Community Alert Toronto Police Service
Business Robbery Alert

42 Division would like to advise all our subscribers, especially our Business Community that there were two similar robberies over the past weekend where the robbers waited outside the business establishment at the end of the work day for the employee carrying what appeared to be a money bag and robbed them.

Please be reminded to remain vigilant in regards to your business location. Take a look outside often and if you see anything at all suspicious such as vehicles parked nearby with or without occupants or individuals hanging out or looking out of place in the area to please call the police immediately at 416 808-2222. If a crime is in progress or about to happen call 911.

When carrying cash do not make it obvious, conceal it in a knapsack or other carrier.
If possible do several money drops during the shift so as not to have the cash with you when leaving after work. Continue to monitor your surroundings until you are safely leaving in your vehicle and leaving the location.

Please have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season.
