  • PSP off duty work

    Do PSP officers (current) need to be ACT 235 licensed in order to do off duty security work (carrying a gun)?

    I'm going to say no, but you do need permission to work a second job. They may take the job responsibilities into account, and say no. PSP doesn't want to open themselves up to liability with a Trooper taking "off-duty" action.

      According to the web site, police officers need to request exemption. I would think PSP would need to request it as well.


      Full-time police officers applying for basic certification must submit the basic application for agent certification (SP8-200); the Municipal Police Officer Waiver of Training Verification Form (SP8-204); and the Police Officer Exemption Application (SP8-200 C). Both the waiver and exemption form must be signed by the Chief of Police. Officers hired after 1974 must also submit a copy of the physical and psychological exams they had as a prerequisite of employment at their current police department. If one is not available, a letter from the Chief stating both were completed upon employment is acceptable. Full-Time police officers who are renewing their 235 certification must submit the Application for Renewal of Agent Certification (SP8-205) along with the Municipal Police Officer Waiver of Training Verification Form (SP8-204).
      Dispatch, we have a 9-11, Armed Robbery in progress. Seay's Surplus Store, corner People's Drive and 124th Street.

        It's pretty much a mute point as our administrative regulations don't allow off duty-security.

          i used this rule to bypass the act 235 training to obtain the position i have now. anyone with an act 120 certification can do the same as long as their psychological and physical examinations are up to date.

            Ok, I wasn't aware. My dad used to take extra jobs such as bingo hall security for a few extra bucks...but he wasn't PSP.
