The purpose of the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office Business Watch is to encourage the exchange of information and crime prevention techniques between the law enforcement community and local businesses.
Business Watch is a partnership between the business community, local authorities and the Sheriff’s Office. It enables businesses to take an active part in preventing and reducing crime through sharing information, raising awareness, and improving communications.
The mission of the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office Business Watch is to help promote a safe environment for people to live, work, shop and play.
This is a new program offered by the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff’s Office Foundation to our local businesses. This program is similar to the Neighborhood Watch program. Business Watch asks everyone in business areas to be the eyes and ears for each other and law enforcement.
Business Watch establishes a formal communication network among businesses in a specified industry. Members in each industry are alerted to potential crime and current trends. Members are encouraged to form a “Community” that watches out for one another.
