They've already announced the next meeting which will be held for businesses that are in the district two boundary.

That meeting will be later this month, on Tuesday the 20th at the HAPO Center beginning at 1pm.

What Is The Business Watch Program?

The Program was started with a very simple help reduce crime against business through community awareness.  In order to be successful it involves a partnership between law enforcement and business owners.

The goal is for businesses to work in tandem with the Pasco Police Department to reduce opportunities for criminals to take advantage.
