“I cased that bank out for about two weeks before I decided to rob it.” These chilling words were spoken by a take-over robber who almost got away with his crime. In this session, we will discuss how the robber planned his heist, why he selected the particular bank he robbed, and how he was ultimately caught.

In this webinar, you’ll learn proven prevention methods and understand the importance of training all employees on how to safely respond to a robbery. Although robbery is one of the most feared crimes for staff, training can often be lacking and uninspired. Robbery training must be dynamic and meaningful with a focus on prevention and recognizing weaknesses that leave you vulnerable. This program will reveal the facts about robberies, address current trends, and provide step-by-step guidelines for effective prevention, safe response, and managing the aftereffects. Everyone must recognize the risks that exist but understand that knowledge and quality training are vital to safely surviving a robbery.


This evergreen topic will benefit all financial institution employees.
