Grampian Security Company Fined For Using Unlicensed Guards

Security Industry Authority : 01 February, 2011  (Company News)
Company pleads guilty to employing five guards without SIA licences while operating in security functions
A Peterhead-based security company has been fined 560 pounds for deploying unlicensed security guards in the Grampian area.



At Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Friday [21 Jan], the court heard that Scotia Security (Scotland) Ltd, which is run by Andrew Buchan Tait, provided security operatives to an event in July 2009.



Police detected five guards working illegally as they did not hold Security Industry Authority licences. After further investigation, the police took the case forward to the Procurator Fiscal to consider prosecution.



SIA Head of Investigation Sara Hesp said: “SIA licensing protects the public from unsuitable people working in positions of trust in the private security industry. We expect security companies and their employees to comply with the law at all times.”



Garioch Local Policing Team Inspector Bob Thomson said: “Grampian Police along with our partners are committed to maximising the safety of the public at licensed events.



“We work closely with companies providing services in the security industry and it is important that they understand the need for their staff to be suitably trained and licensed when undertaking licensable duties.”
