Many Hawaii guards will soon be breaking the law

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A deadline is coming up for a new licensing requirement for Hawaii's security guards and nightclub bouncers.

But most of them haven't applied yet and will be breaking the law, starting Monday. The new requirements include eight hours of training and background checks.

Hawaii News Now reports only about 4,000 applications have been turned in. According to a 2010 report, there are an estimated 11,000 security workers in Hawaii.

The state Board of Private Detectives and Guards could fine an employee. Board Executive Officer Charlene Tamanaha says those who haven't met the requirements shouldn't be working or acting as a guard.

If a guard submits an application by Monday and attests to meeting the requirements, the applicant will be allowed to keep working, pending a review of the application.
