98% SIA compliance for Staffordshire door staff

Security Industry Authority : 30 June, 2009  (Company News)
The SIA is continuing its audits of door staff licensing compliance with checks in Staffordshire which revealed a 98% compliance rate
Random checks on door staff working at pubs and clubs in Stoke on Trent, Leek, Hanley and Newcastle under Lyme on Friday [26 June] found 98% compliance with licensing requirements.

Security Industry Authority investigators were joined by officers from Staffordshire Police with checks taking place at 44 venues. 128 door staff were inspected, with 126 operatives holding valid SIA licences.

Two designated premises supervisors working in house were not licensed - they were issued with Section 3 warnings (working without an SIA licence) and may be subject to prosecution.

By law, door staff must hold a front line SIA licence and display this whilst working. Those who manage, supervise and/or employ door staff must hold a non-front line licence.

Jacquie Parker, an SIA Head of Investigation said:

"I was pleased to find the majority of door staff complying with the law and it is reassuring for us and the public that door supervisors in the area are working legally.

"We will continue to work closely with our partners to ensure that only trained, qualified and SIA licensed operatives work at licensed premises."

Inspector Shaun Kerrigan, from the Stoke-on-Trent division of Staffordshire Police, said: 'From a policing perspective, it is encouraging to take part in such a positive operation that reinforces the professionalism of the security role within the business community.'
