Wearing SIA Badge on Belt Clip

Settle an argument.

It is legal to display/wear your SIA badge hanging from a belt clip. My friend say the only 2 places you can wear the SIA badge is on the arm or around the neck and those 2 identify the wearer as a licence holder.

It depends on a couple things,

Firstly do you mean whilst working as a DS?

If so it them depends mostly on the local police, and their interpretation of “Clearly Visible”

I have worn my license on my belt for many years, and only once had an issue with it which I argued as the holder is bright orange it is clearly visible the PC spoke with the local licensing sergeant, who agreed with me and that was it.
