Financial Insitutions

The greatest threats to financial institutions are theft, attack, and disasters such as fire or severe weather. Financial institutions require a strong security presence to deter criminals from armed robbery, extortion and theft. Specific security concerns for a financial institution may include:

  • Armed robbery attempts
  • Unauthorized after-hours facilities access
  • Fires, severe storms and other natural disasters
  • Unauthorized weapons, incendiary devices and explosives
  • Ineffective or inoperable electronic security equipment
  • Alarms that fail
  • Vehicle and parking lot theft and vandalism
  • Bomb threats
