Trends & issues in crime and criminal justice no. 253.

Summary

This paper discusses Australian trends in bank robbery since 1998 and the characteristics of bank robbers and robberies. It concludes that robbery in Australian banks appears to be on the decline, with decreases in victimisation since the 1980s, and that new style bank robbers tend to operate in gangs; are less likely to be armed; injure a higher proportion of victims; appear to engage in less planning; and are more likely to fail than bank robbers in the 1980s. Appropriate security measures to contend with changing robbery methods are not easily prescribed, but the paper sets out key issues to be considered in formulating security responses
