This month’s newsletter comes hot off the heels of our Stakeholder conference. We share our special edition conference newsletter below. It includes summaries of each presentation, as well as an overview of the topics of discussion from the workshops.
In our March update, we are supporting the #ActionCountersTerrorism
campaign, and want to encourage the private security industry to report any suspicious behaviour and activity.
This month we published an updated version of our ‘Get Licensed’ booklet. It outlines the criteria we use when making decisions on licences.
In this month’s enforcement update we reveal a recent operation our investigators ran to check licences across West Yorkshire. You can also read about the owner of a security company who was found guilty after an unlicensed employee assaulted a customer. We also prosecuted a Wiltshire-based security company director – details below.
In our ‘Licensing Matters’ section of the newsletter, we explain that we will write to you ahead of time if we think that our decision will be to refuse your application. We also clarify that the fee we charge when you apply for a licence is an application fee.
Finally, we are inviting you to participate in our ‘Protecting Vulnerable People’ safeguarding workshops.
