Crime Prevention

The Community Safety Unit (CSU) conducts proactive patrols throughout all London and Middlesex Community Housing (LMCH) communities. Community Safety Specialists assist with both urgent and non-urgent matters. These include, but are not limited to, fire alarms, medical situations, various security incidents (including Police matters), noise complaints, trespassing, vandalism, animal complaints, disputes, criminal investigations, and landlord and tenant board investigations.  In an effort to ensure the safety of everyone within LMCH communities, Community Safety Specialists are tasked with enforcing LMCH policies as well as Municipal, Provincial, and Federal laws/regulations. 

The CSU also conducts fire safety audits, Crime Prevention through Environmental Design assessments, threat risk assessments, and some Health and Safety Assessments. 

LMCH is committed to providing and maintaining housing in a safe and supportive environment to meet the needs of the people we serve in our communities.

LMCH has zero-tolerance for violence. As such, LMCH has a strict safe and respectful conduct policy, these rules and regulations are posted throughout LMCH properties. The safety and security of everyone is the CSU's number one priority
