'Every stained note is a stolen note'
Robberies involving security vehicles, banks, post offices, shops, off-licences or bookmakers are not victimless crimes. It affects the whole community, especially those who work in the security industry whose job involves getting cash to and from premises at the heart of our communities. Criminals who commit this crime do not hesitate to use violence against innocent people, causing their victims deep distress.
