Letter From Bureau of Security and Investigative Services Effective January 1, 2015
All Licensed private patrol operators must maintain general liability insurance. You will be required to have commercial general liability insurance policy that provides minimum limits of
one million dollars ($1,000,000) for any one loss or occurrence due to bodily injury, including death, or property damage, or both.
This requirement is pursuant to new Business and Professions Code Sections 7583.39 and 7583.40
from the enactment of AB 2220 (Chapter 432, Statutes of 2014).
Please note that failure to maintain the required liability insurance coverage, and failure to provide
the Bureau proof of that insurance will result in an automatic suspension of License, B and P Code
section 7583.39 subsection (B).
It is the Private Patrol Operators responsibility to provide the Bureau with your Certificate of Liability insurance. For more information on this you can email your questions to ( PrivateSecurityServices@dca.ca.gov.) or contact the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services
