The Private Security Certification and Private Investigator Licensing programs are mandated by the Oregon legislature to establish and enforce minimum standards for all private security professionals and private investigators in the state. The minimum standards for each program are defined in Oregon Administrative Rule Divisions 60 & 61.
These quarterly reviews of applicants and providers who violated those minimum standards is meant to provide insight into the types of disqualifiers that DPSST is seeing in revocation, denial, or suspension of certification and licensure. The following cases are some of the circumstances that have resulted in consideration of revocation, denial or suspension of certifications and/or licenses by DPSST during the last quarter.
The Department continues to ensure that certified private security professionals and private investigators meet the minimum standards established by the legislature.
These bulletins will be available for one calendar year on this website.
