Private Security Guards in Florida Accused of Obtaining Fake Firearm Certificates

According to a new disclosure, investigators in Florida have unearthed a large number of incidents involving granting of fake firearm certificates to around 2400 private security guards. News sources reveal that the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Division of Licensing has initiated large-scale investigation against the guards and instructors employed in the flourishing private security industry in South Florida area. The department and public records reveal that certified firearms and security guard instructors have given fake firearm certificates to an astonishingly huge number of security guards.

The selling, distributing and obtaining of fake firearms certificates is common in South Florida. Sources in the private security industry reveal that those who don`t have the intelligence or language proficiency to pass the test conducted for armed security guards or those who don`t know how to use a gun, can obtain a signed firearms proficiency certificate just by paying an amount of $300-$400.

William Lopez, head of Vista Security Services in Doral, states that most of these schools are providing bogus firearms certificates. William Lopez mentions that he has joined hands with licensed trainer Marcos Lopez to set up SS Security and Firearms Academy in order to ensure that the guards at VSS are adequately trained.
