Business Crime Watch
After Hours Patrol
After business hours, police officers routinely drive by area businesses. On a random basis, an officer will physically check the business for open doors or unsecured glass windows. After checking the business, the officer will leave a notice letting the business owner know their business was checked.
Business Crime Watch Program
As a free service to Little Elm businesses, the Business Crime Watch program:
- Provides for contact telephone numbers of owners, managers, or their designees in order for police to call them for after-hour emergencies (i.e. an unlocked door, open windows, fire, burglary, etc.)
- Provides an email contact that the Community Services Division adds to a business contact distribution list. This gives the police department and the Town of Little Elm a means for rapid and uniform information sharing and alert capability on a wide scale throughout the town. This is useful for things such as an Amber alert for a missing child, a silver alert for a missing elderly person, rumor control, or even things such as emergency water rationing
- Establishes a link to the police department through the Community Services Division to exchange information between the police department and local businesses, ask questions and provide feedback on services
- Routinely provides businesses with tips for making their business more secure and their employees and customers safer
- As requested, provides information, brochures, and presentations to staff on crime prevention and other business topics related to law enforcement
The Business Crime Watch Enrollment Form is short and easy to complete. Please take advantage of this service.
