Armed Agencies

 Armed roster form and instructions are now available

on our new page 

Pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute §32-2632D, armed security guard agencies are required to submit monthly armed rosters to the Arizona Department of Public Safety’s Licensing Unit.  Effective July 1, 2013 the Licensing Investigations Unit has taken over the responsibility of collecting these monthly reports.  In addition, they have created a single use form that will capture all required information and will eliminate the need to use the three separate forms that have been required up until now. A copy of the new form is now available online on the Licensing website as well as instructions on how to complete the form.  Please discontinue using any other versions of the roster.  The new form should make reporting a whole lot easier. Please call the Licensing Investigations Unit if you have any questions regarding the new form or reporting procedures.
