Should I Become a Private Patrol Operator?
- Are you willing and able to undergo additional security guard training so you can pass an exam? A private patrol operator has to take a licensing exam which consists of two hours of multiple choice questions. The exam covers the Private Securities Act, various other regulations, business knowledge, and security functions, among other things. You’ll have to pass the exam to become a PPO.
- Do you have a good head for business? A private patrol operator not only has the responsibility of providing security services, but also must deal with the legal aspects of running a company on his or her own.
