There is lots of conflicting information online as to how to become a registerd SG in the state of MD. My question is simple: Can I apply as an individual for a securidy guard license without going through a security company?

Why not contact the agency which license security personnel and axe. Probably a 10 second google search.

Also, try posting an intro so we know who you are (as best as online can show..)

I did contact the MD state police and after 7 or  8 attemps, someone picked up the phone and sounded like I had woken her up from her nap. For all those who might be wondering, in MD, only a Seurity Company (employer) may file an application on your behalf.


It's very interesting because every single job posting out here requires the applicant to already hold a "Maryland Security Guard Card".

Probably not a good idea to come to a LEO website and bash officers.  Why don't you call the security company and ask.

Certainly not bashing officers as my own family has a long history of law enforcement service. I was merely stating a fact and and I stand by my statement. I am committed to excellence in my own line of duty and expect the same here. Thank you.

It sounds like you have gotten some sound advice and hopefully it pans out for you. On another note, although I may not have had an issue with the statement that you made about the woman answering her phone, your response to MN108 drew some attention. As for expecting excellence, that is commendable, and you should also strive for excellence, but arrogance should not be included. You shall find that some people do not take too kindly to that type of behavior, and your chances of getting good sound advice is diminished considerably.

I don't think because of a statement like "Sounded like I woke her up from her nap" was made that it constitutes bashing. I don't know about MD but in Alaska the people that answer the phones at the D.P.S. (Department Of Public Safety) are NOT law enforcement but old ladies with very poor attitudes. So I can see why shotokan6 made the comment, especially when someone is just trying to do is obtain informaton and go about thing's the right way. No good deed goes unpunished. Also just because someone made a comment that was clearly not intended to offend anyone it should in NO way diminish the assistance that he should recieve from the people on this board. I know everyone on this board has at one time or another made a comment that someone else would deem offensive in one way or another self included. So everyone should really stop with the *My feeling's got hurt* stuff and help someone that came to you for advice. Thank you.
