Private security act 2004. Only obliged to give information to Garda or PSA/Revenue. It's so the authorities can regulate and do a quick visual check, not for the public. And the PSA have no remit in complaints about behaviour.

ID has to be on display above waist and below neck AFAIK, anytime I've been asked I've no problem giving it. If they want my number good luck to them, but your under no obligation to give any details to members of public, once the badge is on display your covered.


Since the 1st September 2009, all licensed individuals must wear an identity badge at all times while providing a security service. This is a legal reguirement and is set down in section 30 of the Private Security Services Act 2004. Failure to wear a badge may result in you being prosecuted and facing a fine of up to €3,000.

The identity badge must be clearly visible at all times and displayed on the upper torso (above the stomach and below the neck). The following is not acceptable:

Hanging the badge from a belt around the waist.
Clipping the badge behind a neck tie.
Placing the badge in a shirt pocket or jacket pocket.
Placing the badge under a jumper or jacket.
Failure to wear the badge in the correct manner may result in your licence being revoked.
