How Cash-in-Transit Companies are attacked and how to stop it from happening

Feerica Articles, CIT Protection

Cash-in-Transit heists are organized criminal operations, executed with military-style planning and precision. Over the past 30 years there have been many different types of attacks on CIT service providers around the world. In some cases, these attacks lead to severe violence which not only puts the CIT crew and public bystanders’ lives at risk but also leads to substantial collateral damage. 

The Problem
Due to the growing volumes of cash required in today’s cash supply chain, it makes CIT operators attractive targets for criminals. It is therefore imperative that CIT service providers are prepared for this ongoing risk. Most CIT companies use armoured vehicles with intelligent exit & entry doors in conjunction with drop safes and cubicles inside these vehicles where the cash is kept. Some CIT operators in certain countries are permitted by governing law to use firearms for protection but this often results in aggravating the problem as it increases the level of intensity of attacks from criminals who are also heavily armed. These criminal syndicates generally work in large teams and occasionally recruit corrupt CIT staff as part of their organization to assist them with large heists. 

The Solution
