Crime Prevention Public Service Announcement - Lock Your Vehicle

Business Watch


An important step in preventing crime or disorder problems that affect your business is to become informed about the kinds, frequencies, and locations of events that occur. As businesses are busy it remains difficult to meet face to face. Business Watch has taken on a new face and become more electronically based using email as it's primary form of communication. The Bedford Police Department has created the Business Watch Email Alert database to inform you of noteworthy events occurring within the town, such as:
  • Lookouts for suspicious persons, vehicles, or activities.
  • Patterns of activity, as in burglary or larceny incidents
  • Reports of counterfeit bills circulating in Bedford Town
Sign up your company for Business Watch by by emailing us.
