        I've transported money in the past. It's interesting to see how employers have unarmed security personnel transport funds while armored truck companies are armed. It's like saying, "Over here in the uniform, I have money." It seems like a liability to me.

          We tend to watch what topics are getting attention in discussions and if the volume of discussion is there, we'll add a sub-forum. The best way to get that going is to create threads and posts on that topic that demonstrate there is enough of a critical mass here to warrant it.

          Be safe,

            Having an unarmed S/O do a money transport would be dangerous... Only the armed guys like me get to do it in our company, and even then, only specific S/Os...

              Well it depends on who the CAD brings up at our hospital. You have to love automated dispatching.

                Transporting Money

                My first experience in making bank deposits was working summers (part time) for the security department of an amusement park. Every day, except Sundays, we would drive the cash receipts, at times totaling several million dollars, to the bank and return with the change order. Making the deposits rested with the security department, and was a major event. We were escorted to the bank by no less than eight municipal police officers in four marked cars, and all officers were armed with either shotguns or automatic weapons. Why the amusement park never used an armored service was beyond me.

                  Probably because being a business, why spend money on an armoured car service when the police are doing it for free? As I mentioned in another thread I recently returned from a trip to Northern Ireland. There the unarmed armoured cars are escorted by armed police officers.
                  I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

                    I've never worked in money transport but have had a couple of calls from Brinks Armored service after seeing them at a military veterans job fair. I'd be interested in learning more about that side of Security.

                      I transported thousands when I worked as a messenger, but never as a guard. I carried it in a brown paper lunch bag and no one ever gave me a second look. There may be some advantages to avoiding uniforms and other equipment that captures the attention of onlookers. Likely, that will depend on the frequency/number of pick up locations and whether a schedule has to be maintained.

                          I have never actually transported cash myself, but I have escorted individuals with large amounts of cash to from their vehicles such as rent money. But these days as a general rule, Property Managers do not accept cash as a payment of rent. Checks, money orders are an accepted method of payment.

                            It's interesting the lack of Armored truck/transport guards we have here. I'd expect to see more here. With Brinks, Loomis, etc, employing thousands I wonder why so few have shown up here.

                              From listening to the Finance people up my way, electronic banking and money transfers is quick and cheap for many situations. They may still be needed for ATM and as change though..
