Tom Day Represents National Private Security Company

Tom represented one of the largest private security providers in the country and two directors in the United Kingdom in a prosecution brought by the Security Industry Authority.

The Company and two directors were charged with a number of criminal offences (sections 5, 19 and 22) under the Private Security Industry Act 2001.

As a result of careful legal analysis, negotiation and discussion with the prosecution, the SIA  decided not to pursue an entire category of charges against the company and the directors.

In relation to the other charges Tom secured acceptable pleas of guilty to one offence by the company. He also ensured that only one director entered guilty pleas and all charges were not pursued against the other.

The company, with a multi million pound turnover, was fined less than ¬£500 following mitigation and the director received a Band C fine (the equivalent of one week’s salary).

Tom was instructed by David Edwards of Harrison Drury.
