You will need this licence 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.
You will need a separate approval to carry firearms or batons.
You may not need 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.
You may be able to apply for a temporary licence of up to one year if you are an interstate visitor and hold an equivalent licence in your home state or territory.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
