  • Cash Escorts

    Apologies if this is old hat, but I'm back in the civilised world for a couple of weeks, and notice in the papers that there's been something of a spate of cash transport robberies. Was it not the case that there used to always be a couple of gardai and a section of troops with AUGs running escort for the things? When did that stop? Or was it only for deliveries over a certain size?

    Driver, tracks, troops.... Drive and adjust!!

  • #2,you are pushing the bounds of operational info here. Security vans have been used for Cash in transit(CIT) for some time now,but are only escorted by gardai when requested by the banks. The Army only assist when requested (in an ATCP role) by the Gardai.

    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

      And there is a cash limit but I don't know what it is.

        On cash escorts, these should be done away with or the banks should be charged enough for the service to make a profit for the DF & Garda- which are not alternatives to taking your own precautions
        Take these men and women for your example.
        Like them, remember that posterity can only
        be for the free; that freedom is the sure
        possession of those who have the
        courage to defend it.
        Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.
        If you're not ready to die for it, put the word freedom out of your vocabulary.

          hey mods,

          should this really be discussed here ????

            No specific operational information has been released and anything said so far is pretty much in the public domain already. however some comments have been edited.

              Given the increased level of CIT robberies in Dublin, the information would appear to be out there already.

              However the cya rule applies so........
