The Athena Research Corporation asked juvenile robbers what would be most important if they were to rob a convenience store.
Escape route and amount of money ranked first and second.
Eliminating a convenient escape route may involve closing off certain entrances late at night, or properly fencing the perimeter.
Reducing the amount of cash that robbers can easily obtain during an armed robbery limits your risk. Decrease the amount of cash you have on hand by consistently skimming your tills into a time-controlled drop safe. The Athena Research Corporation says that the use of these safes helps to reduce robberies. Additionally, it will help lower losses if one does occur and all the criminals get are in your tills.
