How to Reduce the Chances of Burglaries Using Depository Safes

lockerA lot of people still use cash when shopping in retail outlets. With an amount of available on the premises, it could be a big temptation for burglars to resist. Burglars and thieves are interested in cash as they can easily be used or dispensed without fear of being traced. It is wise for store owners to make sure that the money the collect in their stores are safe from these bad elements.

On top of the list of security measures for establishments with cash in their premises is using depository safes. Depository safes, or drop safes, are distinct from regular safes in that they have slots to insert or drop money into them, keeping them safe inside until an authorized person opens the lock.These safes are especially useful in retail stores or convenience stores where there are large amounts of cash.

There are types light enough to be attached below a counter, but strong enough not to be easily destroyed or tampered with. Just bear in mind that depository safes are intended to keep cash temporarily. This means that they are used during day time operations only. Cash stored in them should be transferred or deposited to the bank immediately at the end of the day.

Here are some more tips on how to protect your store from burglaries:

1. Have your employees smile and greet all persons that enter your establishment. This way, they will become conscious of everyone. Plus, it’s also good customer service that will make your patrons feel more at home. Studies show that robbers usually target store workers that don’t pay attention to the people coming into the store.

2. Reduce accessibility to large amounts of cash inside the premises. Have a set amount of money stored in the cash register and make all your workers aware of it. If possible, do not accept large bills as payment.

3. Instruct your staff to immediately deposit the cash in the register to the drop safe once a set amount is reached. Some safes are featured with the facility to supply loose cash or change in timed intervals. Choose depository safes that are fitted with time delay locks. Robbers would want to get in and out as quickly as possible. They will never wait too long to get their stash.

4. Use appropriate markings or signs that let potential burglars know about your store’s security programs. Put up signs such as “Time Lock Safe, Staff Cannot Open,” “Surveillance Cameras Present,” “We Keep Minimum Cash at All Times.” You can be creative.

5. Hire professional trainers to teach your staff on what to do in case a burglary happens. Make use of role playing to give them enough confidence.

6. Establish the quantity of cash collection points to a bare minimum. If possible, fuse them all together in one place and have extra tight security in that area.

7. Have your cash collection point in the area of your store where there is a high presence of authorized people. The more witnesses are there, the lesser is the chance of a burglary.

8. Consider installing video surveillance cameras for best protection and make them obvious. If doable, flash the cameras output on a monitor large enough for the customers to recognize themselves inside the store. This could make potential robbers think twice before they execute their plan.

Depository safes can help you a lot when it comes to preventing potential robberies in your store. But, this is just one security measure. It is important to train your employees to be alert all the time and to handle these situations properly so that loss is minimized and no one gets hurt.
