Security Licensing Process and Licence Conditions Policies (Link)

Introduction

Generally, individuals who are engaged in security work, or carrying on a security business, are prohibited from carrying firearms. However, because of the nature of their work, the registrar permits armoured car guards to carry firearms so long as a number of requirements are met. Qualifications for armoured car guard licence applicants were outlined in policy 2.5.2.1. This section outlines:

• the application requirements relating to firearms that are specific to armoured car guard licence applicants, and

• the licence conditions relating to firearms that apply to all armoured car guard security worker and business licences.

Policies

3.4.1 Security worker application requirements

Rationale In order to issue an armoured car guard security worker licence, the registrar must be satisfied that the applicant holds all licences and permits required by law in relation to an approved type of firearm. Firearms are regulated federally under the Firearms Act of Canada (Firearms Act) and its regulations. In order to carry a firearm while working as an armoured car guard, an individual must have an Authorization to Carry (ATC) issued pursuant to section 20 (b) of that Act.

Policy 3.4.1.1

The registrar may issue a security worker licence to an armoured car guard. The security worker licence is valid only while the armoured car guard is in possession of a valid ATC as issued by the Chief Firearms Officer for British Columbia (CFO BC).

3.4.2 Security worker licence conditions

Rationale

To ensure continuing firearms proficiency and ongoing compliance with the requirements of the Firearms Act, the registrar has imposed a number of licence conditions on all armoured car guard security worker licences. These include conditions relating to the types of firearms and ammunition that may be carried. Armoured car guard workers currently carry revolvers, but armoured car guard businesses wish to transition to semiautomatic pistols. While the transition to the semi-automatic pistol is ongoing, the registrar will authorize workers to carry the revolver. An armoured car guard worker may carry a semi automatic pistol only after the licensee has completed a Justice Institute of BC (JIBC) semi-automatic pistol conversion training course taught by an approved JIBC “Use of Force Training and Firearms Proficiency” instructor or has taken a course deemed by the JIBC to be equivalent.

Policy

3.4.2.1 The conditions outlined in 3.4.2.2 to 3.4.2.6 apply to all armoured car guard security worker licences.

3.4.2.2 The licensee must only carry a firearm if the licensee holds a valid ATC issued under section 20 (b) of the Firearms Act, by the CFO BC and follows all the conditions of the ATC.

3.4.2.3 The licensee must only carry a firearm that is registered to the business licence holder’s firearms business inventory and where, pursuant to the Firearms Act, a firearm registration number has been issued.

3.4.2.4 The licensee must carry the approved firearm only while on duty, in uniform with the firearm prominently displayed and contained in a minimum level III security holster on a pistol belt. (This condition does not apply to the licensee when engaged in firearms training and target practice on an approved firing range or for ordinary firearms maintenance in accordance with company policy.)

3.4.2.5 The firearm must be securely stored at the licensed business address during off-duty hours.

3.4.2.6 The licensee must only carry the following approved types of firearms as specified:

(a) Revolvers: – all-steel, double action, six shot revolvers with a safety hammer block and swing out cylinder, and classified as;

(i) restricted firearm defined by section 84(1) Criminal Code of Canada (CCC) “a handgun that is not a prohibited firearm” (with a barrel length of not less than 106 mm and not more than 127 mm, or

(ii) prohibited handgun (with a barrel length of not less than 100 mm) and defined (in part) by section 84(1) CCC “a handgun that has a barrel equal to or less than 105 mm in length”

– carry ammunition only of the calibre .38/.357 special, factory loaded +P hollow point (controlled expansion) ammunition composed of either copper-jacketed or all lead alloy,

– to carry on duty, a maximum of 18 cartridges only (six in the revolver and two additional speed loaders on the pistol belt), and

(b) Semi-automatic pistols: – classified as restricted firearm defined in part by section 84 (1) CCC “means a handgun that is not a prohibited firearm”

– with a double action trigger mechanism,

– a barrel length of not less than 106 mm and no more than 127 mm,

– carry only approved pistol ammunition as follows; (i) 9 mm Luger or .40 S & W calibre, factory loaded hollow point (controlled expansion) ammunition composed of either copper

– jacketed lead or all lead alloy, (ii) 9 mm bullet weight of not less than 147 grains and .40 calibre bullet weight of not less than 180 grains, and (iii) 9 mm muzzle velocity of between 290 m/second and 330 m/second and .40 calibre muzzle velocity of between 290m/second and 396 m/second.

– to carry on duty, a maximum of 30 cartridges only (10 in the magazine of the handgun and two spare magazine of 10 cartridges each on the pistol belt). The magazines must be capable of holding not more than 10 cartridges when fully charged,

(c) Shotguns:

– in the case where the licensee is required to carry a shotgun or where a shotgun is deployed in a vehicle, the licensee must have within the preceding 12 months, successfully completed the JIBC Basic Shotgun Proficiency Test from a certified JIBC Shotgun Proficiency Instructor, or has taken a course/test deemed by the JIBC to be equivalent.

– only 12 gauge “pump action” shotguns capable of holding not more than eight shells and that are commonly known as “non-restricted” firearms (specifically not falling under the CCC definition of a restricted or prohibited firearm) are authorized for use by armoured car guard workers, and

– only 12 gauge shotgun shells commonly known as SSG/00 Buck and containing no less than nine shot pellets per shell are authorized. The use of shotgun “slugs” or any other projectiles other than shot pellets are not authorized.

3.4.3 Security business application requirements

Rationale

The registrar must be satisfied that armoured car guards will be using firearms that are registered to their employer under the Firearms Act. Therefore, as part of the application process for armoured car guard businesses, the registrar collects and reviews copies of relevant documents issued under the authority of that Act.

Policy

3.4.3.1 A person applying for an armoured car guard security business licence must submit: (a) a copy of a valid Firearms Business Licence issued in the business’s name by the CFO BC, and (b) a complete list of all registered firearms held by the business.

3.4.4 Security business licence conditions

Rationale

To ensure that both the armoured car guard business and its workers continue to comply with the requirements of the Firearms Act once they are licensed, the registrar has imposed a number of licence conditions on all armoured car guard business licences.

Policy

3.4.4.1 The conditions outlined in 3.4.4.2 to 3.4.4.6 apply to all armoured car guard security business licences.

3.4.4.2 The licensee must only carry on the security business so long as the licensee holds a copy of a valid Firearms Business Licence issued in the business’s name by the CFO BC.

3.4.4.3 The licensee must ensure that its armoured car guard workers only carry a firearm if the worker holds a valid ATC issued by the CFO BC and follows all the conditions of the ATC.

3.4.4.4 The licensee must ensure that its armoured car guard workers only carry firearms that are registered to the security business under the Firearms Act.

3.4.4.5 The licensee must ensure that its armoured car guard workers only carry the firearms approved under 3.4.2.6.

3.4.4.6 The licensee must ensure that its armoured car guard workers, who carry firearms, only carry the ammunition approved under 3.4.2.6.
