The Hawaii state statues prohibit the use of guns, therefore firearms requirements are handled at the county level.
In addition to the requirements for getting a security guard license in Hawaii. Getting a license to work as an armed security guard includes the following requirements.
- Be at least 21 years of age.
- 4 years of experience working as a security guard.
- Weapon permit issued by the county police.
- Submit to Fingerprinting.
The application process is the same as when you apply for a Hawaii security guard license.
There may be a fee associated with the registration.
