USA – The Rent Rite Directory’s free rental history (Incident Reporting) database helps to improve multi-housing communities, and assist with crime prevention. The Incident Reporting database is able to track evictions, skips, proxy renters (those with qualifying credit who rent on behalf of unauthorized tenants such as sex offenders, convicted felons, or human traffickers), on property crime, property damage, and share this information with other Real Estate Professionals and their communities.
The company’s representatives are regularly asked to teach crime prevention techniques at Crime Watch Meetings, Crime Free Association Conferences, and works with law enforcement nationwide to educate property owners and managers about being proactive in their communities, starting with who they allow into them.
Many communities communicate with their local Police Departments only after an incident has occurred. The RRD created a free community alert system that allows local Law Enforcement Departments to send out geo-positioned alerts ranging from warnings of suspicious activity in the area, rise in certain types of crime in the neighborhood, wanted criminals, or just a simple road closure. This system promotes further a proactive channel of communication between the two. Law Enforcement Officers are able to sign up to send alerts out, in as little as five minutes.
The RRD has made their website a one-stop-shop for any property manager or owner to use to screen their new residents with their competitive and comprehensive tenant screening services, which pull information from Microbilt, a company that has been in service for over 30 years, and that updates their information daily. Clients are also able to collect more information about the applicants they have, and report any incidents that have occurred on their property.
The website was designed specifically for members of the Real Estate Community, and Law Enforcement Officers by Property Owners Joe Killinger and George Pino of Learning Links Centers (a socially responsible Real Estate Investment Company). It is an effective means of communication between two groups who have a large responsibility to improve and protect their communities. By educating at crime watch meetings the Rent Rite Directory hopes to engage every apartment community nationwide to screen their applicants, and to not compromise the security of their staff and residents, simply to fill vacancies. They can then report problem tenants to help out their neighbors, as well as other professionals nationwide.
