On Friday, 08-28-09, Lets Talk Home Security host Cheryl Watterson talked about home protection strategies for bank executives, middle management, bank managers, executive managers, and their employees.

With bank robberies on the rise - there has also been a tremendous  increase in the number of home invasion robberies.  The two crimes sort of go together - criminals — robberies — money.

Criminals are getting smarter and some are very professional.  In fact over the past 8-10 years there have been many incidents of home invasion robberies of bank executives where family members were kidnapped and/or held hostage while the bank employee was driven to the bank and  forced to withdraw money.

What executive holds the keys to the bank branch?  Is it the branch or assistant manager?  Very likely a professional criminal could go to the home of one of the local managers and perform the exact crime and catch the bank employee totally off-guard.  People don’t think that a home invasion robbery crime is going to happen to them - it’s always someone else who is the victim! Most banks are set up with security systems that record opening and closing schedules that would alert the alarm monitoring center.

The safety and security of bank employees should be a high priority.  Especially with our economy in such a slump - desperate people do desperate things!

Employee training that includes personal safety awareness while at work, in the bank, and outside of the bank should be ongoing.  Employees should also have the opportunity to learn the best home security strategies to keep both their home and family safe while at work or at home.

By being proactive and knowing how to protect your home and keep your family safe you can avoid becoming a victim of a home burglary or home invasion robbery crime.  The consequences can be very devastating!

Larger banks with multiple branches throughout a city or state should offer  their employees and even their customers a training program that includes home security protection strategies and personal safety awareness.  That would be a company that offers value-added benefits to employees and customer.

Take care and protect your home and family.

    Interesting post. I agree, employers need to give attention to education and training of employees regarding safety and security when they’re at the office, in transit or at home.
