The security officer’s board is the governing body of the security industry. At SAS Security we pay particular attention to complying with these legal requirements in the running our company.
In all the years that we have been in existence, we have never received a fine or penalty for non-compliance with the stipulations as laid down by the Board.
All security officers in our employ are required by law to carry their S.O.B. registration cards on their person.
In addition to this, there are certain sites which have their own unique identification cards, which the security officers carry on their person.
