Held this year at Central Criminal Court (Old Bailey) in the City of London, the Annual Chartered Security Professional (CSyP) Presentation Dinner not only celebrated another successful year of admissions but paid tribute to the outgoing Chairman of its management committee, Lord Alex Carlile CBE QC.

After an eight-year term as Chairman of the Chartered Security Professionals Registration Authority (CSPRA), Lord Alex has stepped down from his role and passed the torch on to Security Institute President, Baroness Ruth Henig CBE CSyI. CSPRA is the committee which was established to oversee the management and maintenance of standards for the Register of Chartered Security Professionals (RCSP). Presentations were made to Lord Alex after the dinner, and many tributes paid to him for his support and wise guidance during his tenure.

Don Randall MBE CSyP, member of the CSPRA committee, said of this appointment;

“It is with enormous pleasure that we give Baroness Ruth Henig a hearty welcome as the new Chair of the CSyP governance body, CSPRA. Likewise, we give Lord Alex an equally hearty vote of thanks for his chairmanship, wisdom and astute guidance to the CSPRA board over the past eight years.”

Baroness Henig said “It is a great honour to follow Lord Carlile, and I very much look forward to working with senior security professionals on the Registration Authority. We all share a strong commitment to raise professional standards across the private security sector, and to encourage those working in the industry to gain chartered status.”
