BSIS Update

Established by SB 1196 all security officers applying for a new firearms permit must have a computerized assessment from a state approved testing center. Originally the assessments were to be implemented on January 1, 2018; the assessment is now not expected to be implemented until July 1, 2018.

For the first time in 15 years the BSIS will introduce fee adjustments for both individual and company licenses for initial applications and renewals. CALSAGA Staff and Executive Committee worked closely with the bureau to ensure that the increases were fair and equitable. Fee increases will be effective July 1, 2018.

CALSAGA Executive Director Roy Rahn serves on the Advisory Board for the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services. If you have questions or concerns that you would like brought before the advisory board, please contact Roy Rahn at
