LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California used to be known as the "Bank Robbery Capital of the World."

No more.

The Los Angeles Times reports the number of robberies has declined, part of a larger trend that has seen crime rates fall across the nation.

There were 212 bank robberies last year — the lowest since the 1960s — in a seven-county region overseen by the FBI's Los Angeles office.

During the worst year in 1992, more than two dozen Los Angeles banks were robbed in a single day.

Authorities say better security at banks such as bulletproof acrylic glass has made it harder for bandits to get access to money. They also credit the ability to make high-resolution images of robbers available to the public through the Internet.
