Police Tip-Off Leads to Prosecution

SIAOn Tuesday [25 February], an Oxfordshire-based security director was convicted at Banbury Magistrate’s Court for Private Security Industry Act 2001 offences.

Colin Wright, 45, of Ampney Cruis, Cirencester, was fined £500 and ordered to pay costs of £2,400 after pleading guilty to the charge of supplying three unlicensed door supervisors.

This matter was brought to the attention of Security Industry Authority investigators by Thames Valley Police after an operation checking door supervisor licences in Witney town centre.

During the operation two door supervisors were found to be working unlicensed. Upon further investigation it was discovered that three unlicensed door supervisors had been regularly supplied by Coresecure, over a period of one year, to the venue.

When interviewed by SIA investigators Wright, owner of Coresecure, admitted the offence.

SIA Head of Investigation Nathan Salmon said: “I’m very pleased with the outcome of this investigation. It shows that the SIA and local Police work in tandem, to ensure that the public can have confidence that door supervisors, who play an important part in the night-time economy, are properly trained and licensed.

“We will continue to work closely with partners to ensure that breaches of the Private Security Industry Act 2001 are quickly and appropriately dealt with. Our action in this matter was with the purpose of clearing out poor practice within the industry.”
