Ditto for here locally to me.
Some companies seem to allow sidearms, some trucks can be seen to have shotguns stored in the driver's compartment, and I see some companies that do
not seem to arm their personnel or their trucks.
I don't know if they arm their people based on the size ($$$) of their load for the day or if they have a single policy that covers everything
(either armed or unarmed all the time).
Since I live in a less densely populated area of the country, it is fun to watch the security guards do their jobs. Some are so security conscious
that I can almost hear the theme to MISSION IMPOSSIBLE in the background and others treat the job like they are delivering the milk, never looking
around at their surroundings.
But, I don't think we have had an armored car robbery here in a long, long time.
