Heavy Fine For Unlicensed Door Supervisor

Security Industry Authority : 28 May, 2012  (Company News)
The SIA has brought an unlicensed door supervisor to prosecution in Peterborough resulting in community service order and costs amounting to 7000 pounds
A Peterborough door supervisor has been ordered to pay more than £7,000 for working illegally and breaking SIA licence conditions.

At Peterborough Magistrates’ Court recently, Scott Lee Greensmith was sentenced to a 12 month community service order to undertake 120 hours of unpaid work, and was ordered to pay costs of £7,833.

Greensmith, 32, from Uldale Road, Gunthorpe, Peterborough, pleaded guilty to working without holding a valid Security Industry Authority licence, but pleaded not guilty to breaking licence conditions when he failed to return his revoked licence to the SIA.

Greensmith was found working illegally in September 2011 when SIA investigators carried out a series of inspections across the UK. Greensmith was found working with a revoked licence at a bar in March, Cambridgeshire.

In court, District Judge Ken Sheraton found Greensmith guilty of breaking licence conditions because he failed to demonstrate that he had undertaken all due diligence to avoid contravening the conditions of his licence.

SIA Head of Investigation Nathan Salmon said: “Mr Greensmith had his SIA licence revoked and was aware of the SIA’s revocation process and he continued to operate as a door supervisor. By avoiding the reality of his situation, Greensmith has paid a high penalty.  I hope this sentence will act as a warning to others that in order to work as a door supervisor you must be correctly licensed and adhere to the licence conditions at all times.

“We will be carrying out a series of follow up checks at licensed premises in Cambridgeshire over the next few weeks. The aim is to raise awareness of SIA licence requirements for those working in the night time economy and to remind them, their employers and the venues they work at of their legal responsibilities.”
