Union Gap Police: It's our time for crime-free housing
UNION GAP, Wash. -- Police say it's time for the city to start its own crime-free housing program.

Police would sign up landlords to prevent bad tenants from moving into Union Gap.

Cities like Yakima and Sunnyside have had the program in place for years.

Police say it's Union Gap's turn.

"If we don't have a program we do have the potential that some undesirable criminal activity will show up at some of our rental properties here," Sergeant Greg Cobb said.

Cobb presented the idea to city council Monday night. City officials seemed receptive to the idea.
