Security Licensing / DOPL

Certification in this training program does not automatically authorize an individual to carry or use batons. It is the responsibility of the individual student to obtain permission from their agency or company to carry any less-lethal device and follow all laws.
The information contained within this training program may only be used by security officers while in the performance of official duties. Any unauthorized, illegal, or unethical use of the information in this training program is prohibited.
Although every effort has been made for this training course, manual, and related materials to be complete and accurate, it is impossible to predict, discuss or plan for every circumstance or situation which might arise in the course of training, or when encountering a resistive or aggressive individual. Each trainee assumes the risk of loss, injury, and damages associated with this training and the use of the information obtained through this program.
Therefore, the trainee must always take into consideration the trainee’s experience, physical abilities, professional responsibilities, agency procedures, legal requirements and the recommendations and techniques contained in this training course, manual, and related materials, before deciding which techniques should be used and under what circumstances.

Currently there is no state certificate or permit required for a security officer to carry a baton or handcuffs in Utah. However, most contract security companies as well as their clients have policies which require a security officer to obtain proper training and certification in the use of all less lethal devices and restraints such as Baton, Taser, OC Spray and Handcuffs before they can be carried or used by a security officer.
If a licensed security officer abuses and/or fails to use these items correctly, the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) could file criminal charges against the security officer and revoke his/her license. You may also be terminated by your employer and open yourself, your employer and client to Civil lawsuits. You must be aware of the following:
