PROTECTING YOUR BUSINESS
With large amounts of cash on hand and often small staffs working, video lottery casinos can be viewed as easy targets for burglars and robbers. We encourage you to take steps to protect your business, employees and customers. Here are some tips:
Conduct a Burglary Self-Assessment Test on your casino. Are all exterior entrances and exits well lit? Does your camera surveillance system have recording capabilities? Do you have a security alarm system that's monitored by local law enforcement or an alarm company?
Instruct your employees to make note of suspicious people in the business or vehicles that are out of place after hours.
Have your employees empty video lottery machines and the tills before leaving the casino at night.
Implement a plan for what your employees should do to protect themselves and customers if confronted by a robber. Ensure ALL employees are aware of the plan.
Burglaries and robberies are among the most difficult crimes to solve. If your casino is victimized, contact local law enforcement then submit a Video Lottery Burglary Report Form to the Lottery. Both Lottery Security and the Division of Criminal Investigation will use the information to track trends and identify weaknesses that burglars exploit for their crimes.
