Landscaping can make your bank a target!

Question: 
Is it true how we landscape our facility could make it a target for robbery?
Answer: 

Yes, how you landscape your facility can make you a tempting target for a robbery. A science used by law enforcement known as Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) studies what criminals like to observe to rob your institution. Financial institutions love to landscape the property to make it look beautiful. The problem they retain a local landscaping firm that knows nothing about CPTED resulting in making their office a target. The reason, the wrong plants are selected that are so large they can shelter a criminal from public view. The plants around your entry doors should be no taller than 18 inches and not allow a person to stand or lay down behind them to hide. Our webinar will show you actual pictures of landscaping that could make your institution a target.
