The home of Motor City, Motown and the Wolverines has known big business for a long time. Heavily industrial Michigan has a number of special environmental and community protection-oriented regulations to keep its citizens safe. That means lots of licenses and permits for business-owners to secure.
In Michigan, 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.
