General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 7-A
§ 89-i. Investigation. Within five business days after receipt of an
application, the department shall transmit to the division two sets of
fingerprints and the fees required pursuant to paragraph (b) of
subdivision ten of section eighty-nine-h of this article. One set of
fingerprints and the required fee shall be submitted to the federal
bureau of investigation for a national criminal history record check.
The results will be used to ascertain whether or not the applicant has
been charged with or convicted of a serious offense and may cause to be
conducted an investigation to verify the information contained in the
application; provided, however, that the department shall cause such
investigation to be conducted for applicants whose application has not
been submitted and verified pursuant to section eighty-nine-g of this
article. The department, in consultation with the division, may waive
such background checks, investigations and fees if in its opinion, the
security guard applicant has been subject to previous background checks
and investigation requirements which meet or exceed the requirements of
this section. The department, in consultation with the division, may not
be required to conduct background checks or investigations for
applicants who are also employed as peace officers.
