Does anyone know of a great prepackaged robbery kit? What I'm really looking for is something that will be more helpful in identifying the weapon and vehicle used in a robbery.

The National Association of Bank Security has robbery assignment kits. http://www.banksecurity.com/ is their website. I am not sure if it is exactly what you are looking for though.

Thanks for the tip, I'm going to order one and take a closer look at it, but I don't think it had anything to help ID weapons or vehicles. I know this seems odd, but I think it would be a big help to law enforcment if the victim teller could describe the weapon and vehicle, so I was looking for something with photos of guns, vehicles, etc.

The last one was from me. Somehow I got logged out.

Mace Security International sells a weapons poster/chart. It is not a form for your staff, but it illustrates the different types of firearms they may encounter. Their phone number is 802-447-1503 or, if you're not in Vermont, 800-255-2634.
I have not personally purchased anything from them, so this is not an endorsement of their products. They sell a variety of security-related materials, some of which may also be available elsewhere. I'm sorry you're in a position where your people need to be able to identify weapons. We can't pay them enough for that kind of duty.

I wouldn't say we're in a position where our people need to be able to ID firearms. Actually I was thinking the opposite. Since it's not something they do on a regular basis, a visual aid would be really helpful. Just saying, "it was black or brown or gray" doesn't usually give law emforcement much to go on.

People should know only the basics, like was the gun a "revolver," generally used to refer to a handgun that uses a cylindrical magazine called the "cylinder," or an "automatic" handgun, loaded with bullets by first loading a container called a magazine, or loosely called a "clip." That is all the police and FBI types are looking for, except when a rifle, shotgun or machine gun is used.

Pictures of various generic gun types is all that is needed.

With the images we have right now, I don't this you could point out the differences in one hand gun and another. But I did find a kit that sounds like it includes something like what I was looking for. I orders a sample.

Thanks everyone for your input.
