David Chandler, CALSAGA President
Do you have a copy of the certificate for Powers to Arrest training on file for all of your officers? If not, you are in violation of section 7583.6e2 of the Business and Professions Code. I encourage you to rectify the issue immediately. If a certificate cannot be obtained, it is recommended that you offer the PTA training to your officers so that a certificate may be generated. Don’t forget that the regulations are not satisfied until the officer has completed the Powers to Arrest test with a score of 100 percent.
CALSAGA member companies enjoy the benefit of unlimited access to the Security Officer Training Database. The database allows users to create certificates that are BSIS-approved and satisfy the certificate requirements established in the B&P Code. If you have questions about the database or to get started utilizing this Member Benefit, contact Association Manager Kate Wallace at email@example.com.
