License Must be Carried and Badge Must be Displayed While Working
Excise and Licenses will email a professional license to all security guards. This license (or a clear picture of the professional license) must be carried by the security guard at all times during which the security guard is working.
The permanent security guard badge issued by Excise and Licenses must be worn on the outermost part of their uniform or clothing in a clearly visible manner at all times during which the security guard is working. If a badge is lost or damaged, a replacement badge can be requested online.
Changes in Employment or Endorsements
If a guard stops working for a particular employer or stops exercising the privileges of any endorsement (firearm, plainclothes, or explosive detection canine) they must file an online license amendment application notifying Excise and Licenses of the change within 72 hours
If a guard wishes to start working for a new employer or begin exercising the privileges of any endorsement (firearm, plainclothes, or explosive detection canine), they must file an online amendment application with Excise and Licenses and have the application approved before making the proposed change.
Requirement to Notify the Department of Convictions or Use of Force Resulting in Bodily Harm
If a guard is convicted of a crime or engages in the use of force which results in bodily harm, they must file an online amendment application notifying Excise and Licenses within 72 hours.
Requirement to Keep Contact Information Up to Date
If a security guard's contact information changes, they must file an online amendment application notifying Excise and Licenses of the change.
Requirement to Renew Annually
Professional licenses and any accompanying endorsements expire annually. It is unlawful for a guard to work with an expired license. Renewal applications must be filed online with Excise and Licenses before a license expires.
