The California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) recently made a significant change to their alarm company operator (ACO) licensing requirements. In order to obtain or renew an ACO license with CA BSIS, they now require that the company provide an in-state address. According to the bureau, the reason for this change is to ensure that the bureau has the ability to inspect records without traveling outside the state of California. A residential or commercial address is acceptable. There is no exception granted for out-of-state monitoring companies.
