Secure Transportation Services Licensing Program

Beginning January 1, 2023, all secure transportation businesses must be licensed by the county in which they operate. All Secure Transportation Service businesses must be licensed, and all secure transportation vehicles must be permitted. The Board of County Commissioners conducts hearings and makes findings on whether to grant or deny a license or permit application.

Secure Transportation Services can be licensed as either Class A (may use physical restraint) or Class B (no physical restraint).

Secure Transportation Vehicles can be permitted as either Type 1 (partitioned) or Type 2 (non-partitioned).
