ATM attacks

In 2015 Finance Denmark compiled statistics about attacks on ATMs.

The statistics show how many cases of explosions, attempted explosions and ram-raiding there have been. The statistics are compiled in cooperation with the Danish National Police.

Currently, the number of ATM attacks is on a level with the number of bank robberies. The objective for banks is to reduce these cases.

The increasing use of electronic payments by Danes has reduced the need for cash. By continuing to develop new payment solutions, we can maintain the development away from cash and that can reduce ATM attacks - less cash, less crime.
