The region does not provide state-issued authorization to residents. Yet, the Department of Public Safety gives ID cards to employees for legal operation. Note that the board issues credentials under the name of a certain company. Thus, people can use their credentials while working for a private agency. However, if they want to work for more than one agency, they should get a second card.

Officers might carry a weapon with them while working. They might also operate without any type of equipment. The candidates for an unarmed guard certificate should correspond to several points. They must:

To complete the registration, people should pay a $10 fee. While delivering the permanent document, the board provides temporary credentials. They are valid for two weeks.

Private safety licenses

Peace officers cannot have personal safety allowances. However, they can operate a personal business under the guidance of an executive. The fee is $100.
