When you get your CA Guard Card it is a part of your receipt that comes from the BSIS. You have to cut out the card from the paper receipt. It is important that you protect your Guard Card from damage as you have to pay to get a replacement Guard Card.
The best way to protect it is to put it in a plastic sleeve, which will prevent it from getting dirty and wearing away in your. Or you can put it in a plastic name tag holder and pin it to your uniform. However, if you forget to take it off your uniform before it is laundered, you will ruin your Guard Card. Don’t laminate your Guard Card as it would be harder to tell if it was a valid license during an BSIS inspection.
