Private security provider records are available online by visiting the Information Record Inquiry System (I.R.I.S.) Click the blue button to use I.R.I.S. to search by last name or DPSST issued Private Security Identification Number (PSID).
Records available in I.R.I.S include provider's training, employment, certification and deficiency information. I.R.I.S offers the option to print a profile report. We encourage the use of I.R.I.S for individuals looking for public record information. If I.R.I.S does not provide the information you need, please visit the Records Request Page.
After you have searched for the provider, you can view specific details of a provider by clicking on the provider's name that is hyperlinked on the left in the image shown below to view the certifications, training, and employment records for each provider. The Status column is not related to certification or whether the certification is issued or valid. The Status column is employment status, whether the individual is Active or Inactive with the employer listed.
Note: Certification and licensure records that have passed the required retention period as designed by the Secretary of State's Archive Schedule have been purged and will not be viewable in I.R.I.S.
Alarm monitor professionals, event and entertainment professionals, unarmed professionals, and managers with a “In Process” status and a valid Temporary Work Permit are eligible to provide private security services for the company that issued the Temporary Work Permit while their application is processing.
Below you will find a definition and action required for all deficiencies that show in I.R.I.S. You can use this list to better understand deficiencies that have been recorded for provider records.
