You will require this licence if you intend to act as a security officer. A security officer is someone who is paid to watch, guard or protect any property and sometimes is referred to as a security guard or loss prevention officer.
Please note that a separate approval is required if you intend to carry firearms or batons.
You may not require this licence if you are employed by one employer only (who is not a security agent) to watch or guard their property without the use of weapons.
If you are an interstate visitor and hold an equivalent licence in your home state or territory, you may be able to apply for a temporary licence of up to one year. Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
