What is Business Watch?
Based on the same premises as Neighborhood Watch, Business Watch is a partnership between business owners/employees and the police department to help reduce and prevent crimes occurring in the business community.
The Business Watch Program is supported and enhanced by the Apache Junction Main Street Program, which is assisting in developing a city-wide Business Watch Alert email network. To learn more download the informational brochure and registration form.
Why should I join?
Financial crimes, robbery, shoplifting, and burglary are major concerns of the business community. By working together and sharing information with the police and neighboring businesses, many problems can be decreased, resolved, or avoided. The possibility of identifying and arresting criminals also increases as more people become involved in the process. To learn more download the informational brochure and registration form.
