The number one question we get is what is a California guard card and how do I get one. A California guard card also known as guard registration is a licensure provided by the state of California to those working within the security industry protecting people or property while interacting with the general public. There are 3 steps one must complete in order to get a guard card. The first step is complete the BSIS Security Guard Card Course known as Powers to Arrest, Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism Awareness. The second step is to complete a Live Scan Service Request (Electronic Fingerprints) at a local live scan provider. Step 3 the final step is to submit your application to the BSIS.By law you must obtain guard registration for both you and your employer could possibly suffer legal pitted royalties and fines as well as increase your civil liability in regard to lawsuit.
