Is there anything that would prevent me from obtaining or renewing my Texas Private Security License?

Per the Texas Private Security Board, as of the 85th Legislative Session, which amends Chapter 53, all students obtaining or renewing a license should be aware of changes and updates to the Administrative Rules.

Please be advised under the Private Security Act (Occ. Code Chapter 1702) and Administrative Rule 35.4 (37 Tex. Admin. Code 1), a criminal conviction may disqualify you from a registration, commission or license under the Act. You may wish to review Rule 35.4’s list of disqualifying offenses and the related periods of ineligibility, available on the department’s website at (click on the link to Administrative Code). You also have a right to request from the department a criminal history evaluation letter under Occupations Code Section 53.102.
