Good results for Fife SIA compliance

Security Industry Authority : 22 June, 2009  (Company News)
Security site raids from the Security Industry Association in Fife reveal that most sites conform to licensing regulations
Checks at security sites in St Andrews, Fife last Friday [12 June] found the majority of security staff working within licensing regulations.

Investigators from the Security Industry Authority and officers from Fife Police checked security guards working at commercial sites. Three held licences and one individual was working as a security guard in-house and therefore did not require a licence.

Checks were also carried out on pub door supervisors - seven operatives held valid SIA licences. Fife Police charged one unlicensed individual for working without a licence under the Private Security Industry Act 2001.

Sharon Roberts, an SIA Head of Investigation said: "I am pleased that the majority of security operatives inspected were complying with the legislation. Anyone deploying or employed as a door supervisor at a licensed premises or as a contracted security guard at a commercial site needs to hold an SIA licence. We will continue to work with the police to ensure compliance with the law and further operations may take place."
