Free Housing Benefits
CFHP is an international program that began in 1992 and is in approximately 1,700 American and Canadian cities in 43 U.S. states and 4 Canadian provinces.
How the Program Works: Personnel from Tacoma's Police, Human Rights and Human Services, Fire and Public Works Departments have teamed up to tailor this innovative
