Why do robbers choose one location over another?

How can robbers be deterred?  What life-saving steps should employees take when facing a robbery?  All financial institution employees must recognize the risk that exists, and understand that knowledge and quality training are vital to survival.
  • Use situational awareness to become safer
  • Recognize vulnerabilities within your habits and environment
  • Distinguish different robbery methods
  • Realize the importance of safe opening procedures
  • Know what steps to take during a robbery
  • Understand which actions to avoid during a robbery
  • Identify habits that endanger
  • Reduce risk


There have been many changes in our country over the last couple of years.  In what seems to be an increasingly violent world, how can we protect ourselves?  Despite robbery being one of the most feared crimes for the banking industry, training is often lacking and uninspired.  This session will go beyond basic robbery training to focus on prevention and recognizing weaknesses that can cause vulnerability.  It will reveal the facts about robbery, address current trends, and provide step-by-step guidelines for effective prevention, safe response, and managing the aftereffects. 

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 crooks, how their observations of the event can be valuable, and essential actions to take following a robbery. 


This must-attend webinar will benefit all financial institution employees.
