Back in December 2017 at Teesside Crown Court, security director Christopher Catchpole, was ordered to pay back proceeds of crime amounting to £63,628.

Catchpole, formerly of Pro-Lock Security Limited based in Durham, had previously been sentenced to 32 months in prison at Teesside Crown Court in June 2017. He was convicted of money laundering, supplying an unlicensed security operative and acting as the director of a security company without an SIA licence.

The judge gave Catchpole three months to pay.  He faces an extra nine months in prison if he fails to produce the money, which will be raised by the sale of property belonging to Catchpole and his wife.

The successful conclusion of the case was the result of a lengthy investigation involving the SIA and the North East Regional Asset Recovery Team (RART).

Repost: Although we don’t do nightclubs, venues etc, I still wanted to post this to get the #AskforAngela known for men and women who could be in vulnerable situations. 

“Over the past fortnight I was approached while playing by a young girl and asked for the first time, "Is Angela working tonight?" - having read about the #AskforAngela initiative I knew instantly what she was referencing, said yes, told her to jump in the DJ booth with me (she was extremely nervous...) and in turn asked the nearest security guard the same question. Luckily, he too knew, and the young girl was escorted through the back of the venue and into an Uber immediately. Her "date" upon returning from the bathroom was asked to leave by management, he without delay turned violent and security stepped-in.

Basically, #AskforAngela is a scheme in place (established in the UK) which aims at reducing sexual violence and vulnerability by providing women and men with a subtle phrase to assist getting them out of potentially dangerous and helpless situations. First-dates, Tinder-dates or frankly getting home alone after a night out can unfortunately (history-proven) be a risk. I urge all DJs, venues, those in hospitality/night-life to look into the concept and educate yourselves and your staff. 

It may seem extreme, but sometimes you may be someone's only option.”
