PROTECTING THE CAGE

Although there is not a specific study that identifies casino-related robberies throughout North.

News reports indicate that incidents involving some form of robbery on a gaming property are becoming more frequent,

or are being reported at a higher frequency in the news.

The U.S. Department of Justice does not specifically track casino-related robberies, but the Uniform Crime Reports (UCR),

produced annually, track all types of robberies.

UCR reporting demonstrates that robberies overall have been on an uptick over the last several years in the U.S. Measured in metrics of per 100,000 residents,

The robbery rate went up slightly on average—1.6 per 100,000 residents in the three years between 2014 and 2016.

This equates to 4,000-5,000 more robberies annually in the U.S. in the last three years.

Overall, robbery has decreased from its peak in the 1990s and appears on an incremental trending increase over the last few years,

Yet still has significantly decreased overall in the since the 1990s, when it was more than double the current levels based on population.

Casino Robbery There are two basic types of robbery that can occur on a gaming property.

The first is the robbery of the casino itself, which involves a cashier’s cage, a satellite cashier, venue cashier, and occasionally the employee that carries a cash wallet for jackpot payouts.

At the time of this writing,

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police are investigating four separate robberies of casinos occurring within a week, and another robbery that had occurred two months prior.

This local trending is of concern, and is the focus of local police to conduct simultaneous investigations that do not appear to be related.

One of those instances involved three patrons who simultaneously grabbed Mystic Lake chips from a table game much in the fashion of

“flash robberies”

that occurred some years ago when multiple people would enter a convenience or other retail store and conduct mass theft in a swarming method, making it impossible for employees to prevent.

This is something that should be managed quickly to assure dealers and pit supervision are well trained in protecting table game bankrolls,

monitoring customers on games,

identifying potential perpetrators, contacting surveillance and security, and managing the employee and customer behavior in their workspaces.

Security and surveillance can work together to monitor the peripheral areas around table games pits,

identify patrons who closely watch or “hawk” players, and take appropriate action to “back them off” or request identification.

Periodic scans of the people and faces of people not gambling but near table games also become beneficial.

And yet another Las Vegas robbery involved the jumping over the counter of another Strip casino, grabbing cash, and fleeing out the casino doors.

This is another example of when designers move away from cage bars and barriers that prevent these types of robberies,

which most casinos implemented and still use that were installed after several high-profile similar events back in the 1990s.

Aesthetics changes and decreases in formidable barriers are noticed by criminals as an opportunity for robbery.
