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.
