PRETORIA - Police are adamant they're slowly turning the tide against cash-in-transit robberies.
Minister Bheki Cele and his team said there's been a decrease in the number of heists reported between April to November this year compared to the same period last year.
Between April to November 2018, 118 cash-in-transit robberies were recorded.
That's down compared to the same period last year where 184 robberies took place.
Police attribute this improvement to their 72-hour action plan.
They said crime intelligence is also stepping up to the plate, as several suspects have been arrested for plotting to carry out cash-in-transit robberies.
Cele said the priority is to continue increasing police visibility and improving response times.
