Undercover Police to help keep cash vans secure over Christmas

Written by David Howells on .

Cash in Transit vans look set to be followed by undercover police in a new drive to catch out any would-be robbers, expressandstar.com reports.

With Christmas being a time of money worry for many, Police in Staffordshire have unveiled the initiative to prevent vans from being targeted by thieves this winter and to promptly swoop on anybody that tries.

Travelling in unmarked police cars, undercover officers will follow the cash-in-transit vehicles around their stops to banks, pubs, supermarkets and post offices, ensuring the handlers don't come across any threats. They will also monitor garages and properties the vans are set to deliver to.

The operation, nicknamed 'Follow That Van' is set to take place over the entire Christmas period, with a view to extending it or encouraging other forces around the UK to follow suit.

Speaking to lichfieldlive.co.uk of the operation, Detective Superintendent Martin Evans explained: "The increased use of covert patrols will make cash-in-transit robberies a far more risky enterprise for gangs. We are aware of the potential hot-spots, we are in regular communication with the industry over delivery times and are generally well prepared.

"Marked and unmarked police cars will follow security vehicles, but there are many other covert tactics in place. This is a crime which can have lasting effects on the people who are working for the security companies or businesses, but it is one we are determined to stop."
