Essex-based security staff get police powers


The powers allow door supervisors to hand out on-the-spot fines

A security company based in Essex is to be given some police powers to tackle anti-social behaviour.

Door supervisors working for Regency Security Services will be able to hand out on-the-spot fines.

Under the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS), staff will carry identity cards issued by police.

Regency provides security staff at shopping centres and more than 200 door supervisors at venues in Chelmsford, Basildon, Harlow and Colchester.
