Georgia security guards are under the jurisdiction of the GEORGIA BOARD OF PRIVATE DETECTIVES AND SECURITY AGENCIES. Unarmed guards/officers with the 24-hour basic security license are not required to register with the state. However, they cannot work independently. Officers must be hired by a business/professional that is registered with the state. Then the officer’s name and license number is listed on the business’ state license to complete the process.

Security agencies like P.A.S.S. PROTECTION SERVICES must also meet requirements set by the state. Agencies have multiple clients with different positions to potentially accommodate the officer’s location and schedule needs.

An officer that would like to start an agency and hire their own officers for clients would need to go through the agency registration process as outlined in the GEORGIA STATE-MANDATED AGENCY REGISTRY link on the COURSES page.

This course is all that is needed to become an Unarmed Security Officer working legally in Georgia.
