1. Jewelers firing a gun during a robbery can result in tragedy, including deadly retaliatory fire, or stray bullets hitting employees, customers or passers by.

2. Showcases with burglary resistant glass can withstand many blows from a hammer or tool, and often cause robbers to leave empty handed.

3. Surveillance cameras placed high and focusing down often capture only the top of the heads of criminals. Have cameras focused at eye level to obtain good photos for identification.
