Glue Based Cash Degradation System Now In Use By G4S

G4S Secure Solutions (UK And Ireland) : 27 September, 2010  (New Product)
Cash transport operators at G4S Cash Solutions now have a new weapon in the fight against robbery with cash boxes equipped with cash degrading glue rendering the money useless if deployed
Glue Based Cash Degradation System Now In Use By G4S
G4S Cash Solutions (UK) has announced that it has started to deploy a cutting edge glue cash degradation system in its cash boxes for its operations across the London area. This new technology is the very latest in the campaign against cash in transit crime in the UK.

Kevin O'Connor, Risk Director, G4S Cash Solutions (UK) said, "We are currently conducting extensive field trials for an innovative glue cash degradation system which renders stolen bank notes totally unusable. Our tests show that the glue will ensure that an attack on a G4S cashbox will be completely worthless to the perpetrator.

"This new technology will compliment our existing degradations systems of dye and SmartWater. Criminals caught following an attack on one of our CIT couriers already face a high probability of being convicted with the aid of SmartWater evidence, which has an impressive 100 percent success rate in securing convictions when used in criminal cases. Glue is the latest in a series of high tech solutions we have developed to reduce the number of attacks on our CIT crew and vehicles.

"The deployment of glue is another example of a successful partnership between the Met Police and the private sector in developing an effective deterrent against violent attacks on CIT couriers. We continue to work closely all police forces, trade unions, the Government, customers and local communities to develop ways to curtail these attacks."

The technology works by releasing a glue that delaminates the bank notes inside the cashbox if a robber tries to open it. Bank notes in the cash box are rendered completely unusable, meaning the robber has committed a theft for absolutely no gain.

This initiative is one of a number of steps being taken by G4S and the security industry to combat CIT crime. G4S alone has invested around £100 million over the past five years in crime prevention measures such as armoured vehicles, body armour and innovative technology.
