Door Supervisors

Reference Library – Door Supervisors

Door supervisor who refused to wear his SIA licence receives a criminal conviction and loses his licence

Door supervisor, Warren Steele, has had his licence revoked following a conviction, for failing to display his licence whist on duty. Steele was sentenced on 15 September 2017, at Chester Magistrates Court. Steele, a head door supervisor, was caught on two occasions failing to display his licence when he was working at a bar near Chester. When our investigators confronted Steele, he was less than co-operative. This is an important condition, as it demonstrates to the public that the door supervisors they see at bars and clubs are properly licensed and regulated.

We revoked Steele s licence as a result of his non-compliance. Pete Easterbrook, our Criminal Investigations Manager said:

“Warren Steele thought that the conditions attached to his SIA licence didn t apply to him. He didn t want to listen to our investigators advice when we spoke to him, and instead displayed an attitude that was both disappointing and concerning. The vast majority of operatives working within the security industry engage positively with the SIA and our partners. However, the circumstances of this case meant that we considered prosecution to be entirely appropriate.”

Wrexham County Chief Inspector, David Jolly said:

“The prosecution of Steele demonstrates the effective partnership between the North Wales Police licensing team, the Local Authority and the SIA. The irresponsible behaviour by Steele undermines all the fantastic work that workers in the night time economy undertake to ensure that the public can enjoy themselves.”

This case began in February 2017 when our investigators, in conjunction with North Wales Police Licensing Team, were conducting checks in the Connah s Quay area. Our investigators challenged Steele over not displaying his licence, he answered that he didn t think he should have to.

Our partnerships and interventions team and the police warned him that failing to display his SIA licence constituted a breach of his licence conditions. On 23 June 2017, our criminal investigations team were carrying out licence checks again in the Connah s Quay area. They came across Steele who was still not displaying his licence, despite having been told in February to do so. Consequently, we decided to prosecute Steele for ignoring the licensing conditions. The court heard that Steele, a head door supervisor, had held SIA licences for a number of years, and should therefore have been aware of the SIA licensing conditions.

As a result, Steele has had his licence revoked and was issued with a conditional discharge for 6 months. He was also ordered to pay costs of 250 and a victim surcharge of 20. Pete Easterbrook, our Criminal Investigations Manager also said:

SIA licence holders have both a responsibility and a legal obligation to adhere to the conditions of that licence. These are not optional. In this case, failure to comply has resulted in a criminal conviction and a revocation of the individuals SIA licence.

Where appropriate we will try to encourage compliance in the first instance. However, we will not hesitate to prosecute those who display a blatant contempt for regulation, and in doing so undermine the safeguards and assurances that regulation provides.

Supporting the Drive to Combat Child Sexual Exploitation

Supporting The Drive To Combat Child Sexual Exploitation

Our Partnerships & Interventions team recently ran an event in Nottingham on 31 August. The child sexual exploitation coordinator and the missing children s team manager from Nottinghamshire Police were present, plus representatives from Nottingham City Council as well as industry partners and large providers of door supervisors in Nottingham. The evening started with a multi-agency media briefing to the BBC, ITV, Nottingham Post and GEM 106 FM. The briefing covered Operation Canberra. and the work we have done with local partners to address child sexual exploitation.

Our investigators, Matt Murchington and Dave Lightfoot, highlighted the leaflets we designed and produced in collaboration with Nottinghamshire Police and the city council. These leaflets raise awareness of child sexual exploitation and outline what to look for and how to report it. They also detailed the work we have done to support local partners, including an awareness seminar for security companies in Nottingham in September 2016 and our plans to distribute the leaflets nationally to help raise awareness of the exploitation of children. After the briefing, our investigators went in to Nottingham city centre with the police and council teams and handed out the leaflets to security operatives on duty at bars, clubs, casinos and fast food restaurants.

During the evening, at the Revolution Cornerhouse, BBC East Midlands Today and ITV Central East Midlands news reporters carried out interviews. This event was featured in the regional news, which ran footage of our investigators speaking to door supervisors and handing over the leaflets. There are plans to distribute the leaflets nationally in the near future.

Operation Canberra

The evening event was an element of Operation Canberra, which is an initiative that assists Nottinghamshire Police, Nottingham City Council and Nottingham City Safeguarding Children Board. It supports the Police and other partner agencies by demonstrating ways in which the SIA can help their efforts to combat child sexual exploitation in Nottinghamshire. It also seeks to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation across the private security industry.

The initiative aims to increase current child sexual exploitation reporting from the security industry across the county, and to provide meaningful support to those agencies efforts to deal with the issue.
