The Roswell Police Department recognized Roswell Creek apartments with the Gold Partnership Award on Aug. 2 for top participation in the department’s crime-free housing program.

Roswell Creek, at 1000 Holcomb Bridge Road, is the third largest complex in Roswell with 508 units and was the first apartment community to join the police program in 2009. Since that time, the number of police calls to their location has been reduced in half.

Manager Karina Campos, who has been with the property since the program has been in effect, followed the crime-free housing curriculum thoroughly and has evicted anyone involved in criminal activity to make her residents safe.

She credits the success of the program to the close relationship she has with the police department.

In order to be more proactive, Campos hired four off-duty police officers to work security for her community.

The officers work random hours to ensure criminals do not know when an officer will be there.

The owner of the complex, Audubon Properties, has improved the overall appearance of the grounds and buildings and plans to continue the improvement process.
