ATM Safety & Security Tips

The following crime prevention tips can help make the use of ATM’s safer for everyone.

* Walk purposefully with confidence. Give the appearance that you are totally aware of your surroundings

* Be aware of your total environment and what is going on around you. Criminals tend to avoid people who have this type of demeanor

* Follow your instincts. If you feel you are in danger, respond immediately. Remember that your personal safety is the first priority

Considerations Prior To and During Transactions

* Always watch for suspicious persons or activity around an ATM. Be aware of anyone sitting in a parked car in close proximity or at a distance from the ATM location

* If you notice anything strange, leave and return some other time. Even if you have already started a transaction, cancel it and leave.

* Maintain a small supply of deposit envelopes at home, in your car or office. Prepare all transaction paperwork prior to your arrival at the ATM site. This will minimize the amount of time spent at the ATM.

* Maintain an awareness of your surroundings throughout the entire transaction. Do not become so involved with your transaction that you are not aware of changing conditions in the area.

* Do not wear expensive jewelry or take other valuables to the ATM. This is an added incentive to an assailant.

* If you get cash – put it away immediately. Do not stand at the ATM and count it.

* Never accept offers of assistance with the ATM from strangers; ask the bank for help.

* Never lend your ATM card to anyone; treat it as if it were cash or a credit card.

* If you use a drive-up ATM, ascertain your vehicle doors and windows are locked.

* During evening hours, consider taking a companion along, park close to the ATM in a well-lighted area and lock your car. If the lights around the ATM are not working properly, do not use it.

* When leaving an ATM location, make sure you are not being followed. If you are being followed, drive immediately to a police, sheriff, fire station, crowded area, well-lighted location or open business. Flash your lights and sound your horn to bring attention to your situation.

* If you are involved in a confrontation and the attacker is armed with a weapon and demands your money or valuables, GIVE IT TO THE SUSPECT. Do not resist, property may be recovered later or replaced.

As always, please feel free to call me or email me.

Thank you, Deputy Brian Heischuber
