Welcome to the Montana Private Security Program

Mission Statement: The mission of the Private Security Program is to protect the health, safety and well-being
of Montana citizens through the regulation and oversight of security alarm installers, private security guards,
private investigators, private investigator trainee's, registered process servers, private security firearms
instructors, electronic security firms, and private security firms. The Department makes every effort to include
relevant and current information pertaining to licensing and regulation on our website. Please contact us if
you need additional information, or to provide comments on how we can improve the website.
    • Applications remain valid for one year under normal circumstances. If you submit your application and an item is missing, our licensing specialist will work with you to complete the application. We do not deny applicants for submitting an incomplete application. By completing the application’s remaining parts, exempting exams, etc., you can get ahead on the licensure process.
    • Online applications are the most efficient application method and allow you to upload your own supplemental forms directly into your application at any time.  Click here to go to our online system to create an account and begin your application.
    • Paying the fee triggers the beginning of the staff review process. Be aware that to verify authenticity, some documents such as exam results, and transcripts must be sent to the department directly from the source and cannot be uploaded by the applicant.
    • Make sure your address and e-mail information are up-to-date. You can update your information at any time by logging into your online account.
    • E-mail is the Department's primary form of communication so a current e-mail helps ensure you stay current on program information.
