Industry Analysis 2009
Only 6.58 % of Security Companies could Qualify for Self Regulation After producing their Private Security Industry Analysis 2009, Infologue.com believes that only 6.58 percent of the regulated security industry could be ready for self regulation should the Government decide to axe the Security Industry Authority (SIA) in their planned “Bonfire of the Quangos” replacing the regulator with self regulation. This analysis demonstrates the initial need for a twin track approach to regulation in the form of “part SIA, part self” as intimated by the SIA Chair Ruth Henig at the SIA conferenc...
SME’s back Four Issue – One Voice Campaign
The following SME’s have added their support to the growing list of endorsement for the SMT – Infologue.com campaign – Four Issues One Voice: Regent Group Regent Group will be happy to support the ‘one voice’ campaign in conjunction with Infologue.com and SMT. In order for any legislation to be effective, consistency of standards is of utmost importance.  Ultimately, is there any difference between my company employing someone to perform a security role and another company using in-house staff to so the same with differing standards.  It is the role that should be licensed as...
Skills for Security joins growing campaign support
We at Skills for Security would like to congratulate Security Management Today on your joint campaign with Infologue.com entitled Four Issues, One Voice, and would very much like to add our voice to the swelling chorus of support you are no doubt beginning to attract. Campaign 1: Licensing of in-house officers As the security sector’s skills and standards setting body, we are fully supportive of the unilateral licensing of security personnel that carry out the same ‘licensable activities’. It is unacceptable - and certainly not in the long term public interest - to sustain a potent...
ASIS International commend Four Issues Campaign
As chairman of the UK Chapter. I am mindful that with over 700 members in the UK, drawn from a cross section of the security community, I cannot claim that my comments represent the views of the entire membership; they are very much my personal opinions. I would ask ASIS members to join in the debate if they feel they have an alternative view to my own. I commend Brian Sims and Bobby Logue for launching this debate. I don’t wholly agree with all of their ideas but I do believe that the issues raised are extremely important and need to be addressed if we are to move the industry forward....
The Security Institute supports Four Issues One Voice campaign
The Security Institute welcomes the Four Issues, One Voice campaign, which looks at a number of important strands in the current bid to regulate the industry. We are ardent supporters of the Security Industry Authority’s (SIA) efforts, and applaud not only the many achievements the Regulator has already made, but also the way in which it has helped the security business sector move forward in recent years. We also acknowledge the measures taken by the Regulator to consult with the many and varied representatives of a diverse and complex industry. Now, as before, we believe that the profe...

Issue 4: Cutting red tape
Regulation does not have to mean burdensome red tape. SMT and Infologue.com want the industry’s practitioners and companies to bring to the attention of the SIA – and indeed ourselves – those areas where they feel the regulatory process could become more efficient without any loss of integrity. A good example of this is the process whereby a licensed security officer has to repeat the whole licensing process if they require a Public Space Surveillance CCTV operator’s licence. Our understanding is that the only difference in the application process concerns the training element. If this...
