Outsourcing you security requirements enables you to leave your business premises with the knowledge that your assets are being protected from potential theft, vandalism, fire, flood etc. A good security company allows you to concentrate on running your business rather than worrying about securing your people and property.

What does a SIA (Security Industry Authority) license mean?
The Private Security Act 2001 was laid out to regulate the security industry and on 20 March 2006, it became illegal to work as, or supply, a contracted-in security guard without an SIA license in England and Wales.

The SIA licensing scheme was also set up to improve the security industry's image so that the general public and the wider business world would have a much clearer understanding of how the industry is regulated and who is entitled to work in it.

To qualify for an SIA license the security guard must be aged 18 or over, be able to pass an identity check and criminal record check and have achieved the appropriate SIA approved training qualification.

All Vanguard Surveillance and Security officers hold an SIA License. Visit the SIA website for more information www.the-sia.org.uk
