While this suspension is in effect , organizations who employ security personnel within St. Louis County will be responsible for the vetting and training of their personnel. Organizations that utilize unlicensed security personnel will bear the responsibility for their actions during this suspension of services. When the Private Security Section resumes operations, it will be required that all organizations and individuals comply with St. Louis County Ordinance 701.115 by obtaining a Metropolitan License.
