What is SaferCash?

SaferCash is a security initiative which aims to reduce the number of attacks on cash-in-transit couriers through the effective sharing of intelligence between the cash in transit industry and Police forces nationwide.

SaferCash is a proven partnership approach between Industry and Police that is approved by the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) and the Home Office. SaferCash has the ability to identify linked offences where Organised Crime Groups (OCGs) are active across Force and Regional boundaries.  In the case of CVIT, OCGs are carrying out attacks nationwide, impacting on local communities and funding other criminal enterprises.

SaferCash is able to draw all the information/intelligence together and to assist in ensuring early industry prevention and early police intervention thus reducing the overall risk and costs of crime to both industry and the community.

Operated by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), SaferCash was established in 2005 and is mainly funded by members of the BSIA's  Cash and Valuables in Transit (CVIT) section.

Although SaferCash has traditionally concentrated on CViT companies who are members of the BSIA since 2013 it now provides the same service to 
major banks and building societies, ATM providers and a major cash holding facility who are now SaferCash members and are benefiting from the SaferCash approach.
