Business Watch is a FREE crime prevention program that is a collaborative effort between businesses and the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office to help prevent and reduce crimes in the business community. Business Watch members are trained in recognizing suspicious activities and are encouraged to call law enforcement before a problem occurs. The goal of Business Watch is to educate businesses on how to lessen their chances of becoming targets of crime. Members of Business Watch can sign up to receive email alerts and newsletters that include information on current trends and crime prevention tips. Business Watch members will also be offered a FREE Security Assessment and decals will be provided to warn potential offenders that your business will not tolerate criminal activity, and that your business has pulled together in cooperation with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office to establish a safer business community.
If you would like information on becoming a Business Watch Member or would like to apply for a Business Decal, contact Lisa Parrish at (850) 436-9735 or email her.
