The keys to an effective crime-prevention program are education and preparation.
The purpose of the Business Alert Network is to:
Increase awareness and cooperation between merchants.
Provide merchants and their employees with information on Crime Prevention techniques.
Create a Crime Prevention-oriented business community.
Improve the lines of communication between the merchants and the police department.
