ACS status withdrawn following trial

by Brian Sims

A security company is having its Approved Contractor Scheme status withdrawn following convictions at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court. Project Security UK of Lazarus Court, Doncaster, and its two senior managers were convicted for security offences on 27 November. As a result, the Security Industry Authority has made the decision to remove the company’s ACS status. Project Security and its director Simon Bran pleaded guilty to supplying three unlicensed security guards. The security company’s other director, Ian Smithurst, pleaded guilty to providing false information to the SIA. In March 2013, the SIA received intelligence about an unlicensed security guard working for Project Security. A formal request for information made by SIA investigators to the security company was returned with names of licensed security operatives. Further enquiries revealed that the names given by Project Security were different to the names of those working at the sites in question. SIA investigators discovered several other security guards were working illegally from June 2011 to March 2013. For supplying three unlicensed security guards, Project Security UK Limited was fined
