The Gang & Drug House Ordinance is very helpful to building owners who are concerned about crime occurring in and around their property. Buildings that have 2 felony arrests on their property are eligible for assistance from the City to help them find effective ways to make the area in and around their building safer.
Building owners that are not motivated to make needed changes can be fined up to $10,000 per day per occurrence if they are not willing to take appropriate action.
The Drug & Gang House Ordinance gets triggered in the following ways:
- A multitude of arrests occur on that property and the Police will take steps to work with the owner to make the area safer.
- Other residents and business owners observe crimes in and around a particular property, and they complete the "Gang/Drug House Information" form.
