Branch safety

In November 2021, another Oregon credit union was robbed. The robber was described as a white male in his mid-to-late 30s. The suspect is 5’8” to 5’9” tall, with a thin build and very short, blondish hair. He was last seen wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses, patterned gator covering and a white T-shirt.

We too have been robbed in the past by perpetrators wearing hats, sunglasses and face coverings and have learned from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that the best way to deter a robbery is to prevent it in the first place. That’s why when you visit an Oregon State Credit Union branch today, you will see signage that directs you to remove your hat and sunglasses and to lower your hood if you are wearing one. According to the FBI, more than 90% of all robberies can be prevented by compliance with this practice.

Following the FBI’s recommendations is proven to prevent robberies. Safety remains our top priority. Thank you for your cooperation in helping to maintain safety for you and for our teams.

Note: In accordance with COVID-19 protocol, we also require that you wear a mask when conducting business in a branch. Upon entry, you will be asked to lower your mask briefly for identification purposes.
