Bank robberies would go down to nil if banks adopted what some credit unions have done. Isolate tellers in a secure area and have them talk to customers via monitor. Aloha Pacific FCU does this and I think it's great. There might be a learning curve for older patrons and banks might feel a need for face-to-face meetings but to stave off robberies, transactions not involving cash can be done face-to-face. Thieves would unlikely rob someplace where it would be impossible to get cash and the tellers would feel a whole lot safer.
