The hospital has a license issued by the State of Georgia to operate it's own security department. Each officer is individually licensed to operate under the hospital's license. Additionally, this allows officers to carry a firearm, both in an exposed manner as well as concealed.
Each officer must attend security courses, qualify with a firearm and taser, as well as pass a use of force test. Continued education is required prior to each license renewal. Firearm qualification and taser recertification is an annual recurring requirement.
