A Serious Threat

Cash and valuables in transit (CVIT) robbery is a very serious crime perpetrated by dangerous individuals that will not hesitate to use violence to obtain what they are after.

The complexities of tracing stolen banknotes back to a particular crime scene has historically made it difficult for police to link criminals to a specific robbery. This can be crucial, as the circumstances of the robbery can have a massive impact upon sentencing – particular if weapons or violence were used.

However, SmartWater has a track record of helping the police to capture and convict CVIT robbers – with SmartWater having supported over 500 investigations to date and a total of 950 years in prison have been issued as a result of SmartWater evidence.

Adding SmartWater® traceable liquids into CVIT cashbox systems had literally changed the environment in which thieves operated and two types of cashboxes, fitted with SmartWater, are actively deployed by the CVIT sector.

Dye Staining Cashboxes

Covers banknotes in a permanent staining ink when forcibly opened. The staining ink contains a SmartWater forensic taggant unique to the cashbox. This allows for stolen banknotes to be linked back to the crime scene.

Glue Cashboxes

When forcibly opened the cashbox releases a liquid that binds all of the notes together into a solid block. The liquid contains a SmartWater taggant unique to the cashbox so the glue-bonded notes inside can be traced back to where they came from.
