Hello Reginald,

A gentleman I train with (martial arts) provides private security for clients. I can talk to him and see if he can provide you some insight. Send me a connection request on LinkedIn and I will talk to him.

In Texas go to

“The Department of Public Safety (DPS) regulates the private security profession in Texas. DPS protects the public by conducting fingerprint-based background checks on applicants, investigating and resolving complaints, and taking disciplinary action against licensees or seeking criminal prosecution of those who perform private security services without a license.

The private security profession includes armed and unarmed security guards, personal protection officers, private investigators, alarm systems installers and monitors, armored car couriers, electronic access control device installers, and locksmiths. DPS regulates the private security profession under the authority of the Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 1702 and the related administrative rules.”

Hope this helps. Good luck
