Private security services businesses; qualifications; felony convictions. Limits to Class 5 or Class 6 felonies the felony convictions for which the Director of the Department of Criminal Justice Services, upon written request, may waive the prohibition against a person with a felony conviction being (i) employed as a registered or certified employee by a private security services business or training school or (ii) issued a private security services registration; a certification as an unarmed security officer, electronic security employee, or technician's assistant; a private security services training school or instructor certification; a compliance agent certification; or a private security services business license. The bill conditions waiver of the prohibition for a person convicted of a Class 5 or Class 6 felony upon such person's having been pardoned for such felony or having successfully fulfilled all conditions of sentencing for such felony and having had his civil rights restored, including his firearm rights. Under current law, the Director may waive such prohibition for a person convicted of any felony; the bill retains the Director's authority to waive such prohibition for a person convicted of certain misdemeanors.
