SIA disappointed with low compliance in Wales

Security Industry Authority : 01 August, 2013  (Company News)
Raids with Dyfed Powys police uncover high non-compliance of security door supervisors
SIA disappointed with low compliance in Wales

Security Industry Authority investigators joined a Dyfed Powys Police led operation to check door supervisors across Ceredigion on Saturday the 27th of July.

In total, 44 premises were visited including: holiday parks, music festivals, and pubs and clubs. Of the 49 security operative checked, 5 individuals were found to be working without an SIA licence. Enquiries are on-going and will be taken forward by the police and the SIA.

Warnings were also issued to 10 door supervisors who had failed to notify the SIA of a change of their address, and for failing to display their SIA licence properly; both are breaches of SIA licensing conditions.

SIA Head of Investigation Paul Cartlidge said: “We are disappointed by the number of door supervisors found working without an SIA licence. It is also disappointing to see that door supervisors are wearing photocopies of their licences; this is illegal and a practice that must stop.

“We will continue to work closely with Dyfed Powys Police to conduct more operations in the area.”

Dyfed Powys Police Inspector Rose Ann Lloyd said: “I would like this opportunity to remind licensees that it is a criminal offence to employ unlicensed door supervisors, to display a photocopied SIA licence, and that they must themselves also be licensed to employ door supervisors.

“We now plan to carry out further operations in the future.”
