At the most recent Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) National Armed Robbery Forum, stakeholders spoke about the need to understand why their particular store was targeted and how to protect staff and businesses.
The ANF is working with the AIC on issues affecting the newsagency channel and aims to identify the characteristics of a business that make it vulnerable to armed robbery.
