RCMP teach robbery prevention

Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce learn how to prevent robberies during a presentation

How do you prevent robberies?

Members of Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce got some answers to that question during a presentation by RCMP Cst. Tyson Bruns and Aux. Cst. Mike Chambers.

The presentation occurred at the Chamber’s Jan. 13 general meeting.

A well lit, clean, organized and well staffed business will help deter criminals from targeting that location, Bruns and Chambers told the Chamber members.

Other themes included concealing money deposits, keeping random times for depositing money, as well as only keeping small amounts of cash within the business.

Staff should be trained on a regular basis about robbery prevention, the two suggested.

 

The meeting itself went well and allowed for a good deal of time for question and answers with attendees.
