What is the Strathcona County Crime Watch Association - Business Watch program?
Business Watch is a Crime Prevention Program that provides local businesses the opportunity to work with the Strathcona County RCMP.
Participating businesses have access to crime alerts and an open interactive relationship between the businesses and the police, committed to improving the security and quality of living in our community. Our focus is to educate businesses in crime prevention strategies to help reduce crime.
The objective is to have as many businesses as possible aware of criminal or suspicious activity around us. The more well informed eyes and ears there are in the community, the less likely criminal activity will occur and, if it does occur the more likely it will be solved successfully.
Business Watch members information is entered into our computer database. When there is important information or criminal activity, the Liaison Officer or Website Director will send the information out to our members through the electronic fan-out system. The objective is to give each subscriber clear, concise information as soon as possible. The members are asked to contact the RCMP detachment if they see or hear anything relating to the information they have been asked to watch for.
