Future of the Private Security Industry – Proposals for Change

The Home Office have launched proposals for a new regulatory regime for the UK’s private security industry today.

The Home Office is seeking views on the Government’s preferred option for reforming the regulation of the private security industry – a phased transition to a business regulation regime.

In a video message to the industry, SIA Chief Executive Bill Butler said:

“The aim of the Government’s recommended proposal is for more efficient and cost effective regulation, which continues to reduce criminality, protect the public and improve standards within the industry.

“We want to ensure that before committing to any action, we have listened to your views, to ensure that we have identified all the relevant issues before committing to any action.

“This is why we encourage everyone who is involved in the private security industry, at whatever level, to take part in the consultation.

“This is your industry and this is an opportunity for you to have a say on its future direction.”

The consultation paper is available on the Home Office website: www.homeoffice.gov.uk/publications/about-us/consultations/private-security-regulation/

The consultation closes on 15 January 2013.
