Business Watch

Secure Your Business Against Crime

Remember, crimes against business are usually crimes of opportunity. If you make it easy for someone to steal from you, chances are someone will. Make crime against your business risky and unrewarding. Start a business watch program. The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office would rather work with you to prevent crimes than to spend time apprehending the criminals!

To Form a Business Watch in Your Area

  • Call a meeting with nearby merchants/businesses.
  • Email Sergeant Lisa King and ask her to discuss Business Watch and crime prevention techniques with your group.
  • Decide on the next meeting; make this an ongoing prevention program.
  • Invite speakers to regularly scheduled meetings for crime prevention tips and planning group strategies. Internal or employee crime should be one of the first topics for discussion.
