Community Banks’ Security Forum

security bank 300HENDERSON, KY (10/29/12) — As a means to establish better security practices at all local banks, members of Henderson’s financial institutions met with law enforcement officials on Thursday evening, September 13, 2012 at the Henderson Police Department offices.
 
Those organizations represented at the forum were: Ohio Valley Financial Group, Independence Bank, The Bank of Henderson, Old National Bank, US Bank, Green River Area Federal Credit Union, Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union, the Henderson Police Department, Henderson County Sheriff, Markham Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
 
The purpose of the forum was to exchange information and ideas about procedures and processes that could provide deterrence to future bank robberies and increase the likelihood that robbery assailants will be apprehended. Both law enforcement personnel and bank officials offered a number of security-related ideas that could be adopted by all institutions.
 
“One initiative that was widely accepted by the entire group was the development of a ‘one-call’ type system, which could serve to put all institutions on alert whenever a bank robbery occurs, or whenever suspicious activity warrants the rapid communication of this information,” said Lt. Chip Stauffer of the Henderson Police Department. After the Thursday evening meeting, the forum attendees agreed to convene a follow-up meeting to review progress on ideas which were developed at this forum.
 
For more information contact Lt. Chip Stauffer at the Henderson Police Department at 270-831- 1295.
