Our goal is to provide tools and resources to help reduce business-related crime. These maps reflect crime trends in the business community. When incidents are reported to police the information is used to deploy resources strategically, identify crime hot spots, and analyze trends and patterns.
The maps are provided as a tool to promote awareness and crime reduction throughout the business communities. Check out the Business Watch website for more information (External link, opens in a new window

 Crime Prevention Tips

- Use tamper-proof, motion sensor lights around the perimeter of your business. Lighting is one of the most effective crime prevention tool when used properly.

- Empty the cash register at the end of each business day and leave it open overnight.

- Consider installing an audible alarm outside your premises. Ensure alarm signage is posted and visible.

- Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) system should be incorporated as part of an overall crime prevention strategy, and not as a substitute for crime prevention methods. If you are planning to install CCTV, consider the following:

- Report any suspicious persons or activities around vehicles or a business to the police as soon as you can. If you see a crime in progress, call 911 immediately.
