Business Watch Program

Jacksonville Police Department is pleased to sponsor Business Watch, a cooperative crime prevention program for local businesses and police. The primary goal of Business Watch is to reduce crime that affects Jacksonville businesses. The department offers crime-prevention training to Business Watch members, but that's just the beginning. Business Watch builds relationships with the police department and among the business community. Like Neighborhood Watch, these relationships:
