SIA fraudulent SIA Licences statement

The SIA have provided a statement about fraudulent SIA Licences:

“We recently ran an investigation operation supported by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office ( NaCTSO) to help event organisers and licensed premises understand how best to vet and assess SIA licence holders hired to protect sites. The success of the operation and our investigations meant that nearly 50 licences were seized.

Our licence holders have an important job to identify potential threats to public safety, including terrorism. Therefore, due diligence must be undertaken to ensure staff are suitable to take on this role.”
