Business Watch

Business Watch is a FREE Program that creates a partnership between the business community and the Lansing Police Department to reduce and prevent crime through shared communication and training.

Business Watch shows owners and employees crime prevention techniques and strategies they can use to help cut down on business-related crime.  Training is conducted in-house for your convenience.  Training may also be conducted at City facilities if requested.

The goal of the Business Watch program is to teach businesses how NOT to become a target for crime.  If businesses do not take a proactive attitude, crime can creep in before you know it.
