Supplier of unlicensed guards fined by Greenock Court

Security Industry Authority : 16 February, 2010  (Company News)
Security Company Director from Port Glasgow in Scotland has been fined for supplying security guards without licences
A security boss has been ordered to pay £1000 after pleading guilty to supplying unlicensed security guards.

William Boyd, 56, of Port Glasgow, Renfrewshire, was director of Greenock-based MHM (Scotland). The company deployed security staff to various construction sites in the area.

At Greenock Sheriff Court on Monday [1 February], Boyd pleaded guilty to supplying unlicensed security guards to sites and was ordered to pay £1000 by 1 March.

By law, contracted security guards must hold and display a valid Security Industry Authority licence. Those who manage, supervise and/or employ individuals who engage in licensable activity must also hold at least a non-front line licence.

Sharon Roberts, an SIA Head of Investigation, said: "I am pleased with this result. It sends out a strong message to those supplying security staff that flouting the law will not be tolerated. I would urge all directors and managers of security companies to ensure they comply with the legislation."
