ATTENTION NEW APPLICANTS AND RENEWING LICENSEES

AVOID UNNECESSARY DELAYS IN YOUR LICENSE ISSUANCE OR RENEWAL

The Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) is scheduled to transition to the new BreEZe online licensing and enforcement system in January 2016.

The transition to the new system will require a temporary shutdown of all licensing and complaint intake processes for several business days, and could result in delays in processing initial license applications, license renewals, and changes such as name changes or changes of address.

  • License Renewals: Individuals holding a license from BSIS with December 2015 or January 2016 expiration dates who wish to renew their licenses are strongly encouraged to renew as early as possible, preferably before the end of November.
  • New Licenses: Individuals seeking a new license from BSIS are strongly encouraged to apply before November 23, 2015 or after January 2016 to help avoid delays in license issuance.

The new BreEZe system will, among other things, allow online license applications or renewals, allow payment online with a credit card in a secure environment, and allow individuals to track their applications.

We will be posting more information about the new BreEZe system in the coming weeks. Click here for the latest updates.
