      LOL I resolve it by finding another job. I think I did that too. This one was soo late when u get paid it's nearly time for your next. They paid every 2 weeks. I suggested direct deposit. "Some of our so's have bounced so many checks they can't get a bank acct" was the reply I received. There remedy was to change the pay date from Friday to Monday. I heard they are still late. It was always the "post offices fault". LOL

        In the District of Columbia, the state licensing authority is the Security Officers Management Branch of the Metropolitan Police Department.

        Commercial Security Companies, Detective Agencies and Propriatary Security Operations are monitored and inspected by members of the Metropolitan Police Department's Security Officers Management Branch.

        Security contractors assigned to government facilities and subject to local jurisdiction are monitored and inspected by the Protective Services Police Department's Uniformed Operations Branch.

        Some SPO's and SO's might not get inspected in the field ever, while others such as those assigned to government facilities can expect to be inspected at least once per shift.

          Its not the division's place to regulate these things. Low pay is market forces, the state regulating how much a guard makes is a disaster in the process. Look at the TSA.

          Constant late pay, you say? REPORT IT TO THE PROPER AUTHORITY. That would be the Department of Labor, NOT the Division of Licensing.

              In WA prior to 1989 counties and cities controlled the licensing and were responsible for policing it...usually have police officers do random spot checks. The state took over licensing in 1989 and I don't believe DOL here has any actual inspectors. The state law is fairly clear about licensing violations and those usually come from police reports and citations.

              One harsh item the state has is the "professional misconduct" part of the law. Anyone can report a security company or officer for alleged misconduct - anything from not having their license with them to carrying a firearm to operating an unlicensed company and it will be investigated rigorously. This was, unfortunately, a favorite tactic to use for some local companies to "dis" start-ups. But as to who does the investigations I don't have any idea
