Produced in house, this guide was first distributed to all West End businesses in 2008. It was later updated and reprinted in 2010. The latest version was printed in 2013 and distributed in early 2014. The guide template has since been adapted by other BIZ groups in the United States and Canada for use by their business members. The guide contains information on fraud, theft, robbery and BIZ safety initiatives, providing businesses with an effective tool to reduce the potential for criminal activity.
The project was supported by the Winnipeg Police Service and sponsored in part by SI Alarms and MPI.
