AN ACT TO MAKE VARIOUS CHANGES TO THE PRIVATE PROTECTIVE SERVICES ACT AND THE ALARM SYSTEMS LICENSING ACT, AND TO CREATE CERTAIN
House committee substitute to the 3rd edition makes the following changes.
Amends GS 74C-3 to provide that a licensed North Carolina private investigator, or permitted private investigator trainee who has provided at least five years of services under former GS 74C-3-(a)(8)f (defining private detective or private investigator to include engaging in the profession of or accepting employment to furnish, agree to make, or make inquiries or investigations concerning protection of individuals from serious bodily harm or death, on a contractual basis), within the immediate five years prior to July 1, 2020, may apply and receive a close personal protection endorsement (removes requirement to pay a fee and to meet all requirements for a close personal protection license upon the license renewal; also removes the exclusion of trainees).
Eliminates proposed GS 74C-17(e), which authorized the the Private Protective Services Board to charge costs, including reasonable attorney's fees, for any proceeding governed by the APA, GS Chapter 150B, or authorized by the enforcement provisions of this statute.
