4749.12 Nonresident licenses.

(A) A person who is a resident of another state; is licensed as a private investigator, security guard provider, or as a private investigator and a security guard provider in another state; and wishes to engage in the business of private investigation, the business of security services, or both businesses in this state, shall be licensed pursuant to section 4749.03 of the Revised Code, but the director of public safety may waive the examination requirement of that section and issue a license to a nonresident under the circumstances described in division (B) of this section.

(B) If a nonresident private investigator, security guard provider, or private investigator and security guard provider seeking licensure under this chapter submits with the application and accompanying matter specified in section 4749.03 of the Revised Code proof of licensure in another state, and if the requirements of divisions (A)(1)(a), (b), and (d) and, if applicable, (F)(1) of section 4749.03 of the Revised Code are satisfied and the nonresident meets all current requirements of the laws of the other state regulating the business of private investigation, the business of security services, or both businesses, the director may waive the examination requirement and fee of that section. This waiver authority may be exercised only if the director determines that the other state has a law similar to this division and extends to residents of this state a similar waiver of examination privilege.
