Through Hertfordshire’s Business Watch, local businesses work together with the police and other partner agencies to reduce crime and help to keep businesses safe. Membership is free.
Several thousand businesses and tradespeople have joined. Members receive messages, alerts, appeals and crime prevention advice from their local policing team and from police business crime specialists by email or text via the secure, award-winning OWL (Online Watch Link) scheme.
