Hopefully a few of you have your private security license and can give me some advice.
1. Do you need to fill out the application for the license when you already have a job lined up or can you get it right away for future jobs? I'm aware that it expires on August 31 of every even-numbered year and needs to be renewed but I saw a piece of paper on the application that asks about your employer.
2. I do not have any misdemeanors or felonies. The only thing I have on my record is a "disorderly conduct on UW lands" (non-domestic) from when I was young. It only results in a fine of money. This shouldn't stop me from getting my license will it?
3. This is the only question on the application I'm confused with:
"Have you EVER been convicted of a VIOLATION of any federal, state or local law or municipal ordinance
that is punishable by a fine or forfeiture in this or any other state? If YES, complete and attach Form #2252,
Convictions and Pending Charges."
Do I say yes to this even tho I never got a misdemeanor or felony? Does a "violation" mean anything you ever plead guilty to? Will this have any impact on me getting my license? I can buy guns and got my CC permit with no problems, is this background check any stricter?
4. Do I need any specific training in order to apply for the license? Or do you get trained by the people you are going to be working for?
I am looking to get all the information I can from here before I contact them and ask about it.
