As far as I knew to work security in either Nassau or Suffolk county, Long Island, NY a security license was not necessary. Has this policy changed in the last year? If anyone has info on that please let me know. Thanks in advance

be careful countless people are being scammed with Security Guard job postings on craigslist and other places,

When you get hooked in their little scam, the tell you that you need to give then about 1200 dollars to get you certified in Metal detector, CPR, pre-assignment, 16 hour on the job training, loss prevention, certificate of fitness and sometime even try to hook you into paying them as much as an extra $500 for a NYC gun permit
In conclusion, try to avid this security guard scams in craigslist for they can be very costly.

There needs to be a place online where the basic information is posted... all I am looking for is places where I can get the certifications taken care of, and licensing, without being ripped off.

I KNOW FOR A FACT there are places out there that pay for licensing or at least take it out of your checks. This is ridiculous and bull$hit. All we want to do is work, and we are being put through the meat grinder for it, perhaps New York's most unfortunate groups, that aren't trying to hustle and scam other people but are just trying to make an honest living, and they keep cutting our legs out from under us.

Help?!?..... Because this whole process, and the nature of living in New York, is all going to $hit. WOW, this life. I just recently moved back here from the Midwest, and I can tell you that it's pretty much just easier damn near anyplace else. My own cousin is in Pittsburgh working for Allied Barton, and he didn't have to take ONE class.

How can the fingerprints be free, or included in the $25.00 fee when everyone has to get their fingerprints taken electronically for a fee of $106.00

i do not charge for the nys package...fact: security companies do not have to pay for the nys applications or finger prints ...although it is true the state charges for processing your fingerprints ....some companies charge you additonal fees and what not . we do not .example i have interviewed about 7 people this week all of which paid different fees for the same 8hr cert courses one person even paid as much as $350 in total just to get the 8hr

I agree with you in that some schools were charging outrageous prices for the package, and they were charging extra to take fingerprints. My point is that since 1/1/10 the inked fingerprint cards are not accepted. All applicants must use the NYS fingerprint vendor (L-1 Enrollment Services) to have their fingerprints taken electronically. The fingerprint fee is $106.00 and the vendor can't charge any more or any less. Therefore, how can you say you offer free fingerprints when you can't do the fingerprints anymore, unless you are an authorized vendor. And if you are an authorized vendor, the $106.00 fee is the same for everyone.

I don't think this was an issue of not understanding each other. In the three comments you posted directly before I first responded, you used the terms "including fingerprints", "with fingerprints", "and fingerprinting". I'm glad that you did correct yourself to let people know that you can not fingerprint them.

If you go to the NYS Department of State homepage and click on the "Electronic Fingerprinting" icon, it explains the whole process. NYS has entered into a contract with a company named L-1 ENROLLMENT SERVICES to provide the electronic fingerprints. There are locations all over the state where the fingerprints can be taken. I believe alot of these locations are UPS stores and Minuteman Press stores because L-1 already had some type of business relationship with these entities. It adds an extra step to the application process now because instead of someone like yourself providing the fingerprint cards and rolling the inked prints, they now have to go to one of these sites for the electronic prints. They pay the $106.00 fingerprint fee at the fingerprint location and are issued a receipt. The completed application package now consists of the completed application, the 8-Hr. Pre-assignment certificate, the fingerprint receipt, and a $36.00 application fee to the NYS Department of State.

Its crazy when your trying to make a honest living.Why do we have go through all these obstacles,inorder to obtain a security Lic. You have B.S people that been in this profession for years, you think they would give the ins and outs? No. They just give you half ass B.S. Information,so they can keep it for them. People do your own research, Learn this B.S. game,because that's all it has become. Get info from true genuine people, that really have the facts. But make sure that you follow up on the info,that was passed on too you. And stop Hogging the spot light people, when comes to info. Share and it along.

You do not need to be a resident of New York to get your security license in New York. I have several co-workers who live in New Jersey & Pennsylvania that have New York security guard licenses.

I don't know who you dealt with, but nobody has to jump through hopps to obtain simple information to obtain a security guard license. There are many security guard companies that will take care of that for you or you can simply look in the news paper where you will find schools to obtain this license.Just for the record though, not everybody is trying to stand in your way.You just need to observe people for who they are.

So i just sent out for my Security License, anyone know how long it will take for them to mail it back to me?

Security Instructor in New York, New York said: If you have your 8 and 16 hour courses, then the only thing that comes next is for you to apply for the security license. You have to send the following to the NYS Department of State:

- completed NYS application for security guard
- a set of your fingerprints
- an original copy of the 8 hour pre-assignment certificate
- $36.00 money order to NYS Department of State
- $105.75 money order to L-1 Enrollment Services (NYS's fingerprint vendor)
SEND EVERYTHING TO THE NYS DEPARTMENT OF STATE

Please note that until 12/31/09 there are two ways to have the fingerprints done. You can have the traditional inked fingerprints taken or you can go to a site operated by the State's fingerprint vendor, L-1 Enrollment Services, and have the fingerprints taken electronically. After 1/1/10 the fingerprints will have to be done electronically. Go to the Department of State web site for a link to L-1 Enrollment Services and their locations.
