Crime Free Mini Storage

The Crime Free Mini-Storage Program was designed to help renters, owners, and managers of mini-storage properties keep drugs and other illegal activity off their property. This program is designed to be easy, yet very effective in reducing the incidents of crime in mini-storage properties.

The program utilizes a unique three-part approach that ensures the crime prevention goal, while maintaining an approach, which is very customer friendly. Phase One involves a four-hour seminar presented by the police and fire departments. Phase Two will certify that the mini-storage facility has met the security requirements of the Peoria Police Department. After full certification, the managers will be granted the use of large metal signs for display on the property. The management will also be granted the use of the police department's program logo in all advertisements.
