No hats hoods policy considered in Iowa
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, and ST. LOUIS (2/12/09)--An Iowa town is considering adopting a "No Hats, No Hoods, No Sunglasses" policy to thwart robberies, and Missouri's policy received attention on Iowa TV, reports the Missouri Credit Union Association. Credit unions and banks with the policy ask members/customers to remove hats, hoods and sunglasses--a typical disguise for robbers--before entering the financial institution (The Missouri difference Feb. 11). KCRG-TV, the ABC affiliate in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, featured a news story about the policy in a Feb. 3 broadcast. A reporter traveled to Columbia, Mo., to talk with credit unions and banks that participate in the Missouri program. United CU, Mexico, Mo., was featured in the story. "It's not going to be a cure-all, and it's not something that's going to keep somebody from coming in," said the Betty Clark, president of the credit union. "It's just a deterrent like any other security measure is." At least nine states participate in a "no hats, no hoods" program.
