In 2010, the Legislature established a new training requirements for guards in HRS Chapter 462. See, Act 208 (SLH 2010). Effectively July 1, 2013, new HRS section 463-10.5(a) requires all guards, and all agents, operatives, and assistants employed by a guard agency, private business entity, or government agency who act in a guard capacity to register with the Board of Private Detectives and Guards and meet certain training requirements prior to acting as a guard.
