Paramount Monitoring and Response Director and Manager Sentenced for SIA Offences

Paramount Monitoring and Response Director and Manager Sentenced for SIA Offences

James Lovett and James Turner, director and operations manager respectively of Paramount Monitoring and Response Ltd, were sentenced at Nottingham Magistrates Court on 25th May.

The pair had supplied unlicensed security staff between November 2014 and January 2015. Their actions amounted to a number of offences under the Private Security Industry Act (PSIA 2001).

Lovett, who pleaded guilty, was given a conditional discharge and ordered to pay costs, including victim surcharge, amounting to over £1,000. Turner, already serving a prison term for a £300,000 VAT fraud, received a 14 day imprisonment for each of his PSIA (2001) offences. In addition he was ordered to pay victim surcharge of £80 and £500 costs.

Paramount Monitoring and Response Ltd was fined £1,000 and ordered to pay costs of £4,743 and a victim surcharge of £100.
Once again this case emphasises the importance of employing responsible, professional security firms.
