The Bankers Association of Trinidad and Tobago (BATT) acknowledges with great concern the increased risk being faced by clients before and after they visit our branches and ATMS. The increase in criminal activity is of as much concern to BATT as it is for our valued clients.
In an effort to combat the uptick in these criminal activities, BATT has strengthened its coordination effort among all banks; broadened the interaction with the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service; and is finalizing a partnership with Crime Stoppers Trinidad and Tobago Ltd with a view to mitigating and or managing incidents of this nature collectively and expeditiously.
We would like to assure our clients that their safety remains a primary concern of BATT and while we encourage clients to make greater use of our non-cash service options, we are committed to doing what we can to provide a safe environment for clients who choose to avail of our cash services. We remind clients to remain alert, pay close attention to their immediate environs when approaching and leaving bank premises and notify the bank and police right away if any suspicious activity or individuals are noticed.
