Protect Your Business

Is your business vulnerable to vandalism or theft? Installing security cameras can divert potential criminals and protect your business. Our Safe and Secure Neighborhood Program strives to provide local businesses with security cameras for a reduced cost. Several businesses along Motor Avenue have already taken advantage of this opportunity and installed security cameras using our program. Our partner, CCTV Net Installer, can protect your business with a variety of products and options at a reduced cost.
