Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)

Business owners, our Neighborhood Policing Coordinators offer a free security assessment of your business property.  The assessment is completed using Nationally recognized CPTED principles.  The Coordinator will inspect your business and identify vulnerable areas and provide recommendations that will enhance the security of your business.

Business Watch

Business watch establishes a communication link among area businesses, establishes a dialogue with the Police Department, and allows the sharing of information about criminal activity occurring in the community.  Meetings are held regularly between businesses and the assigned Neighborhood Policing Coordinator.

Business Watch promotes teamwork between the Palm Bay Police Department and the business community in a joint effort to reduce crime in commercial areas.

As part of the Business Watch program, Neighborhood Policing Coordinators conduct presentations where the following topics are discussed:  Robbery Prevention, Burglary Prevention, Employee Theft, Criminal Mischief, Shoplifting, and Employee Safety.
