Can a licensed security guard company in Texas take assignments in Louisiana if we hire guards that are licensed in LA? Or does the company need to be licensed in LA?

Hello Dustin. We would recommend that you contact the Texas Department of Public Safety, http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/rsd/psb/index.htm, to make sure that you can not re activate your licensing. If you are required to retake your security guard training, we will be more than happy to assist you. Those classes are currently offered in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, Texas. Give us a call at (855)BE-A-Guard – (855)232-4827 any of our agents will be happy to assist you.
I am a retired law enforcement officer moving to Texas from NY. What courses will I need to take to get an armed Security license? Is there any time i have to wait before doing so?
Thank you Rick for your interest in Security Guard Exchange and specifically in the security officer training offered in the state of Texas. In order for you to achieve your stated goal of acquiring your Level III Armed Commissioned Security Officer License, you will first need to begin with your Level II Unarmed Non-Commissioned Security Guard License. There is no waiting time between you taking the Level II Unarmed Non-Commissioned Security Guard License and you taking the Level III Armed Commissioned Security Officer License. Security Guard Exchange can offer the training for both the Level II Unarmed Non-Commissioned Security Officer License and the Level III Armed Commissioned Security Guard License in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, Texas. Feel free to call us at (855)232-4827 – (855)BE-A-GUARD so that one of our agents can help you with your continued choice of a career in Private Law Enforcement.
I just moved from New York and I went through a 8 hours and 16 hours training there, I have been fingerprinted and now I carry my New York security license, I would like to know if I need to go through the training here to get certification for unarmed security guard license, and what I need to get the certification in Texas
Thank you Christopher for your interest in Security Guard Exchange and specifically your interest in the security guard training available in the State of Texas. I recommend that you contact the Texas Department of Public Safety in order to ensure that your existing security guard certification can not be used in Texas. However, I can tell you that most states do not accept another state’s certification on a permanent basis. You will normally have to re-train for the state you are looking to get certified in. If you opt to re-train in Texas, then please give us a telephone call at (855)232-4827 – (855)BE-A-GUARD so that one of our agents can help you further with your private law enforcement training needs.
