The FBI released bank crime statistics for calendar year 2009. Between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009, there were 5,943 robberies, 100 burglaries, and three extortions of financial institutions reported to law enforcement. The total 6,065 reported violations represents a decrease from 2008 during which 6,857 violations of the Federal Bank Robbery and Incidental Crimes Statute were reported.
These statistics were recorded as of February 22, 2010. Note that not all bank crimes are reported to the FBI, and therefore the report is not a complete statistical compilation of all bank cries that occurred in the United States.
