Licensing Protection For The Night Time Economy

Shield Associates are experienced in all aspects of Licensing protection, impact assessments and providing expert witness evidence at Licensing Hearings. We have the ability to protect your licence from revocation or having highly restrictive conditions placed upon it following a Licensing review. We have many years of Law enforcement and practitioner experience in policing large and smaller night-time venues  across London and the Home Counties.

We are able to undertake full risk and impact assessments to support licensing applications, especially in cumulative impact or special priority areas. We can also conduct forensic reviews of your operating systems and processes and provide a documented action plan to ensure compliance with the licensing provisions.

We can design out crime from your establishments and set up protocols for combating specific crime i.e. mobile phone thefts, door queuing, ejection policies, drug seizures, duty of care and meeting with representatives from the police, community and local authority.

Your company and its staff will benefit from training in accredited courses through the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and the SIA.
