In the state of Tennessee a person needs to be licensed and registered to work as a qualified security guard. The Tennessee security guard license needs to be renewed every 2 years, and can be obtained through the Tennessee department of regulatory boards. The minimum requirements for security licensing in Tennessee are very similar to most other states (18, citizen, clean record etc.).
