The Georgia Association of Bank Security (GABS) was formed in 1980 by Bank Security Directors from the Major Atlanta Financial Institutions, after discussions with each other found that they each had similar criminal activity that was affecting each others companies. They decided that one of the best ways they could help solve their own crimes was to help each other as a united group. They started sharing information about Bank Robbery Suspects and other financial crimes with not only each other but also the FBI, and Local & State Law Enforcement. They found out that not only was this group successful in solving crimes together, they could also be a unified force in making changes in security training, and driving new development for security equipment.
