A 26 year old door supervisor, who worked at clubs in Walsall, will appear in court this month charged with fraud, after it was discovered he failed to disclose previous convictions on an application for his licence.

The man from Leamore will appear at Walsall Magistrates Court on 17th August 2010, charged with fraud, following a joint investigation between Walsall Police and the Security Industry Authority (SIA). The SIA regulate the licensing of door supervisors, who must disclose any relevant convictions on their application forms.

Sergeant John De-Hayes, from the Walsall Borough Licensing Team said

“we work closely with the SIA to make sure that door supervisors in Walsall are properly licensed. Door supervisors play a vital role in minimising the risk of crime and disorder around pubs and clubs, so it is essential that the public can rely on us to make sure that unqualified or unsuitable people are not put in a position of responsibility. “
