Protecting Staff During a Holdup

In Detroit Michigan a man committed an armed robbery at a Dollar Store, forcing an employee to open a safe, he then zip tied both employees.  Situations like this are frightening for employees and store owners alike. Nervous and shocked employees giving the slightest reaction may possibly set off a tragedy from a jumpy gunman.

Your Covenant Security Equipment advisor will be able to offer numerous solutions providing physical safety for store employees.

For example, bullet resistant glass will deflect gunfire protecting store staff. At times even when store clerks do not resist, tragedy has the potential to follow any armed robbery. These partitions offer a wide variety of options including pass-through windows, and even transaction drawers.  Further, transaction drawers may be installed on an outside wall permitting customers to purchase merchandise without even entering your store.
