2006- Housing Authority of Portland

The Housing Authority of Portland is recognized for their initiative and cooperative approach to reduce crime and the fear of crime throughout their HAP managed properties by actively partnering with ONI Crime Prevention, the Portland Police Bureau, and the Multnomah County District Attorney. HAP's effort, guided by their chief operating officer Margaret VanVliet and with the assistance of Jacob Fox, have resulted in the development of apartment watches and regular problem-solving meetings with residence managers, police, and crime prevention coordinators. The residential apartment watches linked with the authority's vigorous education of tenants about their lease responsibilities has resulted in a safer stable environment for HAP's residents and on-site staff.
