Security measures

NSI approved companies invest in security measures to combat robbery. These include protective equipment and enhanced training for couriers. CCTV and body cameras, DNA dye and glue to protect cash and target hardening measures in cash centres and on vehicles.

It is essential that CVIT couriers are able to park their vans as close as possible to the required locations. Sometimes, this can mean parking in potentially unlawful areas, such as on a single or double yellow line.


Working to standards

NSI approved companies work to BS 7872, the Code of Practice for Operation of Cash-in-Transit Services (collection delivery).

All CVIT operatives are licensed under the Private Security Industry Act.

NSI approved companies only deploy well trained, and licensed CVIT operatives, adding to their standards of training and security.

To obtain an SIA licence the person must be at least 18 years old, pass an identity check and criminal record check. The licence must be displayed at all times, so don’t hesitate to ask to see the licence if it is not visible. You can also check here to make sure the individual is registered.
