To make a change, we need you! 10,000 signatures will get the government to respond to this Petition. Currently at 4969 click here to show your support and sign this petition today!

Of course, we realise there may be some Administrative Charges to renew a licence, but we believe £220 for each individual officer every 3 years is excessive and something the Government needs to address urgently.

This cause is close to our Managing Director, Chris Lucas-Jones heart! Chris says:

As much as I completely support the Security Industry Authority and all that they bring to help regulate this private industry and ensure that only individuals who are fit and proper with the correct training and qualified are able to enforce, it is disappointing that the government do not directly provide any support through funding for the SIA even though this independent body reports to the Home Secretary. It is important that the government take this petition seriously and considers providing funding to support families who work within the industry”.

Why is it important to support our Security officers?

It is well known within the Industry that many who work within the UK are unbelievably on a minimum wage. Despite this, we are seeing more and more ex-military choose a role in the security industry from manned guarding (door security, security guarding, close protection, cash & valuables in transit, public space surveillance using CCTV), key holding and vehicle immobilising after their military career comes to an end. To ask them to move into another often high risk environment on a minimum wage and having to use their own money to obtain the compulsory licence will, eventually, have a detrimental effect on the number of trained, qualified and professional security officers which can only impact on the safety of the public.

We work closely with Absolute Enforcement to ensure that they offer the best enforcement services and that all enforcement agents are trained to the highest level. Some ex-military will obtain ELCAS funding to help secure new qualifications such as the Level 3 Certificate for Enforcement Agents, Baliffs, Taking Control of Goods Course.
