Banks could do more to enhance ATM security

I was surprised, after reading of the recent robbery and brutal killing of a woman in South Boston, that no one brought up the subject of ATM security (“Kidnapped, robbed, and stabbed to death,” Page A1, July 25).

A quick online search yields pages and pages of bank-related security measures, most of which relate to protecting a bank’s money and equipment. There is very little on what the banks could do to physically protect the ATM users, other than obvious things such as cameras, phones, lighting, and visibility.
