Robberies

The number of bank robberies in Oklahoma has grown tremendously in the past few years. Oklahoma banks are working together to fight this battle to protect the safety of bankers and their customers.

The OBA's Robbery Task Force has put together a comprehensive plan of recommendations for banks. The plan includes recommendations to deter robberies - such as implementing a "No Hats, No Hoods, No Sunglasses" rule and completing a risk assessment program, to providing safety training to staff and supporting legislation that would require tougher penalties for bank robbers.

The OBA also has a Robbery Reward program that has helped bring numerous bank robbers to conviction.
