Crime Prevention Series
Nationally, businesses are robbed ten times more often than individuals, they experience most nighttime burglaries than homes and they are the sole target of shoplifters.
Businesses can take an active role in reducing criminal opportunity in and around their property by participating in a variety of crime prevention initiatives.
Business Anti-Crime or Business Watch programs are designed to enhance community security through heightened awareness and open communication between police and citizens. They help reduce crimes in commercial areas, particularly shoplifting, theft, burglaries, purse snatching, drug dealing, and vandalism. These programs also help build relationships between store owners, employees, and our police department officers.
