A security company, its director and two senior managers were found guilty of offences under the Private Security Industry Act 2001, at Leeds Magistrates' court on Wednesday [13 November].
The Security Industry Authority prosecuted Leeds based Pro-Tech Security Northern Limited (Pro-Tech) and its director Joseph Grinion. Former director Stefan Rees and Operations Manager Richard Dyson were also prosecuted.
The prosecutions came as a result of an operation carried out by officers from Leeds City Council Licensing department and West Yorkshire Police in September 2012.
During the operation one door supervisor was found working with another individual's licence. He was instantly arrested, bailed and later given a formal police caution. The matter was then passed over to the SIA to investigate further.
Subsequent enquiries by SIA investigators found that the arrested man was unlicensed and had been supplied to work in licensable roles by Pro-Tech since November 2011.
