Private Security


All fingerprints for Private Security applications must be submitted electronically through the Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST). Instructions for scheduling a fingerprint appointment can be found here. If an electronic fingerprinting appointment cannot be scheduled within three business days, DPS can be contacted at Fingerprint Services.

The Private Security Program regulates the private security and private investigation industry in Texas under Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 1702 and the Private Security Board’s Administrative Rules.

Public access to certain records of disciplinary action is available, toll-free, at (800) 224-5744.
