ISIA Awards 2014 - The Winners 

The Irish Security Industry Association (ISIA) hosted the ISIA Awards on Saturday 1st November at the Powerscourt Hotel.  The awards were attended by over 230 individuals from the private security industry and senior management from a variety of industries.  Also in attendance were members of the Private Security Authority, An Garda Síochána and His Excellency, Dominick Chilcott, British Ambassador to Ireland.  The MC on the night was Sinead Desmond of TV3. 
As pointed out by ISIA President, Sheenagh McCullagh “The ISIA Awards gives us an opportunity to celebrate our industry leaders and their people”.  McCullagh thanked all those members “who came to the event to celebrate their employees success” and she paid tribute to all those who submitted nominations this year.  “It is evidence of ISIA member’s dedication to excellence, that they take the time to consider those individuals and teams that help make their company a leader in the security industry”.  For details of all the winners click here.

Unlicensed Contractors

Providing security services that require a PSA license when you don't hold a valid license is illegal.  We want to help our members ensure unlicensed contractors are reported to the PSA.  If you are uncertain about reporting an unlicensed contractor, let us help and submit a report to the PSA on your behalf.  We will communicate with the PSA to ensure you get the feedback you need.  Contact us and we will file the report for you. Tel: 01-4847206 or email us.  Make sure the legislation that governs your industry is upheld.
