          What to Do During a Bank Robbery

          May 25, 2012

          Dr. Rosemary Erickson is a security expert who trains bank employees in what to do during a robbery. Here are her Dos and Don’ts if you find yourself at a bank during an attempted robbery:

          Do:

          • Cooperate
          • Give up the money
          • Obey the robber’s commands
          • Keep your hands in sight

          Don’t:

          • Resist
          • Talk
          • Plead
          • Stare
          • Make any sudden movements
          • Be a hero
          • Chase or follow

          Dr. Erickson says most bank robberies are over in 90 seconds and only 4 percent of robberies end up with injured victims. Of those, 82 percent are due to someone resisting. Bottom line: Don’t be a hero.
