The Neighborhood Watch Program strengthens neighborhoods by bringing people together to create a shared vision of community safety. This program teaches community members to:
In a business district or a large office building where other topics such as shoplifting and robbery prevention, dealing with challenging people, workplace violence prevention, and money handling security may be a concern, a Business Watch may be useful.
