Crime Prevention for Businesses

Crime Prevention is a critical part of policing, and there are many things that businesses can do to help prevent crime within their establishment.

In Case of Robbery

  • If you are the victim of a robbery, do not fight back.
  • Co-operate and do as instructed.
  • Be the best witness possible by remembering what the suspect looked like and what the suspect was wearing.
  • Try to determine if the suspect leaves on foot or by vehicle.
  • If the suspect leaves in a vehicle take note of the licence plate number, the make, model and colour of the car.
  • Call 9-1-1 immediately.
