SHOUT OUT: Holdups are just one situation police from Hillsdale and River Vale will discuss with interested bank employees and law enforcement officers from area towns during a special “Safe Banks, Safe Businesses” presentation next week.

“Human nature can often prevent us from thinking clearly during stressful moments,” Hilldale Chief Chip Staler and River Vale Chief Michael McCann said in a joint release. ” The best way to combat panic and emphasize positive concepts for dealing with emergencies is to formulate responses for these incidents ahead of time.”

WHAT: Safe Banks, Safe Businesses
WHEN: 6:30 p.m. Wed., June 5
WHERE: River Vale Country Club, 660 Rivervale Road, River Vale

Police will discuss “a variety of critical scenarios, from medical emergencies to robberies, based upon the industry’s best practices and latest standards,” the chiefs said.

There will be a “vivid” PowerPoint Presentation and open discussion about many of those situations, including:

  • fraud/identity scams;
  • bad checks;
  • false panic alarms;
  • false burglar or robbery alarms;
  • medical emergencies;
  • actual bank robberies.

“Given the fluctuating turnover rate of staff in the industry, a periodic review of critical scenarios  is imperative, reinforcing the proper handling of these circumstances by new employees, as well as seasoned employees,” the release says.

“This program hopes to combat complacency and proffer sound, reasonable responses to a whole host of fluid situations.”
