Business Watch

Mission & Goals
The purpose of the Business Watch Program is to establish community awareness among Pasco business owners with the intent to reduce crimes against businesses. Our goal is to model our Business Watch Program after our successful Neighborhood Watch Program, with the objective being to have businesses work together in partnership with the Pasco Police Department to reduce opportunities for crime to occur.

How the Program Works
The Pasco Police Department’s crime prevention specialist, along with our area resource officers, will provide training classes for our local merchants and their employees. As part of the program we will provide business crime alerts via fax and/or email. This will give us the ability to disseminate pertinent information in cases of robberies, burglaries, and thefts.
