    my bother was a Vice president of this bank that was rob twice, same teller, she didn't hit the silent alarm or put the tinted bag in with the money, I'll guess it raised a red flag with the FBI because they figured out that she has been in another bank with the same situation, it turn out she was in with the robber, they are both doing time at a Federal prison, soon after the last job.

    That is what I thought, stop trying to use others words against them to make YOUR point, it makes you look like a Democrat!
    It wasnít what I said and you know it.
    You said ď No, Iíd rather them pay more attention to giving me the correct amount of money than have to take the time to decide at what direction to shoot at the BG.Ē I never suggested forcing anyone to carry. Only saying they should be able to if they desire.

    If you work for me I get to set the conditions of employment. If you don't like my conditions of employment go get another job.

    Thatís true, and I respect that you as the business/property owner have the right to make that decision. That doesnít mean I agree with that decision.

    The point the money wasn't covered was when the bank customer left the bank and was walking to their vehicle. That's the only place I see armed guards these days.
    FDIC insurance is strictly for the benefit of depositors in the event of a bank failure. The FDIC is also a bank regulator, along with the OCC and state regulatory agencies. In that regulatory role, they may investigate anything that may compromise the financial health of a bank, including risk assessment, which includes robberies. In that capacity the FDIC may have had an interest in an armed robbery investigation. Since FDIC insurance exists for the benefit of depositors, banks pay FDIC insurance premiums essentially based on deposit levels (a little more complicated than that, but thatís the main component).

    By the way, I was a Regional CFO for a Fortune 500 bank for many years, and was also a Senior VP and CFO for a mid size community bank prior to that, so this is a subject matter I am familiar with.

    I wouldn't have a problem with it, but, I doubt any bank outside of a very small town bank is going to allow it. Several of the banks around here have either converted over to a remote lockable entrance or a "remote" teller using those air capsules, or both.

    Nope

    If banks want to discourage robberies, they have other options with less downside. And it seems that most elect to pass on those, as well. They've done the math and figured that the fees they love to charge us more than make up for their losses.

    Remind me, who are the bad guys?

    You obviously know a lot more than me on this subject and I stand corrected on several points. You sir are an expert.

    Two options:
    Bank teller, cashier, pizza delivery, ...
    - Should be allowed to carry because compliance with robber doesn't equal not being hurt/killed anyway.
    - Should not be allowed to carry because financial risk to company is more important than individual employee safety.

    Surely nobody on this forum thinks option #2 the most reasonable.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    I was once a young bank teller. I know I wanted an opportunity to keep a gun. I was aware that option No. 2 was a possibility.
