Can an applicant for Armed or Unarmed Security Officer work prior to issuance of the registration card?

Mona Wynne -

Pending issuance, denial or renewal of a registration card by the Commissioner, the applicant may work as an unarmed security guard/officer, if the applicant submits a completed application form, three (3) sets of classifiable fingerprints, three (3) sets of head-and-shoulder photographs taken within the last six (6) months and the application fee to the commissioner, and the applicant keeps a copy of the completed application form on the applicant's person while on duty.

The applicant may only work using the completed application form for seventy-five (75) business days from the date that the completed application form, three (3) sets of classifiable fingerprints, three (3) sets of head-and-shoulder photographs taken within the last six (6) months and the application fee are received by the Commissioner, pending the issuance or denial of the registration card by the commissioner.

A qualified applicant may receive a conditional armed registration card pending receipt of the federal bureau of investigation report, by paying an additional fifteen ($15.00) fee.  The conditional registration is normally not needed if the applicant submits fingerprints electronically.
