Business Watch is a free crime prevention initiative that brings together local business people, the Police Department and Citizens Assisting Police volunteers.
Businesses that register with the program will receive faxes and e-mail messages about local crime trends and potential problems. This can help merchants know what to look for and avoid being victimized while helping police spot suspects in crimes that occurred elsewhere. Police will also use the program to keep merchants informed about new laws and regulations.
