School Security Guard Vendor Registration

Section 1315-C of Article XIII-C (relating to school security) of the Public School Code of 1949 tasks the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) to establish criteria for certifying approved third-party vendors to provide school security guard services to school entities and nonpublic schools.  PCCD, the PA Department of Education (PDE) and the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) have jointly developed the following set of criteria to be submitted to PCCD.

Vendors need to have the following in place:

  1. Vendor Identification
    • Employer Identification Number (EIN)
    • State Vendor Number (optional)

    • No convictions or prior arrests of employees
