Cash in transit is a term used to describe the banknotes in the process of transfer from one location to another. During this process, a whole array of risks, threats, dangers and vulnerabilities arise. As much as the value of the assets is greater, the more the transport is the tempting target of attack by criminal, primarily, bandit groups. Cash in transit vehicles attacks are criminal activities that are carried out for the purpose of acquiring illegal property and they contain elements of violence, brutality and aggression. From a criminal and legal point of view, cash in transit vehicles attacks are classified as crimes against property, or rather as criminal offenses of robbery. Studying the circumstances of the crime through the chronological and logical connection of the discovered facts provides an opportunity for understanding the crime, i.e. to create a criminalistics version of the events, on the basis of which the further operational procedures of criminal prosecution authorities will be based. The general goal of this paper is a criminal and operational analysis of the cash in transit vehicles attacks, which should contribute to recognizing the shortcomings, deficiencies and weaknesses in the manner of securing, as well as the ways of their detection, clarification and proving by the criminal prosecution authorities.
The paper will present the results of the researched criminological, victimological and criminal-operational aspects of the cash in transit vehicles attacks in the Republic of Macedonia in the period from 2005 to 2016. In this regard, in order to review the criminaloperational acting after detection of the committed attack on a cash in transit vehicle, an analysis of a specific individual case will be made by describing the situation that had previously passed, the criminal situation, the measures and activities undertaken for its clarification and the consequences that arose from it.Through the security analysis applied in the paper, the basis for improvement and the creation of more efficient and effective ways of planning and performing of the cash in transit and other valuable goods should be created.
