Burglar and Hold-Up Alarm Businesses

R.I. Gen. Laws § 5-57-34

§ 5-57-34. Nontransferability of I.D. cards.

No I.D. card issued pursuant to the provisions of this chapter shall be transferable. I.D. cards issued by the licensing authority must be surrendered to the licensing authority by the I.D. cardholder or employer of the cardholder upon termination of employment. A new application for an I.D. card must be submitted to the licensing authority if the I.D. cardholder is subsequently employed by another alarm business. Temporary I.D. cards issued by alarm businesses must also be surrendered to the alarm business issuing that card by the I.D. cardholder upon termination of employment or association with the alarm business. Willful and knowing refusal upon request of the licensing authority or the alarm business to return an I.D. card is a misdemeanor. No new application or fee shall be required of a cardholder who, following voluntary termination, returns to employment with the same alarm business if reinstatement takes place within six (6) months of the issuance of the original or renewal I.D. card. After notification of reinstatement, the licensing authority shall forward the reclaimed cardholder’s I.D. card to the employing alarm business for dispersal to the cardholder. The re-issued I.D. card shall expire two (2) years from the original date of issue. The break in service between employment, termination, and re-employment of the cardholder with the alarm business shall be documented on the next application for renewal submitted at the required time to the licensing authority.
