Unlicensed Activity

Identifying unlicensed activity and obtaining compliance from people who are not properly licensed or registered is a high priority for the Bureau. Individuals and businesses that are operating without a license pose a threat to both the industry and the public. The behavior of an unlicensed practitioner often reflects poorly upon the private security industry and can tarnish the industry's reputation. Consumers assume they can afford to be less wary because they are dealing with a regulated industry and with licensed practitioners.
