As we have said in the past, there is never a time when an agency or industry is truly prepared to deal with harm and loss. This is particularity so in the areas of police, fire, emergency medical services, and security. Nevertheless, as we come to grips with the impact of violence to our industry professionals and our citizens it is important to take the steps required to recognize their service, their successes and in hard times, their sacrifices.

To that end, we have activated our Recognition and Medal program as recent tragic events have once again shaken our industry and awakened our collective senses to the realities of the job that security practitioners face each and every day.

It is our sincerest desire to take any and all necessary steps to acknowledge those whom we license for their dedication and personal sacrifices to the security industry.


Medal of Valor

Medal of Valor

This recognition is designed to address those who are involved in an event that places them in grave danger while in the line of duty.


Combat Cross

Combat Cross

This recognition is designed to address those who are engaged in an instance of grave danger to themselves or others in which their actions are clearly heroic while in the pursuit of thwarting a significant threat to human life. It may involve injury to the officer that is non-life threatening.


Medal of Honor

Medal of Honor

This recognition is designed to honor those individuals who are severely or fatally wounded while in the course and scope of their employment. This line of duty commendation is the highest of all State Board recognition and is distinguished from the Medal of Valor and the Combat Cross by the severity and magnitude of injuries sustained. It is the only award that may be presented posthumously.

    Mr. Fabian

    I am starting a new company Grays Guardian Protective Services, LLC. I have submitted everything and my background is clear. I am the owner of the company and Id like to see if I would be able to schedule to take the Qualifying Exam. Would I have to come to Baton Rouge to take the exam?

      You need to be communicating with the Section Chief of Licensure. If you have not applied for a license with this agency you have not done what is needed. Call 225-272-2310 and ask to speak with Wendy or Bridgette.

      Security officers do not receive badge numbers. Creating one is a violation.

    Im on board. Bringing organization and honor to a profession that is commonly looked at as being rejects from the enforcement agencies goes a long way into not only attracting talent that may go into those industries, but providing a great opportunity for those officers who are the security industry to know that their hard work and sacrifices would be recognized not only by their company owners and peers but by the governing body that regulates the industry.

    Great Job!
