As landlords, we usually prefer that certain government entities stay far away from our rental properties for as long as possible. When it comes to the police, tough, we appreciate how fast they respond to calls.
And one municipality has taken it a step further …
Saint Paul’s Landlord Alert Program gives property owners and managers the ability to receive e-mail alerts when there are police calls for certain incidents at their rentals.
Landlords will get public information about why the police were called, information on how to receive a copy of the police report, and any other resources that may be available.
It’s a program you might want to propose to your local officials.
