MDHA Security

MDHA neighborhoods operate like most other neighborhoods in the Nashville area and are patrolled by Metro's Police Department.

MDHA's Security Office works with a variety of law enforcement agencies such as the Metro Police Department, FBI, TBI, Office of the Inspector General, District Attorney, Public Defender, etc. on all security issues and funds a dedicated task force of Metro Police Officers that meet with MDHA staff regularly.

MDHA's Security Office also works to assist in identifying and aiding the arrest of criminals and provides free space for Metro Police at Levy Place.

Residents also have access to a silent (anonymous) criminal complaint mechanism to report suspected criminal activity.

MDHA conducts background checks on all adult household members before a lease is signed or renewed and maintains a "No Trespass" list of individuals not allowed on public housing property that is shared with Metro Police.

All residents are provided an MDHA Security manual when they move-in to any MDHA owned property. If you're having problems in your community, you can report them anonymously by calling MDHA's Security Office at 252-8406, 252-8466 or 252-8467. All Calls are confidential. For emergency situations, always call 911.
