      I'm following it now on MSNBC. I find it interesting that most of the air time is spent split between this and the latest Britney stunt.

          This is very sad, the firearms trainer, in Sacramento Ca., for Brinks and I were talking the other day about the same thing. Then this has happened. We all must be more observant to our surroundings and watch for the unexpected. I have prayed for their families and coworkers.

            That's a job I never ever would touch.

            Way back before I went to the academy (when I was working for Barton making 6 bucks an hour, around '94-'96) I looked into some Armored Car jobs. To this day I still can't believe they wanted to pay me 8 bucks an hour to ferry around their hundreds of thousands of dollars (and have a virtual target tatto'd to my head) lol. Especially when lots of other regular security companies were paying the same money or better for far less dangerous work.

            I've never once had the urge to steal, but just because I don't doesn't mean someone else won't, and I'd heard all the rumors and stories about "inside jobs" in money transport. That was another thing that concerned me. Add to that (From talking to folks who work in money transport) that a common theme is how "tight" those companies and the banks are with money, how hard it is to move up or get a raise and I said no thank you. God Bless those brave souls who do choose that line of work.

              Prayers sent.

              Several years back I applied for this type of position with Armoured Transport. (Now called A T Systems) I didn't like the feel of it when I was at their office. I am now glad that I did get the job.

                I talked to the Brinks recruiter at a job fair earlier this year. It was very tempting. I havn't had a pay raise in +3 years with my current contract company. Brinks mentioned regular raises and benefits my company doesn't have all for more pay per hour. If keeping up my EMT certification through my current post wasn't a concern of mine I'd probably take the Brinks job.

                  God Bless the two officers and their families. Armored car work is very dangerous. A Brinks officer was killed around here a few years ago in the same fashion.

                  In this area, you can make the same or better wages for office building work.

                    Cold-blooded as cold-blooded can be. I agree with the member above who highlighted the danger of insider threats. Another danger is complacency, especially for a repetitive job like cash handling. I was impressed with one armored company that I observed who had one guard with his pistol already drawn anytime the other guards where handling cash. His job was to identify and counter threats that the other two might not see do to the distractions arising from moving the cash/coin.

                        Good - hopefully he's the one. A guy like that wouldn't hesitate to take out an unsuspecting cop on a traffic violation.

                          Thats really a shame. Scum bag needs to be hung now.

                          I did ATM tech escort for seven years. Had a few instances that got hairy for a moment or two. Met a few of these people. The pay is not that good. The hours are not much better. These guys are what ATM terms are called replenishers. They work restrictive hours but unlike ATM escort details I worked on call 24/7. There is anything up to $15 to 25,000 in some of these machines.

                          There is Bentech (forgot the name but it sounds like that), Loomis and Brinks here in Florida.

                            Wow, that's a really crappy situation. I hope the 3rd Officer is doing well.

                            It is still a little upsetting to see the news article say, "Two former officers killed" since they used to be Policemen.

                              Transporting currency, gold, diamonds, art and other valuables is something I could and never would do! But someone has to do it! As BC stated...target on the back. I wish their families all the best.
