What does it check?
We'll check whether an individual has a valid Security Industry Authority licence.
SIA licensing ensures that private security operatives are 'fit and proper' persons who are properly trained and qualified to do their job. Whether or not an individual requires a licence is determined by the role that is performed and the activity that is undertaken. Security activities which require a licence are: • Manned guarding, which includes: o Cash and Valuables in Transit o Close Protection o Door Supervision o Public Space Surveillance (CCTV) o Security Guard • Immobilisation, restriction and removal of vehicles • Key Holding
