Redlands Police Department Business Watch

What is Business Watch?
Business Watch is a crime prevention program, which enlists the active participation of Business Owners in cooperation with Law Enforcement to reduce crime in their communities.  Its purpose is to reduce crime-related financial losses to businesses and to reduce the fear of crime from both the business owner's and the customers' points of view.
As a partnership, Business Watch works by two-way communication between program members and the Redlands Police Department. Participants will receive a Free Security Assessment of their business. We will provide you with tips on how to make your business safe for customers and less appealing for criminals You will also be signed up for crime alerts allowing you to be alerted of current crime trends. By sharing information with other businesses, you will become more aware of what is happening in your area.


Getting Started


Contact the Redlands Police Department Community Oriented Policing Divisions. 

Email Officer Jennifer Ramstad  or call 909-798-7681.  Please provide the following information: Business name, name of principal contact, business street address, business e-mail address and business phone number.

What happens next?

A free security assessment will be conducted on site at your business by the Redlands Police Department. Your business will be checked for security weaknesses, and recommendations will be made on how to improve these conditions.

You will also be signed up for the Citizen Alert e-mail network which notifies program members about criminal activity. Alerts warn members about counterfeit bills, current business scams, shoplifters, area vandalism, and other topics of interest that may arise.
During the assessment you will be provided a packet with crime prevention information, business contact information, alarm regulations and other ordinances that may affect your business. 


Businesses are encouraged to notify the Redlands Police of crimes or suspicious activity at their location. Police will warn the other Business Watch members by forwarding that information over the program's network.

Important Business Watch Concepts:
Get to know the people who operate the neighboring businesses. These are your neighbors for eight or more hours a day. Making personal contact with your neighbors is the best way to get acquainted. Make an effort to introduce yourself to others in the neighborhood.  The better you know the people who work in your neighboring businesses, the more likely you -- and they -- are to look out for each other. So make personal contact and let them know you are a member of Business Watch. Talk about how you can work together to prevent crime and keep an eye on each other's business.

Watch and report. If a situation is occurring at the moment but is not an emergency or it is something that occurred while your business was closed, call 909-798-7681.
Engrave your valuable office equipment. Use your tax identification number or California driver's license number.
