We have seen many changes in our country over the last couple of years. In what seems to be an ever-increasing violent world, what can we do to protect ourselves? Although robbery is one of the most feared crimes for bank and credit union employees, training can often be lacking and uninspired. In this session, we will go beyond basic robbery training to put a focus on prevention and recognizing weaknesses that can leave us vulnerable. We will reveal the facts about robbery, discuss current trends, and provide step-by-step guidelines for effective prevention, safe response, and managing the aftereffects. What makes one location more favorable than another in the eyes of a robber? What can we do to deter robbers from selecting our office? We will not only cover these topics, but also basic life-saving steps employees should take to remain safe when facing a robbery. Every employee can play a role in prevention, and it is critical that all personnel are prepared and trained in the safest response methods. Attendees will learn various methods used by these crooks, how their observations of the event can be valuable, along with essential actions to take following a robbery. Employees of financial institutions must recognize the risk that exists but understand that knowledge and quality training are vital to surviving a robbery safely.
