How to Become a Security Guard in Massachusetts

The path to becoming a Security Guard in Massachusetts is unlike a lot of the other US states.

  • The difference is that there is no such thing as a state Security Guard license in Massachusetts.

A MA Security Guard is regulated through their Massachusetts security employer which is officially called

  • Watch Guard Patrol Agency.

There is no MA security license but to get hired as a Watch Guard you'll still need to meet basic requirements such as age, language proficiency, and other usual security licensing requirements of this nature.
