Believing that community involvement is critical to law enforcement, in 2006 the Travelers Rest Police Department launched our own “Business Watch”email program, following a format perfected by the Greenville Police Department. We send weekly emails to registered businesses (primarily those based within the city limits of Travelers Rest) that have requested to be added to an email list. Each week they receive an accurate “thumbnail sketch” of the major incidents encountered by Travelers Rest officers, in addition to periodic safety tips, and timely alerts and bulletins of in-progress or recent investigations.
Overseeing the Business Watch is Tonya Reeves, the program’s administrator. Tonya, who is also the department’s records administrator, searches through dozens of computer records and officers’ incident reports every week, looking for items that could interest program participants. Business Watch isn’t just a one-way street, however, since program participants are encouraged to contact police investigators with any information that could assist the police in solving or preventing crime in our community.
