The Business Watch Program establishes and maintains lines of communication and cooperation between businesses, the City and the Goleta Police Department in addressing crimes and security concerns related to businesses.
The Business Watch Program involves neighboring businesses working together with law enforcement in a program of mutual assistance. Participants are trained to recognize and report suspicious activities in their business neighborhoods. The program also involves the implementation of crime prevention techniques such as business security.
