23-2-2011 – Mandatory fingerprinting for all QLD Security Officers

The Office of Fair Trading recently announced it will bring Queensland into line with other Australian states and territories with mandatory fingerprinting.

  • If you hold a current Security licence, you will be required at your next renewal, on or after 1st August 2011 to attend an appointed Police station to have your fingerprints taken, at your own cost of approximately $100.
  • On the 3rd May 2011, new applicants will need to provide their fingerprints as part of the application process.
  • Please note, you will only be required to provide your fingerprints once, even if you apply for additional licenses.
