Police launch Business Watch on Anglesey
September 21, 2012, 1:49 pm
This September North Wales Police launched “Business Watch” across Anglesey in order to provide businesses with relevant crime prevention advice and support to reduce the chances of becoming a victim of crime and reduce the number of business based crimes.
Local police will utilise an already well proven scheme “OWL” – an On-Line Watch link to increase the network of local businesses on the island to help prevent, reduce and detect crime and provide instant support and information about what is going on in the area.
Police Sergeant Andy McGregor said “The scheme began in early September by local PCSOs who will be visiting all local businesses to encourage them to sign up to OWL, which is a free service, and be provided with an information pack, security tips and forms to assist record details of suspicious persons. This is aimed at all businesses regardless of the size and the more that join the greater the benefit to every business and of course the local community.

Sergeant McGregor added “It may take some time for the PCSOs to get around every business but that is our goal and it will be achieved. If however any business would like to enrol now then Id encourage they make contact with me and I will arrange early enrolment.”
Sergeant McGregor can be contacted at Holyhead Police Station by phoning 101 or by email@example.com
