SIA Licence conformance high for Welsh guarding staff

Security Industry Authority : 20 May, 2009  (Company News)
Raids on licensed premises in Wales have revealed high levels of conformance to SIA licensing regulations by door staff and security guards in the region
A multi-agency operation targeting pubs and bars across Welshpool, Llandrindod Wells and Brecon on the 16th of May found high compliance with licensing regulations.

Officers from Dyfed Powys Police, Trading Standards, Powys County Council Powys, Powys Fire Service and investigators from the Security Industry Authority undertook inspections at licensed premises within the towns. 17 venues were inspected and 38 individuals where checked to ensure they held valid SIA licences.

36 held valid licences, one unlicensed door supervisor was identified and a Designated Premises supervisor of one premises was interviewed under caution for deploying in-house staff without a licence. Police are making further enquiries and prosecutions may follow.

By law, door staff must hold a front line SIA licence. Those who manage, supervise and/or employ door staff must hold a non-front line licence from the SIA.

Jacquie Parker, an SIA Head of Investigation said: “I am very pleased with the results of this operation. 95% compliance is an encouraging figure for the SIA and our enforcement partners. The public can also be reassured that they are in safe hands with trained, vetted and qualified operatives.

“We also urge licensees who employ door staff in-house or use contracted individuals to ensure that they are compliant with the law.”
