Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Private Detective, Private Alarm, Private Security, Fingerprint Vendor, and Locksmith Act of 2004. In a provision requiring training for registered employees of a private detective agency within 30 days of their employment, specifies that the training may be classroom-based or online Internet-based and removes certain topics that must be included in that training. Provides that registered employees of a private detective agency and private detectives shall complete an additional 8 hours of annual training each calendar year. Provides that private security contractors shall complete an additional 4 hours of annual training each calendar year. Provides that classroom basic training for private security contractors may be provided in a classroom setting or may be Internet-based online or other supervised computerized training. Provides that if a private security contractor owns or is employed by a private security contractor agency, the private security contractor agency shall maintain a record of the annual training and must make the record of annual training available to the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation upon request. Provides that a licensee applying for a firearm control card must complete a firearm training course consisting of 48 hours (rather than 40 hours) of training. Provides that a licensee or employee in possession of a valid firearm control card shall complete an additional 8 hours of refresher training each calendar year. Requires that commercial or industrial operations that employ one or more persons (rather than 5 or more persons) shall register their security forces with the Department and that registration subjects the security force to certain requirements. Makes other changes. Amends the Criminal Code of 2012 to make conforming changes.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: In provisions amending the Private Detective, Private Alarm, Private Security, Fingerprint Vendor, and Locksmith Act of 2004, provides that training for registered employees of a private detective agency, private detectives, and private security contractors may be provided in a classroom or seminar setting or via Internet-based online learning programs (rather than in a classroom setting or may be Internet-based online or other supervised computerized training); provides that the original form or a copy (rather than the form) that certifies that the employee successfully completed basic and annual training shall be placed in the employee's file with the employer for the period the employee remains with the employer (and makes conforming changes); and makes other changes. In provisions amending the Criminal Code of 2012, removes language that provides that specified provisions concerning the unlawful use of a weapon do not apply to an athlete's possession, transport on official Olympic and Paralympic transit systems established for athletes, or use of competition firearms sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee, the International Shooting Sport Federation, or USA Shooting in connection with such athlete's training for and participation in shooting competitions at the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games and sanctioned test events leading up to the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games; specifies that, for certain security guards, 20 hours of training for a security officer and 28 (rather than 20) hours of firearm training are required to qualify for an exemption; and makes conforming changes.
