Oxnard Police Department arrests 11 unlicensed security officers
In a press release distributed this morning, the Oxnard Police Department reported that they arrested 11 unlicensed security officers from United Security Services on August 12 for violating the California Private Security Services Act, which requires all contract security officers in California to posses a vaild guard card, undergo a criminal background check and complete a mandatory 40 hours of training.
CALSAGA understands that Oxnard Police Department reguarly works with the Bureau of Security & Investigative Services (BSIS) on enforcement activity in the city of Oxnard. We applaud both agencies for their enforcement efforts, which undoubtedly goes a long way in professionalizing the industry while protecting public safety and consumers.
This is especially good news for all security firms and their employees in California that work hard to comply with State regulations. Unlicensed activity does nothing but undermine those who are properly licensed and trained.
As many of you know, cracking down on unlicensed activity has been a priority of CALSAGA and BSIS for some time now. The message from BSIS and local law enforcement is clear. If you continue to operate a security firm without a proper license, put officers on post without a guard card, or fail to train your officers, you will evenutally face the consequences.
