  • Visit the Tempe Police Department website at www.tempe.gov/cau to view the apartment community calls for service bulletin (crime stats)
  • Inspect the apartment community both day and night for activity.
  • Check the property for curb appeal. Does the management company care about the property? Do they trim the bushes, maintain the lighting, physical appearance gives you the impression someone cares and shows ownership.
  • Interview other residents that reside at the property. Ask them do they feel safe? How does management handle issues?
  • The management company will be interviewing you as a prospective resident. You would want to interview the management company to make sure they meet your expectations.
  • Ask the management company if they participate in the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program.
  • Ask the management company if they provide courtesy patrol.
