Most robberies are easy to do because the security guard does not care if the artwork, money, or anything thing else is stolen because it is not his. Some security guards do take their job seriously and try their best to keep the valuables safe. But they do not have the training to do so. Why is security at major events or places so lax?
The security cameras in some major events do not even work! Why are the cameras not working, because most security guards that are no well trained could care less. “Seven out of 43 security cameras were not functioning.” (A bad night at the museum, Toronto Star) Also why is the surveillance of the major places not well covered? That is why at airports the security there has become so intense that they use scanners that see straight through your clothes. At a museum there should also be those types of security measures not that intense but they should always be working 24/7. “Each painting in the museum has an alarm. Not a single alarm for any painting is working.” (A bad night at museum, Toronto Star) “A glance told the tale: a dark night, a ladder, and a shattered window.” (Dolnick7) Even if major places have great security even they can be thrown off by a simple trick that they should not fall for. “When Willy Banks the casino owner wants a new golden phone for himself. The boys make him one that has a magnetron in it, which will shut down his security system including the surveillance. Also trapping him inside of the basement room until the shutdown completes.” (Soderbegh2007)
The pay of some security guards may also affect how well they do their job. If they were paid a healthy amount then they would take their job more seriously because they would not want to lose the great pay. “An alarm sounded. In his bunker, the guard cursed the false alarm.”...
