Business Watch - Crime Map – October 2017
Business Watch is a partnership between local Burnaby business communities, the City of Burnaby, and the RCMP.
Our goal is to provide tools and resources to help reduce business-related crime. These maps reflect crime trends in the business community. When incidents are reported to police the information is used to deploy resources strategically, identify crime hot spots, and analyze trends and patterns.
The maps are provided as a tool to promote awareness and crime reduction throughout the business communities. Check out the Business Watch website for more information.

Crime Prevention Tips
- Keep communication lines open with your business neighbours. Share crime prevention tips by posting them in your store. Get involved with Business Watch and encourage other local businesses to do the same.
- Leave your glove compartment and console clean and clear of valuables. Keep items such as personal electronics, tools, cash, garage door openers, and more out of your vehicle! Don’t give potential offenders an incentive or opportunity to break into your vehicle.
- Did you know that the most common crime in underground parking lots is theft or vandalism? Remind employees and patrons to wait for the gate when entering or leaving a business.
- Report any suspicious persons or activities around vehicles or a business to the police as soon as you can. If you see a crime in progress, call 911 immediately.
