      Wisconsin answers to the Department of Business Regulation, or DPR. We're lumped in with every other licensee, including doctors, nurses, EMTs, and massage therapists.

      There is no such thing as a "Security Company" in Wisconsin. There are "Private Detective Agencies," who can provide "uniformed private security, private police, and private bodyguard" services. The person who is supervising private security operations must be a Private Investigator, and all persons must have a "Private Security Person Permit," which is a 90 dollar state background check. Armed officers must have a 6 dollar permit, and undergo police firearms and defensive tactics training at thair expense.

      Prior to 1997, private security companies were regulated by the Sheriff of the county the agency was located in. Any person may be armed in this state openly, so there was no need for a firearms license. They may still be armed, however, the cities and towns may override that rule.

      Get this: A city may make an ordinance prohibiting firearms within the city limits, and security officers who even drive mobile patrol through that city are in violation. The permit does not grant any specific carry authority nor provide exemption of city ordinances, save that you may carry in a vehicle that is in operation. (Its illegal to have a weapon in a running car up here)

                      Never heard of that, before. Every license issued by the state is issued from one office? I'd fear the lines.

                        Tell me about it.. LOL Actually the majority of their stuff is done via mail... in-person is generally only done for driver's/vehicle licenses, similar to Oregon's DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles)...
                        For some odd reason, Washington decided to have one department handle all types of licenses, then just subdivide it into different sections... it can get downright confusing at times... lol
