The Business Watch is a program designed to enhance security, increase observation, and to encourage mutual assistance and concern among Roanoke County businesses. Alerts are distributed either by e-mail or fax.
Three objectives of Business Watch are:
- Establish two way communications between businesses and the police;
- Train the business community on Crime Prevention Techniques;
- Encourage businesses to watch out for one another. Training seminars are offered to the business community.
