A vehicle endorsement allows a private security employer to authorize their security guards to use vehicles during the performance of security services. A vehicle endorsement is required whether the vehicles are owned by the employer, the guards, or another entity.
A private security employer can apply for this endorsement by submitting a request for vehicle endorsement(PDF, 900KB) form. Private security employers will provide photographs or renderings of proposed vehicle design(s). They are then reviewed to determine ordinance compliance. Remember:
- Each vehicle design must be submitted for review and approval before using it.
- A new vehicle design must be submitted for any non-identical set of verbiage, font, decal, and/or special paint design.
- Once approved, it can be used on any vehicle, regardless of the make and model.
If the company wants to have multiple vehicle designs approved, it needs to submit a distinct request for vehicle endorsement(PDF, 900KB) form for each one.
