THE NORMAL PROCESS

The normal process to start a licensed security company in Georgia requires the applicant to have at least 2 years of supervisory experience or law enforcement experience. If you qualify, you would submit a $100.00 application fee and a $500.00 licensing fee. If approved you would then pay $125.00 to take a written exam. Once you pass the written exam you would have to obtain either a $25,000.00 surety bond which costs about $250.00 a year and/or general liability insurance which costs $3800.00 to $6,000.00 a year and then you will need to renew your license every two years at $500.00. So, the normal costs to get started would be about $4300.00; not including uniforms and equipment. The problem is some people do not qualify for and/or cannot afford the licensing process to get started and that's we come in. See our process below.
