  • NY Guard with question on how to become an Armed Guard

    Hello,

    I've been a unarmed Security Officer for 7 years in New York State. I'm curious
    on how do you go about becoming an Armed Guard. Do you first apply and get
    a position with a company and they'll help you thru it all or must I first get a
    pistol permit in my county?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    First off, where in NY are you? Not important to the question at hand, but I lived there for 23 years and always like running into some "yankees."

    Anyway, what you need to do is find a security guard school that's certified to teach the 47-hour firearms course and license you through DCJS. Be prepared to drop at least $500 on the entire course, fees and ammunition.
