“Officer, we’ve been robbed!” These four words will change your life forever.
Almost every day, we learn about a store being robbed. The cost to owners and insurance companies is substantial in financial losses, not even counting the loss to business revenues that may occur from adverse publicity. More alarming is the growing trend in violence during these robberies, which in some cases has led to employees and customers being seriously injured and even killed.
Unfortunately, robberies do happen regardless of the best prevention methods. More unfortunate is that most incidents are not solved by the police. Although your goal should always be to prevent these incidents from ever happening, following three basic steps could help you better respond to an armed robbery.
