Licence holders are subject to ongoing monitoring through a series of scheduled announced and unannounced inspections. The PSA also investigates complaints or intelligence brought to its attention and depending on the findings can take action up to suspension and revocation of licences where necessary. Unlicensed security providers either individuals or contractors and clients availing of unlicensed services are also detected through such monitoring and investigation.
Intelligence from the industry and the public continues to be a key aid to the Authority in targeting its inspection resources. If you wish to report an unlicensed security service please go to our Report An Unlicensed Security Service Page.
