Prosecution for unlicensed Bridgend door supervisor

Security Industry Authority : 01 June, 2009  (Company News)
Using forged license documentation to operate as a door supervisor results in fine for Bridgend man
A man acting as a door supervisor in Bridgend has been fined for working without a licence.

Craig David Howe, 21, of Brackla, Bridgend, Mid-Glamorgan, pleaded guilty to the offence (under Section 3 of the Private Security Industry Act 2001) at Bridgend Magistrates Court last week (Tues 19 May).

He was fined a total of £475 - a £600 fine, which was reduced to £400 for an early guilty plea, and £75 in other costs.

Police were alerted by staff at a venue in Bridgend, where Howe had been working, as they believed he was unlicensed. Howe had been using a photocopy of another individual's licence with his picture superimposed.

SIA Head of Investigation Jacquie Parker said: "Although the venue had contracted door staff from an external company, they were vigilant in checking that only licensed operatives were working on their premises. With police we were then able to take appropriate action.

"This shows that those flouting the law will be prosecuted. It is essential that all those working as door supervisors, whether in-house or contract, are licensed, giving the public reassurance that only qualified and professional staff are acting in these roles."
