Security Guard Training


The Security Guard Act of 1992 mandates the training and registration of security guards and the approval of private security training schools. The Act also requires that certain private security training must be approved and that all private security trainers must be certified. The Division of Criminal Justice Services, Office of Public Safety provides administrative oversight for private security training in New York State. The New York State Department of State, Division of Licensing Services has oversight responsibility for the registration of all security guards.

If you have questions about registration, you must direct them to the Star Security Training. You can reach them by phone at (718) 773-5000 You can also get answers to many of your licensing questions at the Department of State web site.
