In the last five years, a bank robbery occurred in the United States once every hour and a half. Over $260 million was taken in more than 29,800 bank robberies, burglaries and larcenies. Of those incidents, over 95% of the locations did NOT have off duty police officers or guards at the time of the incident.
Making Your Branch a Less Attractive Target
It makes sense to increase your bank’s protection with an off duty law enforcement presence. The challenge is to maintain high police visibility, without creating an oppressive atmosphere for your customers. However, officers with the proper disposition can be difficult to locate if you do not have the time to properly vet the officers.
AmeriCop provides off duty police officers with the temperament and experience to effectively work in your business locations. We select officers for their sensitivity to customers and employees, along with their experience working in high-traffic environments. We match an officer’s experience and their agency’s culture to the unique protection needs of banks and financial institutions. This means our officers come from agencies requiring courtesy and respect while interacting with the public. We have found these officers bring that same sensitivity to serving customers and employees in banks and financial institutions.
Increasing Customer and Employee Confidence with Off Duty Law Enforcement
After a robbery you may experience higher than normal employee turnover and reduced customer traffic as their confidence in branch security declines. AmeriCop can help you create a safer and more secure banking environment; one that contributes to more confident employees with longer tenures. In addition, it will provide that same feeling of safety to your customers.
Our off duty police officers, armed and in uniform, are a visible deterrent to criminals. Your employees and customers are more confident seeing our officers, knowing the robbers are significantly less likely to rob a branch with a police presence.
