Sign Up for RCPD Business Watch
RCPD has launched Business Watch, a crime prevention program designed for businesses in the City of Rancho Cordova. The goal of the program is to bring neighboring businesses together in partnership with RCPD to continue preventing and reducing crime.
Three Business Watch groups are currently active in our community in the areas of Ramos Circle, Investment Circle, and Folsom-Olson-Zinfandel. The program has helped create a safe, secure environment for business employees and customers, allowed neighboring businesses to get to know each other, and taught businesses how to prevent and reduce crime on their business property and in their area.
“Business Watch is modeled after Neighborhood Watch but focused on supporting our business community,” said Crime Prevention Specialist Tina Aldama. “We created the program as one way to partner with businesses to help their businesses continue to thrive and ensure our community continues to be a safe place to do business, shop and dine.”
To start a Business Watch group, the first step is to invite your neighboring businesses to a meeting on Business Watch and crime prevention techniques. RCPD can partner with you by providing resources to help you and your group learn more about crime prevention!
