A few of the benefits to joining include:

  • Safety/Security Assessments from the SW Precinct Crime Prevention Coordinator
  • Communication network with other businesses in the area
  • Quarterly meetings with other businesses that are a part of the network
  • Window decals from the Seattle Police Department that advertises your participation in the network
  • Additional eyes on your business (nearly 24 hours a day!)

Assessments typically last about our hour and include an evaluation of your potential risk spots, suggestions for improving security, a discussion of current crime trends in the area, a packet of helpful informational handouts and of course, time for questions.

The communication network is an interactive way to effectively and quickly contact other business owners or business managers in the Junction. You’ll have a deeper piece of mind knowing there are people who are actively involved watching over your business and reporting suspicious activity to you.

The round table quarterly meetings puts you in front of the Seattle Police Department key officers. You’ll receive updates about crime in the area. You’ll have a chance to discuss what you’re observing and listen to other business owners.

Window decals will show your commitment to improving safety and will be a deterrent to potential criminals.

A camera network will be developed that will consist of a list of businesses who have active cameras.

In addition, the Junction will have Business Watch Program street signs advertising we are fully committed to a safe and crime-free business district.

Sign up now to show your commitment to a safe district and to protect and decrease crime in your business.
