Facility Armed Robbery Safety Guidelines The handling of cash in park and recreation facilities is a very common occurrence. Security measures can greatly assist in reducing the likelihood of a robbery, but such measures can never fully prevent an incident from occurring. The education and awareness of staff is a critical element in both preventing an armed robbery and minimizing the potential injury to both staff and patrons. The following practices and procedures can assist towards proactively addressing a potential armed robbery scenario: Pre-Event Security Procedures: Plan and discuss money control procedures before the event. ® Who is to handle the money? ® ® Where is the money kept? ®

Where will the money be deposited into a park district safe? Who is accountable for the deposit?

Count money out of public view and in a secure room. Money drops should be conducted frequently to assure large cash amounts do not accumulate in registers/cash boxes. When opening/closing facilities, check your surroundings for suspicious persons or vehicles. After/before hours, doors should be kept locked. In evenings, exits should be minimized to control access to main entrances. Establish procedures in the event of a robbery attempt. Employees should never resist. They should turnover any monies or other valuables. Conduct training for all staff. During an Armed Robbery: During an armed robbery, the goal is to first prevent physical harm to staff/patrons. observations can assist police with apprehension.

Along with this,

If your facility is held-up: • Stay calm, and make mental observations regarding physical description, voice, vehicle description, clothing, etc. • Obey the robber’s commands. Do not do any more or less. • Use alarms only if it can be done without raising attention. • Give the robber the money or merchandise he asks for. •

Life is much more important than property.



Do not try and be a hero.



Your actions can make the difference between an unfortunate robbery or a robbery gone bad resulting in a murder.

Aftermath: • Immediately contact police. Inform them of your observations and what happened. • Secure the area for police. Do not touch potential evidence. Do not let anyone else in or allow others to leave. Witness statements will be necessary. • Write out your observations and description immediately. Rough notes will help you remember details. • Do not discuss details with anyone but the police. Specific details known only by robbers can be incriminating evidence at an interrogation. • Never chase robbers. Leave pursuit to the proper authorities.
