WHAT ARE ARMED SECURITY GUARDS ALLOWED TO DO TO PROTECT YOUR CASH LEGALLY?
If there is an attempted cash-in-transit heist, our security guards will never put your life in danger. He/she will follow the law.
According to Burchell and Milton’s Principles of Criminal Law (2005), private self-defence is when “A person who is the victim of an unlawful attack upon person, property or other recognised legal interest may resort to force to repel such attack. Any harm or damage inflicted upon an aggressor in the court of such private defence is not unlawful. “
However, in practice, it is not so easy. While every self-defence case will be heard on merit in the courts, you will have to justify your action. The following legal requirements will have to be met and proven:
- The attack was already in the process, or an attack was imminent. You may not shoot pre-emptively or after the attack took place.
- The attack was unlawful.
- You were protecting your life, your physical wellbeing, property, personal freedom, your dignity or sexual integrity.
- The act of self-defence was necessary to prevent the attack from escalating.
- Your act of self-defence was directed only toward the attacker.
- The act of self-defence was reasonable and proportionate to the circumstances. Shooting an unarmed person may not be considered self-defence.
- You didn’t have any time to resort to a different, less violent form of protecting yourself and your interests.
All security staff employed by Transcash have to be registered with PSIRA. This means that they have completed the necessary security grades at PSIRA approvedtraining institutions. (Cash in Transit staff require a minimum of a Grade C as well as the Cash in Transit (CIT) certificate).
