Employment in a regulated non-commissioned capacity is permitted only upon submission of a
substantially complete application, as defined in PSB Administrative Rule §35.21(b). In most cases, this
will require, at a minimum, the submission of fingerprints and all required fees.
Employment as a commissioned officer or personal protection officer is not permitted prior to licensure.
Registered or Substantially
Complete Application – Individual has met the above requirements for employment

Not Registered or
Application Incomplete – Individual is no longer registered, has not met the above requirements or does not meet the
standards for licensure and is not eligible for employment by a business licensed by DPS. Those who

held by an Owner/Officer/Partner/Shareholder, Manager or Supervisor are not affected.
