Don’t Be Cheap And Do Away With Security Guards
That’s my advice to banks in Singapore.
Because according to this The Star Online article, there was no security guard present at the Standard Chartered bank that got robbed by the mysterious Australian robber on Thursday, the 7th of July.
And apparently, the mysterious Australian robber wasn’t even armed.
Which means, if there had been an armed Certis Cisco officer present, this robbery could have been prevented.
And it isn’t just me saying so. Here’s a quote from a bank customer.
“If there was a security guard present yesterday it would’ve made a difference,” said another bank customer Mr Willy Lau, 43, who is self employed.
Well, at least the bank learned its lesson. When it opened for business on Friday, an armed Certis Cisco officer could be seen guarding the entrance.
