Blackpool door staff checked to keep town clubs safe

Security Industry Authority : 17 September, 2009  (Company News)
Police in Blackpool joined the SIA to check licence compliance of door staff and guards in the towns nightlife
Saturday night checks on Blackpool's door staff and security guards working at pubs, bars and holiday parks found nearly all operatives working legally on the 12th of September.

All door staff and contract security guards must have a Security Industry Authority licence and this display this while working, as set out in the Private Security Industry Act 2001.

SIA investigators and officers from Lancashire Constabulary and Blackpool Council carried out the operation across 29 sites to ensure operatives were working legally. Of the 107 security operatives checked, 105 held a valid SIA licence.

Some offences were detected and the police plan to interview two individuals. One person was found working with an expired licence and another was found working with a revoked licence. Police also verbally warned one person for not displaying their licence.

Lucia Howland, an SIA Head of Investigation said: "Blackpool benefits from a vibrant night-time economy, so it was encouraging to find the majority of sites taking a responsible approach to protecting their customers by using SIA-licensed individuals.

"Security operatives must ensure that they comply with all licence conditions - including displaying valid licences at all times while working.

Sergeant Sarah Salisbury, licensing sergeant for the west division of Lancashire Constabulary, said: "Partnership working is always beneficial and the operation was a success."
