Are You Prepared for an Armed Robbery?
Since the days of the Wild Wild West, bank robberies have changed the culture of financial institutions. More common in the early 1900s with bandits like Bonnie & Clyde, John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson, the evolution of anti-robbery technology has cracked down on bank heists. Exploding dye packs, security cameras systems, and silent alarms have all contributed to the decline in successful bank robberies.
Over one hundred years have passed since the time of outlaws, but bank robberies are still a desperate crime avenue that continues to be attempted by individuals in today’s society.
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), each year, robbers collectively steal millions of dollars from banks, credit unions, savings and loan associations, armored car companies, and related businesses. In some cases, these criminals are armed and dangerous to employees and customers alike. Data reflects that a bank is robbed approximately every hour.
Is your company prepared for this worst case scenario?
An attempted robbery can happen at any moment, but with proper training, it can be thwarted. No matter how safe you feel inside the financial institution, managers and employees must be trained in robbery deterrence in order to be prepared to respond to any situation, no matter how difficult.
Financial institutions are prime targets for armed robbery and sensitive financial data theft due to the constant exchange of money. With M3T’s expertise in developing and implementing comprehensive safety and security solutions, you can rest assured that you are receiving the best attention and advice when it comes to safeguarding against a potential robbery, as well as other security concerns.
If you were the target of an armed robbery that was successful, you may see a loss of customers, decline in trust, and experience overwhelming media exposure. According to the Department of Justice, employees and customers who witness the robbery are considered victims and often experience emotions of fear, anger, guilt, hyper-alertness and isolation as a result of the event. After the robbery, witnesses may be called upon from the media and required to speak at a trial, which can prolong the traumatic experience.
