Business Watch 

The goal of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office is to educate business owners, managers and employees of the vulnerability of the crimes that could occur in their workplace, to themselves, or to the patrons.

Business Watch is a unique program designed for businesses to establish a formal network of communication between businesses in a specific area or industry, their employees, and the Sheriff’s Office regarding crime related problems.

Business Watch provides a vehicle for crime prevention specialists to educate and guide business owners, and employees in the following areas:

  • Crime Reporting
  • Operation Identification
  • Robbery Prevention and Awareness
  • Burglary Prevention
  • Personal Safety and Self-Protection 

Simply stated, Business Watch asks everyone in businesses to be the eyes and ears of their local law enforcement agency.

For more information on this program and how to organize a Business Watch, contact the Crime Prevention Section at 863-298-6677 , during normal business hours.
