Business Watch

Business Watch Program 

The Business Watch Program promotes a safer community through crime prevention. Businesses and the Grapevine Police Department team up to reduce crime.

A Business Watch Program is one of the most effective and least costly ways to prevent crime and reduce fear. It can help to restore the sense of community in a commercial district.

How does it work?

Business Watch Programs are organized in communities that want to prevent criminal activities from starting. It sends a signal to the criminal element that the merchants in the neighborhood care about their community.

What programs are offered?
The Grapevine Police Department provides a variety of free programs available to the business community. Here is a listing of just some of the classes available: 

• Robbery Prevention
• Employee Safety
• Workplace Violence Training
• Burglary Prevention
• Safety for the Home Care Provider

What about Security Assessment Surveys?

The Grapevine Police Department also provides upon request free Security Assessment Surveys for businesses. These assessments provide information to you about safety concerns and provide recommendations on how to address those concerns.
