SIA Security Guard Licensing Fraud

A BBC investigation has found that thousands of licensed security guards could be working in the UK fraudulently after buying qualifications for cash.

Security Guards must train and sit a mandatory exam in order to qualify for the SIA card.


Hugo Martin is chief executive of Hawki, one of the UK’s most respected companies providing bodyguard training. He said: “If you don’t understand even the law and legislation, you don’t know how to deal with conflict, you could potentially do something that could land you up in jail. You’ve got to be at that skill set where a client has confidence that he’s going to empower you with the security of his life and family.” – BBC News
