 Citizens are reminded to cooperate with suspects should they find themselves the victim of a robbery. Try to get the best description possible and call 9-1-1 immediately. Always be aware of persons and/or vehicles and never hesitate to call police if you are suspicious of any activity. For more Crime Prevention tips please scroll down.


Crime Prevention Tips – Robbery

*Stay alert and know who is in your business and where they are. Watch for customers who hang around the store without buying anything. Be aware of suspicious activity outside of your store. If in doubt call police!
Make it a habit of greeting customers when they enter your business, ask them if you can assist them. A potential robber does not want attention drawn to them.
* Keep your store well-lit inside and out, and windows unobstructed.
* Keep small amounts of cash in the till. Avoid receiving large bills from customers, making it a point to say you don’t keep large amounts of cash on hand.
* Install a panic or robbery alarm, and if your store is equipped with video surveillance ensure that at each start of the day the video equipment is operating properly.
* If you are being robbed, do not panic, take deep breaths. Your personal safety is much more important than any merchandise or money.
* Listen closely to what the robber is saying do not resist, do not make any sudden moves, and do not follow the robber out of the store. Call 911 immediately.

How can I assist with the Police Investigation?

*Call 911 immediately! Stay Alert.
*Lock your doors, make any observation if the robber fled on foot or jumped into an awaiting car.
*Do not touch anything; do not clean up anything if a mess was made during the robbery.
* Try and remember the description of the robber, the height, the weight, and any distinguishing characteristics such as tattoos, piercing, scars, and accents.
* Try to remember the exact words spoken by the robber.
* If a weapon is used you will be asked later to describe the weapon.
