The 8-hour training program is divided into two parts: Weapons of Mass Destruction and Power to Arrest. These classes inform you about the existing threats and how to spot them, along with your duty to protect others and also the actions to take in an emergency.
This step involves filling in the security guard card form along with the necessary documents to support your claims. Bureau of Security and Investigative Services receives your application electronically and then conducts a deep evaluation of your details. We help you fill the security guard card application with all the necessary information and ensure that your application is up to the mark. A correctly filled application reduces the chances of reapplying for the security guard card again and again and also saves your money.
The initial paperwork holds no value if you don’t complete the Live Scan process of registering your fingerprints. We facilitate live scans to register your fingerprints that are then forwarded to the BSIS for further scrutiny and identity matching. There are three copies of the form that you have to print before getting a live scan. A $32 DOJ fingerprint processing fee and a $17 FBI fee, a total of which is around 50 dollars, have to be paid to process your fingerprints. Any live scan done by us saves you the additional fees to be paid at Live Scan sites, usually around 13 dollars.
We help you submit the complete application along with every requested document and verification. You can rest assured of the application approval as we leave no corners unturned to make it a success. The application processing and support take some time, but you can expect the online security guard card letter in a week.

Until then, you can comfortably use the printout of the security guard card from the website as proof.
