How to Become a Security Guard in Maine

In Maine, the armed and unarmed security guard does not need to be licensed as long as a licensed security company has chosen to employ him or her. The licensing requirements then fall on the security company. There may be requirements for a weapon permit for armed guards and the company may request that their employees do meet certain requirements.
