The Home Office Classification of Offences for Criminal Statistics has no category of 'serious' and currently there are no plans to change this.
The Government recognise the seriousness of cash and valuables in transit (CVIT) robbery and the impact these attacks have on both victims and witnesses. We are currently working hard with stakeholders to establish a cross-industry response to the problem. We are planning a national stakeholder conference in April which will build on the recommendations for action from a London conference to be held on
The Serious Organised Crime Agency will continue to work closely with local forces on CVIT crime, providing tactical and operational support where appropriate.
