The wind may still come sweepin' down the plains in Oklahoma, but the government won't necessarily clean out your pockets. As a state that encourages business development, Oklahoma keeps regulation minimal and makes licensing relatively simple. Although in the big city, people are no longer picnicking with their hampers, much of the state remains highly agrarian and produces wheat, cattle and dairy. It also has a large supply of black gold and produces lots of oil and natural gas.
In Oklahoma, alarm and security businesses bear the burden of serious responsibility. Not only do they protect homes and businesses from threat and violence, but they are entrusted with knowing when people come and go – and their very lives. The amount of knowledge and care required has prompted states to combat abuse, fraud and scams by requiring alarm and security companies to hold licenses. Many cities further these measures with local permits and registrations.
