    Depends on your states regulations; but probably not.

    I would think that would depend on your state laws and your employer.

    Unless your employer authorizes it I would think not. Their contracts with individual clients may dictate which customers want or don’t want armed guards. The liability and potential exposure to claims is usually the driving factor.

    I don't think so. Each state is different. I would check with your employer or State Attorney General's Office.

    Depends on your state laws. I believe most states do not recognize a CHP (or whatever your state calls it) for armed security work. Virginia I believe requires DOJ Cert. training for armed security.

    BTW welcome to the forum.

    PM sent. Welcome to the forum. In Virginia the state agency that certifies Security Officers (Armed or Unarmed) is the Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).

    Each state is different. In SC, you may wear a sidearm at your place of employment with the permission of your employer. HOWEVER, persons employed as "armed security guards" must be licensed by the state. A simple CWP won't do it.

    Like others said, contact the State Attorney General's Office and ask; I should not trust what my employer says.

    It's totally up to the company you're working for. They have their own standards and most even have their own weapons/ammo that you carry. Also, most will prohibit you from carrying your CCW on the job/property even as backup.

    It depends on your state, but I doubt it... Most states have licensing requirements for armed security guards...
