Convenience Store Training – South Central Patrol


The Dallas Police Department Robbery Prevention Training Program is designed to teach store owners, operators, and employee's robbery prevention techniques such as maintaining and utilizing a surveillance system, maintaining a clear line of site through windows, the use of a drop safe and cash handling procedures, as well as other crime prevention methods through environmental design.  In addition to robbery prevention, this training also includes HOW to respond in the event that there is a robbery and what to expect as the officers arrive.

Each owner, operator and employee of a Convenience Store within the City of Dallas is required to complete Robbery Prevention Training once every 12 months per Ordinance 12B and it is the store owner/operator's responsibility to ensure each representative attends.
