    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..

    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.

    Be safe,

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.
    Running numbers?

    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.

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.

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

    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...

    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,
