To carry a baton as a CA Security Guard, you are required to take an 8-hour BSIS Baton Training Course. Upon completion of the baton training and upon passing the written test, you will receive your Baton Permit.
**Carrying a baton without a BSIS baton permit and a valid BSIS guard card is a Felony in California.**
