Armed Security Guard Laws By State

Armed Security Guard Laws for Every U.S. State

The following table of links on Security Guard Training gives you a State-by-State listing of the Laws and Legislation governing armed security guards all across the U.S.

Dan (that’s me) and Guy do our level best to stay on top of current requirements for each State.

Use the following pages of information as a reliable guide but always check with your local government agency or the licensing State Board before sending off your application form.

For people training to be armed security guards it is vitally important to always pay attention to the details and individual requirements because as we all know, government agencies are known for being sticklers on the details and they don't mess around.
