Armed robbery in Australia: 2003 National Armed Robbery Monitoring Program annual report

Armed robbery Australia

Using information from the first year of the National Armed Robbery Monitoring Program, Maria Borzycki, Yuka Sakurai and Jenny Mouzos examine the nearly 9000 reported cases of armed robbery victimisation in 2003 in terms of the incident, the victim and the offender. Aspects of this crime that have not previously been closely examined, such as the type of property stolen from victims, are included. Combined with other recorded crime data a fuller picture of armed robbery in Australia emerges, which can then assist law enforcement and those responsible for the development of crime-reduction initiatives.
