    Default The Cash In Transit (CIT) Robbery Thread

    Here is why in cash-in-transit heists have boomed

    Easy access to explosives and corruption in the police system are some of the reasons for a dramatic increase in cash-in-transit heists‚ a study has found.

    Dr Mahlogonolo Thobane‚ who focuses on criminology‚ found that due to a lack of control in the mining sector‚ robbers find it easy to access explosives for heists.

    “The ramification of armed robberies is currently costing the banking and cash-in-transit industries vast amounts of money‚ not only in cash being stolen‚ but also due to money being spent on fighting this crime. The expenditure of these industries on target hardening and surveillance measures is radically increasing as perpetrators become more professional and sophisticated‚” Thobane found.

    They already do that, so no real difference. Maybe it'll stop them from demanding non-existent cash in homes?

    Start implementing discounts to patrons who make a cashless payment. Cash is expensive to handle on all levels.

    If trees could scream would we be so cavalier about cutting them down. What if they screamed all the time for no reason?
