Marysville, Tulalip police start Business Watch program

MARYSVILLE — A Business Watch program is being launched in Marysville and Tulalip.

Police in both communities are looking for business owners who want to organize crime prevention efforts, Marysville police Lt. Mark Thomas said.

The program is tailored for smaller businesses, but all business owners are welcome to participate, he said.

“It’s basically taking an interest in protecting yourself and reducing the possibility of being a victim of crime,” he said.

Participants will learn about crime prevention and will work together as neighbors to keep an eye out for one another, Thomas said.

Police officers will be there to help along the way. Officers also will be available to address special areas of concern such as burglaries, shoplifting, fraud and computer crimes.
