JN Bank has indicated that its branch in the Portmore Pines Plaza, St Catherine, was reopened today (February 28) for business after yesterday’s attack by gunmen on three Beryllium security personnel that left one dead and another hospitalised.
The gunmen reportedly made of with $10 million.
In a statement this afternoon, JN Bank said it remained conscious of the safety of its employees and members, and the psychological impact on those who were present during the incident.
“Therefore, we have enhanced security measures at the location, and we continue to provide professional counselling and other support to our employees and members,” the bank added.
“JN Bank is deeply saddened by the incident and has expressed condolences to the families, colleagues and friends of the member of the security team who was fatally shot, and the two others who sustained injuries during the attack.
“We are working closely with our security providers, who are assessing the services they provide. In addition, we are also reviewing security arrangements at all our locations across the country and will be making changes, as necessary, to improve the safety of employees, JN members, and the public in general, who do business at JN Bank branches, MoneyShops and ATMs.
“We encourage members of the public to protect themselves when doing banking transactions in public. We have provided safety tips in our JN Safety and Security booklet, which can be accessed on the JN Group website or by clicking here.”
