Private Investigators London Comment on the Importance of Proper Regulation of Private Detectives through Licensing in Light of BBC News Report: Private Detectives to Need Licence

(PRWEB UK) 31 July 2013

According to the recent BBC News report dated 31 July 2013: Private detectives to need licence, operating as an unlicensed private detective will be illegal from autumn 2014. Home Office plans are to license all investigators through the Security Industry Authority after completing a training course and passing a criminality check. Home Secretary Theresa May said: "It is vital we have proper regulation of private investigators to ensure rigorous standards in this sector and the respect of individuals' rights to privacy.

The BBC News report goes on to say that anyone with a criminal record for data protection offences will not be granted a licence. These offences include unlawful interception of data, accessing data on computers without owners permission, bribery and blagging information from call centres. Under the new law all contractors will need to be licensed and the penalty for operating without a valid licence could be a custodial sentence of six months.

This long awaited move by the government to licence the private detective industry has been well received by Private Investigators London. The regulation of the industry is good news for the many legitimate private detective companies in the UK. Weeding out the rouge investigators that plague the industry is a positive and welcome step promoting trust and credibility in an industry that has received unpopular press coverage in recent years. Regulation is important as it keeps people safe from rouge investigators, gives rules and guidelines that investigators can follow to operate within the law and gives the industry credibility.

Spokesperson from Private Investigators London, Jamie Rower said:

The industry has been crying out for licensing and we at Private Investigators London are delighted by the news, in fact, we are already studying for the exam in the autumn.

Private Investigators London along with their sister company Private Detectives Manchester is a team of highly trained professional and discreet private investigators and detectives with over 35 years experience in the industry. Their understanding and approachable team of male and female detectives are available 24/7 to conduct matrimonial, corporate and private investigation


East Allen Township Volunteer Ambulance (Northampton, PA) Announces Switching to Aladtecs EMS Manager – Improves Regulation Reporting Capabilities

Allentown, PA (PRWEB) January 17, 2013

In an effort to find a better scheduling system for their volunteer based ambulance service, a casual Google search landed Matt Morrow on EMS Managers website. Morrow, Assistant Captain with the East Allen Township Volunteer Ambulance Corps, indicates they outgrew the scheduling system they had been using for many years because it was simply too limiting.

We selected EMS Manager because it has a number of features we were looking for that our previous scheduling program didnt have. Features like sending an email, or text, with the one-click Find Coverage option, personnel certification tracking, and a mobile web application, explains Morrow. Another feature we use frequently is the "Reports" section. The ability to generate custom reports is invaluable for our internal record keeping and regulation requirements. This allows us to track how involved each volunteer is in our organization.

The roster at East Allen Township Volunteer Ambulance has over 40 members from all walks of life...including business people, entrepreneurs and professional EMS personnel who help out during their time off. These volunteers rely on EMS Managers mobile web app because they all have other jobs and they need to be able to utilize the system remotely at anytime and from anywhere.

We do a lot of scheduling on the go and while we are at our "normal jobs. Most administrators, and most users, use smart phones to access EMS Manager. Weve also found the system is easy to use, especially for those who are just now joining the computer age, adds Morrow. Unlike most paid services, as a volunteer company we are not able to staff more than a few days into the future. This system works great for that situation and for the constant changes we make.

Volunteer services often have restricted budgets, so an affordable annual subscription to an online software program like EMS Manager is easier to get approved, and has a faster return on investment.

We rate things price-wise, based on "how many calls will it take to pay for any expenditure. In our case, with just a few routine calls EMS Manager has paid for itself for the entire year, states Morrow. It really does give us the most program for our money and we know it will accommodate us as we continue to grow and as regulations continue to change.

East Allen Township is a small rural area encompassing 14.5 square miles, consisting primarily of farms and small towns in eastern Pennsylvania near Allentown. Their volunteer ambulance service currently serves approximately 5,000 residents. They are also frequently called for mutual aid by their highly populated neighboring communities.
