Thumbs-up for North Devon door staff
Security and door supervisors make the grade in council spot check
A JOINT operation has taken place in North Devon to check that door staff at some of the district’s pubs and clubs are properly trained and registered.
North Devon Council and the Security Industry Authority (SIA) carried out checks on six licensed premises in Barnstaple and Ilfracombe on Friday, November 25.
As a result, all were found to be meeting the required standard for employing security and door supervisors.
Council leader Cllr Brian Greenslade said: “We’re pleased with the results, as it shows that our pubs and clubs are taking this responsibility seriously.”
