SIA: Standards of Behaviour for Security Operatives

SIA: Standards of Behaviour for Security Operatives

This is a post shared from the Security Industry Authority (SIA). See more information from them at their website:

SIA licence holders hold an important position of responsibility and trust. We are taking this opportunity to remind security operatives of the required standards of behaviour set out in their training.

Security operatives should conduct all aspects of their work in a responsible and professional manner.

We recommend that licence holders re-read the 'Standards of Behaviour for Security Operatives' provided during their training. It is available on our website here.

This guidance will support security operatives to deliver the high standards required of them as professionals. All operatives should have a good understanding of the contents of this guidance.

The guidance covers:

  • Professional Appearance
  • Professional Attitude & Skills
  • General Conduct
  • Organisation/ Company Values & Standards

We may consider taking action against any licence holder who falls below these standards.

We are developing our criteria to include a code of conduct for security operatives, which we will be consulting on later this year.

You can keep an eye out for updates on the code of conduct by checking our website here.
