Business Watch



The Middleton Police Department, Middleton Chamber of Commerce and members of the Middleton Business Watch Partnership Board of Directors, encourage local businesses to join our organization. The Middleton Business Watch Partnership is a collaboration between the Police Department, Chamber of Commerce and businesses, designed to enhance and improve the Middleton business community.

Some of the benefits you will gain by joining: 

  • It is free! - There are no costs associated with joining the Middleton Business Watch Partnership, although we may from time to time solicit donations for supplies. Your business will receive email alerts about criminal activity which could potentially affect your business. The alerts will be tailored for your type of business or geographic location. The emails will be sent from the Middleton Police Department only and your email address will not be shared or given to anyone else.
  • Security surveys - A Middleton Police Crime Prevention Officer will conduct a security survey at your business on request. This will include building security, physical security of your employees, work place violence advice, money handling/closing advice, robbery prevention, environmental crime prevention, etc.
  • Crime prevention seminars - We will hold crime prevention seminars throughout the year on timely topics which may help protect you business as well as creating networking opportunities with area business leaders. Create two way communications between the Police Department and local businesses. We will provide crime prevention literature to all new members.

Middleton Business Watch is in the process of producing crime prevention videos instead of seminars to reach more businesses. They are also working on updating their web page.

Middleton Business Watch is accepting donations at this time to help purchase video equipment. Donations can be sent to:

Middleton Community Police Partnership Inc.
Monona Bank
3207 Parmenter Street
Middleton, WI 53562
