What is the Mandate of Business Watch Network?
Help businesses significantly reduce crime related loss by increasingly frustrating the attempts of criminals to commit crimes against them. We live in a day of clogged court systems, increased demands upon police, which creates a bottleneck within the Criminal Justice System. Businesses must defend and protect themselves by working in an effort to deny criminals the opportunity for a second strike.
Communication with respect to criminal activity is rapid and clear, making member businesses forewarned and able to prevent being victimized.
