CLEAR ZONE Robbery Prevention Program (included in the Robbery Prevention & Survival Kit)

Research based evidence shows a causal connection between environmental influences and robberies. Removing window signage and placing the cash handling in a clear view of the outside has been shown to deter robberies.

The CLEAR ZONE robbery prevention program works by identifying a prominent window that strategically overlooks the cash handling area. It then highlights and defines that window through the application of the Clear Zone decal to draw in witness potential and act a reminder to store owners to keep the window free of signage and the area free of clutter. 

The CLEAR ZONE decal can be ordered as part of the Robbery Prevention Kit which is available free of charge. The kit contains a number of resources and decals which will help to discourage and/or deal with a robbery in the event that one occurs.

To sign up for the CLEAR ZONE robbery prevention program and request a kit for your business, simply fill out and submit the following form:
