I know, we all hate government regulations, and to be honest, I was not the biggest fan of the Security Programs Division. The thing is, they are there as more than a governmental tax grab.
All aspects of the Security industry, within the Province of British Columbia are regulated by the Provincial government. This includes Police, Private Investigators, LockSmiths, Security Alarm Installers, Video Surveillance Installers, Sales People in the Security Alarm Industry, and the staff who work within the Monitoring Stations located within the Province of British Columbia MUST BE REGISTERED WITH PISA. This means fingerprints and criminal record checks. If you are looking at having any type of Security Alarm System or CCTV Video Surveillance System installed, you can always check to see if the company providing you with the quotation is registered with the Provincial Government. Their website keeps changing, so a simple search for Security Programs British Columbia or PISA British Columbia should bring you up their website. Last time I looked, they had an online tool for verifying both Security Employee's and the Company they work for. Here is the current link VERIFY A SECURITY EMPLOYEE OR BUSINESS LICENCE IN BRITISH COLUMBIA
It is important to note, Monitoring Station Staff are only required to have Security Clearance by the Province of British Columbia, if the Monitoring Station is actually located in the Province of British Columbia. In other words, those companies with out of province monitoring stations are not subject to Criminal Record Checks by PISA.
