REGULATION OF PROFESSIONS AND OCCUPATIONS
493.6100 Legislative intent.—The
Legislature recognizes that the private security, investigative, and
recovery industries are rapidly expanding fields that require regulation
to ensure that the interests of the public will be adequately served
and protected. The Legislature recognizes that untrained persons,
unlicensed persons or businesses, or persons who are not of good moral
character engaged in the private security, investigative, and recovery
industries are a threat to the welfare of the public if placed in
positions of trust. Regulation of licensed and unlicensed persons and
businesses engaged in these fields is therefore deemed necessary.
