For a Faster Turnaround of Guard Employee Applications

Guard Employee Registration Online Application

Apply Online via MyPVL:

  • Submit application and required documents online
  • Monitor the status of your application
  • Pay by credit card or checking account




1) Make certain all required documents are submitted (application fee, training certificate, verification of high school or equivalency).

2) Applicants who answer “Yes” to questions 3, 4, 5, or 6 of the application, must submit all of the documentation required on pages 2 and 3 of the “Requirements & Instructions – Guard Registration”.

3) Applicants should answer “Yes” if they have any criminal convictions. Background checks may reveal conviction(s) and a deficiency or deferral will be sent requesting the required documentation and statements if not originally submitted. Sending deficiency letters, waiting for documentation to clear deficiencies, and Board review may add approximately 4 weeks to the review process.

4) If the high school educational documentation is in question, use the “Statement of Educational Background” form. The form must verify at least 4 years of work experience. If an applicant has only worked for 2 years, the applicant must obtain as many statements from former employers to verify at least 4 years. The forms must be signed and notarized.
