Business Owner Tips

Tips for Businesses
  • Keep cash to a minimum with frequent, irregular deposits or a "drop safe." Use visible stickers or signs to advertise your cash control policy. 
  • Install visible closed circuit television cameras near cash registers. 
  • Keep your establishment well lit at night. Clear any obstructions that prevent someone on the street from seeing what is happening inside the store. 
  • Designate a small bundle of cash "bait money." Record the serial numbers of these bills and make sure you give this cash to robbers. 
  • During a robbery, remember that a robber is a bundle of nerves and, therefore, is very dangerous. Instruct your employees to obey a robber’s instructions calmly and politely. 
  • Have employees memorize a signal or "code" to alert each other to potential or actual robbers. 
  • If robbed, try to memorize as much as possible about the robber’s description as in height, weight, hair color, eye color and race.
  • If a vehicle is used as a means of escape, provide a brief description of the vehicle, license plate information and the direction of travel. 
  • After the robber has fled the scene and it is safe to do so, dial 911and report the incident immediately.  While waiting for the Police/Authorities to arrive, remember Do Not touch anything at the scene.
