Private investigators and security guards licensing

The Ministry of Justice is currently responsible for administering the licensing of private investigators and security guards.

From 31 October 2011, the Registrar will no longer have the powers to consider any applications made to it as these functions have transferred in full to the Private Security Personnel Licensing Authority.

After 31 October 2011 any applications or disciplinary proceedings that were lodged with the Registrar but are still to be completed will be transferred to the Private Security Personnel Licensing Authority. All applications must now be made to the Private Security Personnel Licensing Authority.
