1. Do not resist in a gunpoint robbery. Attempting to go up against a robber with a gun risks not only your own life, but the lives of your staff, customers and innocent passersby.

2. Do not chase after robbers which also risks injury or death.

3. Lock the doors and call police immediately after robbers have left. Do not clean up or disturb the crime scene.
