Security company director jailed

Security Industry Authority : 08 October, 2014  (Company News)
Secure Serve director faces 18 months in jail after being handed a custodial sentence for failing to pay back the proceeds from crime
Security company director jailed

On 2nd October at Bridgend Magistrates’ Court, an ex-security director was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment for failing to pay £80,000 under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA).

In October 2013, Dean Campisi, 52, was convicted at Cardiff Crown Court, after falsely claiming that his company, Secure Serve Facilities Management Services Ltd (Secure Serve) was part of the Security Industry Authority’s Approved Contractor Scheme.

Campisi used fake documentation to pass Secure Serve off as an Approved Contractor. He secured and maintained security contacts with the Lidl supermarket chain worth £15,000 a week.

Lidl cancelled the contract with Secure Serve after making enquiries that revealed Secure Serve was not ACS accredited.

The SIA successfully prosecuted Campisi, and then made an application under the Proceeds of Crime Act to recover the ill-gotten funds from Campisi. The SIA identified money received by Campisi from the Lidl contract. A POCA confiscation order was passed ordering Campisi to pay £80,000 within six months; failure to pay would lead to a custodial sentence for 18 months.

Following Thursday’s short hearing at Bridgend Magistrates’ Court, Campisi failed to pay the £80,000 and was immediately taken into custody.

Head of Investigation, Nathan Salmon, said: “The SIA will protect the integrity of the Approved Contractor Scheme and its members. The ACS offers a ‘hallmark’ of quality to buyers of security, and it is a mark that is respected and trusted.

“It was important that Mr Campisi was pursued under Proceeds of Crime legislation, to recover the benefit he gleaned from his actions. However, failure to pay has now landed Campisi in prison.”
