Cash In Transit Criminal Convictions Welcomed By BSIA

British Security Industry Association (BSIA) : 18 November, 2010  (Company News)
The conviction of cash in transit robbery suspects sends clear message as a deterrent for similar crimes in future according to the British Security Industry Association
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has welcomed the sentencing of four cash-in-transit robbers, which took place at the Old Bailey on Monday.

The offenders, who were responsible for several robberies in London netting them £100,000 and targeting late night cash deliveries to cash machines, received hefty sentences totalling 27 years.

James Kelly, BSIA Chief Executive, comments: 'The BSIA welcomes this sentence, which sends a clear message to any would-be criminals who may be considering future crimes. Last year, the cash-in-transit industry suffered over 1000 attacks in the UK, leaving 176 crew members and a Police Officer seriously injured. This is not a victimless crime and often members of the public are caught up in the trauma, many suffering injury.'

'The BSIA works closely with all police forces to combat cash-in-transit crime, and our thanks go to the officers involved in this case for their dedication in bringing these men to justice.'

Police were assisted in this case by use of modern technologies, such as face mapping on CCTV footage, which has been developed by the security industry to help catch criminals.

Ashley Bailey, Section Chairman of the BSIA's Cash and Valuables in Transit section, adds: 'These sentences provide another reminder of the serious nature of cash-in-transit robbery. The security industry remains committed to its ongoing partnership with Government and the Police to combat this serious crime.'
