Code of conduct for security operatives


We intend to introduce a code of conduct for security operatives. When we do, all licence holders and licence applicants will have to follow the code.

We have not set a date for when this will happen. We are still working out what the code of conduct should include.

Why are we doing this?

We have a legal responsibility to make sure that only “fit and proper” people hold an SIA licence. The Private Security Industry Act 2001 uses this phrase but does not explain exactly what it means.

A code of conduct will describe how a “fit and proper” person should behave. It will improve standards within the private security industry and help to keep the public safe.
