Business Watch

Join Business Watch

In our commitment to bolstering partnerships with the City and business community, Yorba Linda Police Services would like to present Business Watch—a free crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of business owners in cooperation with law enforcement as we aim to prevent crime. Modeled after the nationwide Neighborhood Watch program, Business Watch encourages neighboring businesses to form a community that looks out for each other, communicates important information, and reports suspicious activity and crime. Such cooperative efforts make for a successful crime-fighting team and offer mutual aid assistance in times of disaster. This significantly impacts law enforcement’s ability to maintain safer business establishments and commercial complexes while working in cooperation with businesses. 

How To Sign Up

Please complete the Business Watch Enrollment Form (PDF). A representative from Yorba Linda Police Services will come by your business and attach a Business Watch sticker to your storefront window. In the event a crime occurs at your business, deputies will be able to retrieve your emergency contact information and contact you immediately regarding the incident.

Getting everyone involved contributes to a comprehensive approach to safety for each individual business as well as the entire business community. The Crime Prevention Unit is here to help and will provide business owners with periodic emails regarding recent crime trends as well as crime prevention tips.

Remember, crimes against businesses are usually crimes of opportunity. The Orange County Sheriff's Department is here to protect and support you in your business needs. For program inquiries during business hours, please contact Yorba Linda Crime Prevention at 714-779-7098. 

To report suspicious activities, people, and/or vehicles, contact Yorba Linda Police Services' 24-hour Non-Emergency number at 714-647-7000 and select the option for Sheriff’s Dispatch. For an emergency or crime in progress, do not hesitate to dial 9-1-1.
