Security call for bosses.
Under the initiative, business watch groups would operate like neighbourhood watch schemes, with families keeping an eye out for anything suspicious in their areas.
A business task force will run a drop-in security advice clinic at the Bridge Club, Whitebridge Industrial Estate in Stone, near Stafford, tomorrow from 10am-12.30pm.
Police and fire officers will offer advice on protecting business premises against crimes, including arson and burglary.
Business watch encourages firms to look out for each other and report any suspicious activities by strangers.
"We hope that the drop-in will encourage businesses to work together to tackle crime," said task force chairman Simon Crofts. Latest CCTV security systems will be demonstrated at the event
