    The second I read the question I was going to recommend that the OP get in touch with BC! He's our resident expert on such matters.

    I dont know the Texas law, but here, proprietary security (employed by the protected party, not a 3rd party company) does not require any type of licensing. If this is the same case in TX, they wouldnt have a license number to put on the vehicles.

    I don't really think any university would open themselves up to serious legal action like this.

I am curious as I was asked to join their force and am hesitant until I can get clarification. Anyone who can direct me to that part of the law, or knows for sure, would be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks
