The Private Security Program of the Texas Department of Public Safety regulates the private security and private investigation industry in the state of Texas under the authority of Occupations Code Chapter 1702 and the Private Security Board’s Administrative Rules.

The program licenses private security and private investigation companies and registers individuals employed by those companies in a regulated capacity.  The program’s commissioned and non-commissioned personnel investigate consumer complaints, unlicensed activity and administrative violations.
