Accrington Security director flouts door laws

Yesterday at Accrington Magistrates Court, Mr Alan Neil Brownridge, Director of Universal Security Solutions Limited (based in Accrington, Lancashire) pleaded guilty to five counts under Section 3 of the Private Security Industry Act 2001  working without an Security Industry Authority licence and three counts of Section 19 failing to provide information to the SIA when requested.

By law, those who manage, supervise and/or employ door staff must hold a, non-front line licence from the SIA. Mr Brownridge was fined £500 for each Section 3 offence (£2500 in total) and asked to make a contribution to SIA costs of £1000. No separate penalty was imposed for the Section 19 offences.

At the same hearing, Mrs Tracy Brownridge, Director of Universal Security Solutions Limited pleaded not guilty to six counts of Section 3 and one count of Section 9  contravening the conditions of an SIA licence. A trial date has been set regarding the alleged offences against Mrs Brownridge for Accrington Magistrates Court on 2 July 2009.
