Hollywood has glamorized and vilified bank robbers of the past or featured them in over-the-top action flicks and TV shows, but there’s a reason you mostly have to go to entertainment and history to find successful bank robbers: they’re not very common these days. Why? Modern bank security is more than a match for high-profile criminals.
Bank Security Prioritizes Deterrence
Professional criminals know that the chances of pulling off a successful bank heist are close to nil. Nowadays, the most common threats a bank’s security guard service faces are vagrants, agitated customers or staff, and petty criminals like ATM skimmers — but even then, simply having bank security is usually enough to discourage bad actors from causing trouble. And if deterrence fails, de-escalation tactics usually get the job done.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that bank security isn’t well prepared for the rare armed robbery . The best security companies employ well-trained and experienced guards. If a situation nevertheless gets out of control, disciplined security personnel will know how to appropriately reestablish order before the authorities arrive to takeover.
Around the Clock Surveillance and Rapid Response
State-of-the-art surveillance equipment allows bank security guards to monitor an entire property, enhancing the ability of patrols and posted guards. If there’s a disturbance in an unpatrolled area, a security team can be quickly dispatched to the scene.
