(September 14, 2018) -- The City of San Bernardino is continuing work to ensure property owners of multi-unit complexes create a safe and crime-free environment for residents and surrounding neighborhoods.
This week, the City is taking steps to prioritize enforcement at those multi-family properties that generate the highest number of calls for law enforcement service and which have the most code violations. The high priority enforcement properties are generally located in two areas that include Golden Ave. to the east, Del Rosa Ave. to the west, Lynwood to the north, and Date Street to the south; and north of 40th Street. The complexes in this area have collectively amassed 1,924 calls for police service in the past year alone. Also of concern is the more than 888 code enforcement cases processed in the last nine years, each one of those cases involving multiple units. Crimes at these complexes include gang and drug activity, as well as a number of other issues associated with violent crime.
