In Pennsylvania the Pa Act 235 Lethal Weapons Act is our Armed Security Certification from the state. I had attained this prior to be hired at Securitas. It’s optional to have the lethal cert or unarmed. I was not told that I needed one upon hiring. Only applied to Pinkerton version of Securitas Armed Mobile Division which also requires a License To Carry loaded in a vehicle.

Technically yes, they direct you to the locations for the fingerprints which is the livescan and depending on where you get it. It ranges from 50-70 dollars out of your own pocket of course. Then they direct you to an online website to do the 8 hour training and that cost about 24 dollars out of your own pocket. Once you turn the fingerprints in and the 8 hour course papers. They offer you pay for your background check that is close to 80 dollars but you must pay them back in increments through your paycheck and if you don't pass the background you owe the company 100 dollars that must be paid in a certain amount of time.

The company is big company but they failed to implement a mental screening program. That is how they lose thier prime.clients because they have no program to mental health screening. The big ceo s.should act now coz they lost allot of million dollar accounts. They should.screen their personnels right. Coz.they represent the company itself. They cannot distinguished who are crazy but who.acts normally.themselves. they found.out it s too late. The. COntracts are not.renewed.
