UPDATE 12/30/2015

Subject: Applying for Multiple Initial or Additional Company Licenses in BreEZe
Date: 12/30/2015 10:15:35 A.M. Pacific Standard Time
From: emailbsis@DCA.CA.GOV

Important Licensing Information for Those Applying for Multiple Initial or Additional Company Licenses
If you plan on applying for a Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) company license using your BreEZe online account AFTER you have linked one or more company license types to your BreEZe account, you must submit a hard copy of the new company application to the Bureau.
For example, if you have already linked a Private Patrol Operator (PPO) license to your BreEZe account but want to also apply for a Private Investigator (PI) license, you must submit a paper PI application to the Bureau. Once the license is issued by the Bureau, you will be able to link the new license to your BreEZe online account.

To submit a hardcopy application, visit the Bureau’s website here, download or print the application for the new company license, and mail the completed and signed paper application to Bureau of Security & Investigative Services, P.O. Box 989002, West Sacramento, CA 95798-9002.
Email BSIS at bsis@dca.ca.gov if you have questions regarding this matter.

Updated 01/07/2016

Online Licensing No Longer Available For Use
The Bureau’s security guard online licensing system was permanently shut down on Tuesday, January 5, 2016. Security guards who have utilized the existing online licensing system and who want to use BreEZe for their future online licensing activities will need to establish a new user profile and password to access their license information through BreEZe. New BreEZe accounts can be established only after BSIS’ transition to BreEZe on January 19, 2016.
License Service Interruptions
In preparation of the Bureau’s transition to the Department of Consumer Affair’s new BreEZe Online Licensing and Enforcement System (BreEZe), the Bureau’s current licensing and enforcement systems will be shut down on January 14, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. On January 19, 2016, the Bureau’s transition to BreEZe will be complete. During the transition period, the Bureau will not carry out any licensing activities to allow for the successful migration of data from the current systems to BreEZe nor will it be able to receive complaints.
While the Bureau has taken all steps to minimize the impact of the transition, there may be slight delays in all license-related processing activities (applications, renewals, name changes, address change, etc.) as a result of the down time.
BreEZe Launch
The BreEZe Online Licensing and Enforcement System will be available for use on January 19, 2016.
BreEZe functionalities (for most BSIS license types) include submitting:
  • initial and renewal online applications,
  • name and address changes,
  • a request for a duplicate license,
  • payments online via a secure system, and
  • adding calibers to a Firearms Permit.
To learn more about BreEZe, including tutorials on how to create a profile, submit applications (initial and renewal), file a complaint, etc. click here. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


UPDATE 01/13/2016



This is a reminder that the Bureau’s current licensing and enforcement systems will shut down tomorrow, January 14, 2016 at 5:00 p.m., as a result of the Bureau’s transition to the Department of Consumer Affair’s new BreEZe Online Licensing and Enforcement System (BreEZe). On January 19, 2016, the Bureau’s transition to BreEZe will be complete. During the transition period, the Bureau will not carry out any licensing activities to allow for the successful migration of data from the current systems to BreEZe nor will it be able to receive complaints.
While the Bureau has taken all steps to minimize the impact of the transition, there may be slight delays in all license-related processing activities (applications, renewals, name changes, address change, etc.) as a result of the down time.
The transition will also impact information available on the Bureau's Verify a License webpage. Information will be current as of January 14, 2016. The information will be updated and available on January 20, 2016.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE 01/19/2016

The Bureau has completed its transition to the BreEZe Online Licensing and Enforcement system. In order for a BSIS license applicant or licensee to use the BreEZe system, he or she must first register with BreEZe to establish a unique account.
The Bureau encourages you to visit the BSIS website to learn more about BreEZe including how to register to establish and account with BreEZe, BreEZe functionalities relating to BSIS licenses, BreEZe tutorials, and general information regarding the Bureau’s transition to BreEZe.
Please note that the Bureau’s processing times for initial and renewal license applications may be longer than the normal 4 to 6 weeks time period at this time as a result of the Bureau’s transition to BreEZe.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*************************************************************

Update 02/05/2016

The BreEZe online system requires an email address in order to establish a unique BreEZe account. Once an email address has been associated with one BreEZe account, it cannot be used to establish another BreEZe account. This is a program integrity issue and a safeguard to protect the applicant’s or licensee’s BreEZe account information. If you have questions regarding the use of an email address with BreEZe, please email bsis@dca.ca.gov.

Update 03/02/16


There's still time left to take the online 2016 Occupational Analysis (OA) survey regarding the repossession profession. March 4, 2016 is the last day to complete the survey.
Use the following link to access the survey:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Repo_OA2016
The Survey Web-link Password is: repo2016 (all lower case)
You will need to provide your RA License # to take the survey.
About the Survey:
The Bureau is responsible for developing examinations to test applicant’s skills for licensure in California. The development of an examination begins with an occupational analysis which is a method for identifying the tasks performed in a profession and the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to perform the job. The OA is only conducted every five to seven years and the results are very important to the development of the written exams.
Workshops with Repossession Agency (RA) Qualified Managers (QM) have been held in Sacramento, conducted by the Office of Professional Examination Services (OPES). As a result of their efforts, a survey questionnaire has been developed and we invite you to participate in evaluating the 2016 OA as it relates to the current practice of the Repossession industry. Your response will be combined with responses of other RA Qualified Manager professionals to determine the tasks and knowledge needed for independent practice. Your individual responses will be kept confidential.
Again, we appreciate your dedication to your profession and to our mission of protecting the consumers of California by licensing qualified and competent providers.

Subject: Adding Calibers to an Existing Firearms Permit



This notice follows up the Bureau’s advisement in June 2016 that it had
suspended the practice of adding a caliber to a current BSIS Firearms
Permit because the process being used was not specified in law.

After extensive analysis of the laws and regulations, the Bureau has
determined that the only legal pathway to add a caliber to an existing firearms
permit under current Bureau law and regulations is for the permit holder to
complete the course of training in the carrying and use of a firearm required
to obtain an initial firearm permit, as prescribed by, Title 16, Division 7,
Section 635 of the California Code of Regulations.

Specifically:
Completion of at least 8 hours of classroom instruction on the carrying and use of a firearm,
Passing a Bureau-approved written firearm exam with a minimum score of 85%, and
Discharging 50 rounds a minimum of two (2) times,
one (1) round for practice and one (1) round for score.
Pursuant to Business and Professions Code sections 7583.2(f) and 7599.40,
the Bureau has developed the Certificate of Proficiency in Specified Caliber(s)
and Request for Replacement Permit form.
The form can be found on the Bureau's website at http://www.bsis.ca.gov/forms_pubs/proficiency_cert.pdf and additional

Subject: Reminder to Use New Firearms Permit Applications



This is a reminder that all firearm requalifications completed on or after September 1, 2016 to renew a firearms permit must be completed on the new Firearms Permit Renewal Application (rev. 5/2016) form. The Bureau will continue to accept and process renewal requalifications that were completed prior to September 1, 2016 on the Application for Firearms Permit (rev. 11/2014) form. As such you may be submitting a firearms permit renewal with a portion of the requalifications on the old form and a portion on the new form.
By law, a Firearms Permit Renewal Application must be submitted at least 60 days before the expiration date of the permit. However, the renewal application should not be submitted sooner than 90 days before expiration. The Bureau encourages firearms permit holders to utilize the Department of Consumer Affairs’ online BreEZe system to submit a Firearms Permit Renewal Application for a timelier renewal. NOTE: Completing the BreEZe renewal questions and paying the renewal fee alone DOES NOT renew your Firearms Permit. You also must upload a scanned copy of the Firearms Permit Renewal Application with the BreEZe renewal transaction.
If you have any questions about this process you may contact the Bureau by emailing bsis@dca.ca.gov or calling 1-800-952-5210.

Alarm Company 2017 Occupational Analysis

The Bureau is inviting you to participate in the 2017 Occupational Analysis
 (OA) survey regarding the Alarm Company profession.
The survey will be available until June 10, 2017 , 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
 It will take approximately 60 minutes to complete the online survey questionnaire.
For your convenience, you may begin the survey questionnaire and exit to return
at a later time, as long as it is from the same computer.
If you are interested in helping us out with this important project, please:

Please Click Here to access the survey.

The Survey Web-link Password is: ACQ2016
(all UPPER case) 


About the Survey:

As you know, the Bureau is responsible for developing examinations to test
applicant’s skills for licensure in California. The development of an examination
 begins with an occupational analysis which is a method for identifying the tasks
performed in a profession and the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to perform the job.

 The OA is only conducted every five to seven years and the results are
very important to the development of the written exams.
Workshops with Alarm Company Qualified Managers (ACQ) have been
held in Sacramento, conducted by the Office of Professional Examination Services
 (OPES). As a result of their efforts, a survey questionnaire has been developed and
we invite you to participate in evaluating the 2017 OA as it relates to the current
 practice of the Alarm industry. Your response will be combined with responses
of other Alarm Company Qualified Manager professionals to determine the tasks
and knowledge needed for independent practice.

Your individual responses will be kept confidential.

Again, we appreciate your dedication to your profession and to our
mission of protecting the consumers of California by licensing
qualified and competent providers.

Thank you,

The Bureau of Security and Investigative Services

Please be advised that effective the evening of September 13, 2017, the ability to submit BSIS initial and renewal Firearms Permit applications as well as Add Caliber requests through BreEZe will be discontinued.

However, after the shutdown, all initial and renewal Firearms Permit applications and Add Caliber request should be submitted through the mail to P.O. Box 989002, West Sacramento, CA 95798.
