Door Staff Reported After Checks In Scotland

Eight door staff have been reported for working illegally, following checks for SIA licences carried out in pubs and clubs in areas of Scotland on Friday [19 Jan]. SIA investigators and Lothian and Borders Police visited 18 venues in Livingston. Of the 44 door staff checked, 40 were working legally with valid SIA licences. However, four were found to be flouting the law by working without a licence and were reported to the procurator fiscal.

In Wishaw and Motherwell, Strathclyde Police and the SIA went to four premises where 16 door staff were checked. Four door staff in Wishaw found working illegally and they were also reported to the procurator fiscal for working without an SIA licence. The remaining 12 door staff held valid SIA licences. Christy Hopkins, an SIA Head of Investigation said: “The law is quite clear; it is illegal to work without an SIA licence. In doing so, these operatives not only risk prosecution but put the public at risk.

Sergeant Ian Harkin from Strathclyde Police said: “The success of the operation demonstrates the benefits of working in partnership with the SIA. Strathclyde Police officers are committed to robustly enforcing this area of legislation. The safety of patrons attending licensed premises will continue to be a priority.”
