The BSIS enforces the licensing of security guards and their employers, through enforcement activity that normally involves multiple CS state agencies.
In December 2012, the BSIS along with local police, Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) and the Department of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) performed an enforcement sweep of a bar in Roseville.
- That night, the bar was closed due to a lack of workers compensation insurance.
- The following night, the bar reopened improperly and the owner was arrested.
- The bar reopened again, posting two unlicensed security guards. The Roseville Police arrested both security guards for being unlicensed guards standing post. One of the guards was found to be carrying cocaine.
What the above enforcement action indicates is:
- Enforcement sweeps can target an establishment multiple times in a short time period.
- Do not stand post as a security guard if you are an unlicensed as you could be arrested.
- Enforcement sweeps not only look for security guard violations, but labor and beverage control violations.
