Private Investigators License

Overview of the UK S.I.A Private Investigators licence In the Private Security Industry various sectors have already been licenced such as: Manned guards, Door supervisors, Close protection operatives, Public space surveillance (CCTV) operators and Security guards by the Security Industry Authority. The S.I.A is the organisation responsible for this regulation and reports to the Home Secretary.
Private Investigators License

The Security Industry Authority1 has a series of objectives which cover these professions and the Private Investigator sector, such as: “Providing services and standards to their customers”, “Delivering regulatory activities effectively and efficiently”, “Delivering a development programme that continues effective regulation of the private security industry” and “To be recognised internally and externally as a model of good practice”.

As Licensing for Private Investigators is a government priority2 in the UK.

The following indices can be drawn from existing literature:

Although Private Investigator licences and the requirement for a business licence are still subject to Ministerial approval, the momentum is there and a whole new world of regulation, inspection and bureaucracy is coming.

A typical S.I.A Licence costs: 220.00 and lasts for 3 years. To get the S.I.A Private Investigator licence you need to pass the, “Fit and Proper person” tests and need to have successfully completed a, “Test of Competency”, such as The Association of British Investigators Training Academy: IQ Level 3 Award for Professional Investigators3 or the BTEC Professional Investigators4, costing around: 300.00 – 400.00.

Please note that that the Draft British Standard for the Provision of Investigative Services recommends that the competence necessary to complete an investigation has been demonstrated by the supplier of the services: Conducting investigations, conducting interviews, searching for information and preserving evidence, surveillance techniques, understanding and working to relevant laws and standards and the ability to report findings the syllabus of the Level three Awards5….

The rush amongst Investigation companies to gain as much kudos and credibility as possible by attaing, “Voluntary , Kite marks, such as: British Standard 1020006, has abated and “Self regulation”, is, now, the order of the day. The organisations and businesses that wish to bid for government contracts have enroled on the Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) – involving eligibility checks, an assessement conducted by an external body and hefty annual registration fees.

Please note that in Northern Ireland some of the criteria for assessing convictions are: “Conflict related”. All applications are actually assessed on an individual basis and the decision is specific to each licence type. The SIA licensing system decision is open to appeal.

In order to apply for a licence you must have the right to work in the UK but you do not have to be a British Citizen.

With your licence you can begin your journey as an investigator, but, only experience, continual training and luck will ensure you make a successful profitable, career in the sector.

You re booked: for being a vigilante apostrophe pedant

Helpful crime? A self-styled grammar vigilante has revealed how he has changed offending shop signs under cover of dark for over a decade. In a less conventional zero-tolerance stance on bad punctuation than Lynne Truss s bestseller Eats, Shoots & Leaves , the man wields a broom handle with two sponges at one end to apply stickers to dozens of missing and misplaced apostrophes on the highest shop banners.

The jury s out on whether the middle-aged vigilante, who won t reveal his identity, has actually committed any crime. He claims his efforts are needed to bring an end to the improper use of English. But even more pedantic critics suggest he should start by correcting his own alias as apostrophes are punctuation marks. I m a grammar vigilante. I do think it s a cause worth pursuing. I have felt extremely nervous. The heart has been thumping, he told the BBC. embedded content Some owners of shops and commercial premises who have fallen foul of the apostrophe vigilante are not bothered by his actions. However, Jason Singh who owns a tailors called Tux & Tails, claims that he potentially faces paying thousands of pounds for his new vinyl sign to be corrected, because the omission of the apostrophe in Gentlemens was corrected.

We think it s paint, and this is vinyl, so if we have to replace it you re looking at a few thousand pounds At the end of the day I d have preferred him to come in and tell me, said Singh, who thinks there may even be grounds for a police complaint. And if his name is revealed, I ll be sending him an invoice for the damages, he added. A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Police said the force was unaware of any complaints being lodged, but any permanent damage caused could provide grounds for police intervention.

About the course:

Obtaining a Close Protection qualification is the first step towards obtaining an SIA Licence to work as a Close Protection Officer (CPO). If you are looking to work a bodyguard, this is the right course for you.

This means the Close Protection training course covers a broad range of skills, from threat assessment, operational planning and reconnaissance, to vehicle techniques, search procedures and close protection teamwork.

To allow ample time to teach the broad range of skills required, the Close Protection course runs over 16 days and consists of three units:

2. Working as a Close Protection Operative.
3. Conflict Management1

In addition to the minimum course content required by the SIA, our course also includes the following elements at no additional cost:

1. First Aid at Work + Defibrillator Training

2. Evasive Driving and/or Convoy Driving

3. Introduction to Short Firearms

4. Close Combat Training

5. Anti Ambush Training

6. Accommodation
