Dillinger changed how Diebold protected vaults
NORTH CANTON, Ohio (6/30/09)--ATM manufacturer Diebold says real-life gangster John Dillinger, the subject of a new film, “Public Enemies,” changed the way the company protected financial institutions’ vaults. “Public Enemies,” starring Johnny Depp as Dillinger, is set to be released Wednesday. Dillinger led the Dillinger Gang in the early 1930s and was the first man labeled by federal law enforcement as “Public Enemy No. 1.” During his 13-month career as a gangster, his group killed 10 men, wounded seven others, robbed numerous banks, raided police arsenals and staged three jailbreaks. Because many of Diebold’s clients were worried about their financial security with Dillinger on the loose, Diebold partnered with Lake Erie Chemical Company in the early 1930s to create a teargas system that could be triggered during a robbery. Teargas canisters were placed in the buildings so that the gas would envelop the institution’s lobbies. Diebold reported brisk sales of the system throughout five states in the Midwest, where Dillinger and his gang had been involved in heists. Diebold, a CUNA Strategic Service provider, is headquartered in Canton, Ohio. The company celebrates its 150th anniversary this year.
