The Security Industry Authority responds to the publication of the Home Office Review of the SIA

SIA - Security Industry AuthorityThe Security Industry Authority (SIA) today welcomed the publication of the Home Office Review (of the regulator). The review was conducted on behalf of the home secretary by Tony Regan, a senior official in the Crime, Policing and Fire Group in the Home Office.

The review was intended to consider the relevance of the regulatory regime and the regulator. The review has evaluated SIA performance against the purpose of the Private Security Industry Act 2001, which sought to offer protection to the public, and professionalise the private security industry.

In a statement issued today, Alan Clamp Chief Executive of the SIA, said:

“We welcome the publication of this review of the SIA and of the regulatory regime for private security.

Many of the findings of this review reflect the SIA’s published priorities some of which we are already delivering successfully and others are reflected in our strategic plans going forward. We are enthusiastic about the findings and recommendations of this review.

We will work with Home Office and the Devolved Administrations to implement all parts of this Review which the Government wishes to take forward. We also stand ready to take on any extended areas of regulation, should the Government ask us to do so”.
