Massachusetts: Armed Security Officers
Legislation and Details for Massachusetts
Massachusetts does not presently regulate individual licensing provisions for armed or unarmed officer.
This lack does not imply that security agency or company licenses may require alternative licensing
methods and mechanisms, nor should the reader conclude that regulation does not exist for
other forms of licensure such as detectives or investigators.
At present, Massachusetts only licenses and certifies security agencies, such as Watch and Private Investigators.
For more information on these certification processes, see: Certification Unit
