“We are pleased to report that this financial year has seen good progress across all areas of the Security Industry Authority’s work. We have continued to improve our regulatory operations and support services and have established a sound platform to support the delivery of an efficient service for our customers and effective regulation to support public safety. We have been particularly pleased that, throughout the year, licences have been issued to those working in the private security industry well within our target times. We also recognise that we need that sound platform to meet the challenges we face over the coming years, both in terms of our successful delivery in new sectors (where decisions are made to proceed), and in supporting the Government’s drive to reduce cost.” Said the Chairman, Baroness Ruth Henig and Chief Executive, Bill Butler of the Security Industry Authority in a joint statement, when releasing the SIA’s annual Report and Accounts for 2009/10.
