If you operate in a cash heavy industry then this article is for you. The large amounts of cash you keep on hand makes your store an attractive target for criminals.
In this article we’re going to discuss three ways to increase the security at your storefront and help deter would be robbers.
1. Hire armed protection
Placing an armed guard at your store will go a long way towards deterring criminals.
Consider hiring a security firm which specializes in guarding your specific industry.
Armed security will create a safe and secure atmosphere for your staff and customers. Look for a reputable firm with law enforcement or military experience.
2. You’re being watched, incorporate surveillance
Adding a surveillance system makes it more likely that the robber will be identified and apprehended which is a large deterrent. Criminals want to remain anonymous and letting them know that they’re being watched will discourage them from targeting your store.
If you operate in a highly regulated industry then make sure you select a security company familiar with the laws governing your industry.
3. Secure your cash
Robbers are interested in targeting your store since they know you’ll probably have large amounts of cash on hand.
From the moment your cashier accepts your customers cash to the time your cash is picked up by armored transport to be deposited in your bank account your cash is vulnerable and your staff is at risk.
By securely vaulting your cash in our Automated Cashier you’re ensuring that your staff does not have access to you cash. If the robbers cannot get access to your cash they’ll be inclined to look for a softer target where cash is more accessible.
