About Business Watch
Business Watch is a no cost crime prevention program for all Monterey Park businesses. The program was inspired by the success of our Neighborhood Watch Program, and is tailored to address the needs and interests of our business community.
- Businesses get to know each other, and work together in a program of mutual assistance to establish a business block.
- Merchants and their employees are trained to recognize and report suspicious actives on their business block.
- Participants learn and implement crime prevention strategies such as building and office security, employee personal safety, robbery awareness, and graffiti removal and reduction.
- Through this program, Business owners feel prepared and aware, instead of helpless and afraid of crime.
