NBA Robbery Reward Program
The NBA manages a statewide robbery reward program designed to solicit information that leads to the apprehension of any person believed to be responsible for the robbery of an FDIC-insured commercial bank or savings institution located in Nebraska. All rewards to informants are paid through Crime Stoppers or the FBI. No rewards shall be paid directly from the NBA to an informant.
Thumbprint Signature Program
The NBA offers the Thumbprint Signature Program to provide a simple, effective, and inexpensive method for preventing and deterring check fraud. Individuals wanting to cash a check are asked to place an impression of their thumbprint on the face of the check using a small inkless touch pad that leaves no stain or residue on users or clothing.
Thumbprint Signature products include:
Concealed Handgun Signs
