Bank Robberies Happen More Often Than You Think… Is Your Money Safe?

Bank Robberies Happen More Often Than You Think… Is Your Money Safe?

There are several action movies each year whose main premise is bank robbery, and in each movie, the first thing the bad guys do is take out the security cameras. While movies almost always stray from real life, it’s safe to say that not that long ago, security surveillance systems were underwhelming in their capabilities compared to today’s technology, and that if someone could get past a bank’s security guards, it wouldn’t be difficult to take out the security system and ensure that no one ever saw their face.
