Over the last decade there has been a dramatic increase in legislation related to private and proprietary security. CALSAGA continues to aggressively advance our legislative advocacy efforts, including employing a full-time lobbyist in Sacramento.
CALSAGA plans seminars in Northern and Southern California on the issues that are important to our members and their businesses. Our Annual Conference brings together industry experts and private security companies to discuss topics concerning the security industry, and provides members with the opportunity to network with peers from across the state.
CALSAGA offers a complete training program to help Private Patrol Operators (PPO) comply with AB 2880 training regulations, as well as a full program for Proprietary Security Employers (PSE) to train their officers. In addition to the training modules, CALSAGA also offers an online database system to track your officers’ training and print out serialized certificates.

CALSAGA has a close working relationship with BSIS and often partners with the Chief and staff to discuss programs to improve public and consumer safety. Our team will serve as an advocate to the BSIS and Department of Consumer Affairs on your behalf.
Political Action and Activity
Many of those targeting our industry are among the most politically powerful entities in California. Our Security Political Action Committee (PAC) helps support elected officials and candidates who are proponents of CALSAGA and our industry. Read more about our Legislative Advocacy.
CALSAGA strives to disseminate the latest industry news; member updates from the BSIS and CALSAGA are disseminated via email, social networking mediums such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and the CALSAGA blog.
