  1. The Police are offering the following tips to business owners to prevent or minimize losses in the event of a robbery:
  2. Place a surveillance camera behind the cash register facing the front counter.
  3. Keep a low balance in the cash register.
  4. Place excess money in a safe or deposit it as soon as possible.
  5. Vary times and routes of travel for bank deposits.
  6. Don’t use marked “moneybags” that make it obvious to would-be robbers you are carrying money for deposit.
  7. Cooperate with the robber for your own safety and the safety of others. Comply with a robber’s demands. Remain calm and think clearly. Make mental notes of the robber’s physical description and other observations important to law enforcement officers.
  8. If you have a silent alarm and can reach it without being noticed, use it. Otherwise, wait until the robber leaves.
