Applying for a SIA Secruity License

An SIA licence allows the licence holder to legally practice in the industry. Working without a valid SIA Licence is a criminal offence, which means you could be fined and even put in prison. Upon summary conviction at a Magistrate’s Court, Sheriff Court or District Court, a maximum penalty of six months imprisonment and/or a fine of up to £5,000.


Moreover, getting an SIA license helps Security Officers and Door Supervisors gain more trust from people, because people would like to be sure that security officer or Door Supervisor has been legally permitted to carry out security roles and that he is enough knowledgeable in his field.
