Security Guard Searching On Stairway With Flashlight_edited

ARIZONA SECURITY GUARD TRAINING 

 
In the State of Arizona, you must be registered with the Department of Public Safety (DPS) if you work for a security guard agency that pays you to provide security guard services to other companies. Until you are registered by DPS, you cannot wear a uniform and/or stand post as a Security Guard. Licenses and/or registrations from other states are not recognized in Arizona. Unless you fall under one of the Exceptions in ARS §32-2606, providing security guard services without a license and/or registration is a class 1 misdemeanor. Additionally, a violation of these regulations can prevent you from obtaining a license and/or registration in the future. You do not need a registration certificate if you work for a proprietary company as explained in Exceptions. A proprietary company pays you to be their security guard.
