Design Out Crime
It's part of a new program called "Design Out Crime".
"Now for the first time we're actively participating in changing the environment. We're making the environment less conducive for a criminal to hang out," said Gainesville Police Sergeant Art Adkins.
Police say bushes and grass should be kept short and homes should be well-lit.
If you call, officers will come out to your home to tweak your environment to deter crime.
