Effectiveness of security guards

Answered by: 

Are security guards a deterrent?

They can be. The prolific serial robber I interviewed would not target a bank with a security officer, while the take-over robber I spoke with was not deterred by the guard at the location he robbed. Security officers should be visible and vary their routine in order to be a deterrent.
