Announcing Greater CWC Business Watch
The Greater CWC Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Program is proud to announce an innovative partnership with local Law Enforcement agencies of Cayce and West Columbia, which will enhance the already premier safety of the business community.
To streamline opportunities of partnership, through this program businesses will be provided proactive and preventative strategies, as well as avenues for sharing crime prevention tips and trends of criminal activities in the business community or areas they serve.
While our local police agencies are already strongly engaged in Crime Prevention programs, this initiative will offer a focus on the specific crimes that businesses could easily fall victim to.
Through an application process, the program is open to all businesses who commit to play an active role in fighting potential crimes; specifically, becoming involved in the information sharing platforms, as well as educational opportunities relating to crime prevention methods.
For more information, please contact the Chamber of Commerce: info@cwcchamber com (or) 803-794-6504.
For Emergencies, Always Call 911.
Orientation for the Greater CWC Business Watch Program is the fourth Tuesday of each month, immediately following our Chamber Business Breakfast Meeting at 9:15 am. Orientation is only approximately 30 minutes, but mandatory before a Business Watch application is approved.
If you would like to register for a Business Watch Program Orientation, please contact our Office Coordinator at 803-794-6504 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
