security guard applications will be rejected.
Armed roster form and
instructions are now available
on our new page
Pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute
armed security guard agencies are required to submit monthly armed rosters to
the Arizona Department of Public Safety’s Licensing Unit. Effective July 1,
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.
