Okla. Admin. Code § 390:35-7-4 - Background investigation of applicants

(a) The requirements of the Act will necessitate an investigation into the personal history, and moral character of each applicant. Local, state, and federal criminal indices will be examined in the normal processing of applications for evidence of any prior criminal record. In addition to those offenses set forth in the Statutes, convictions of crimes set forth in Appendix A of this Chapter, may be deemed as disqualifying convictions.
(b) Failure to provide the information necessary to complete this background investigation, including certified copies of final dispositions, shall preclude any further processing and shall result in denial of said application.
(c) All applicants shall submit to a fingerprint background check as required by statute and in accordance with procedures in effect at the time the application is made.
(d) An applicant shall state any and all names previously used by the applicant, and the date of any name change.
(e) An applicant shall provide information on any previous licenses held as a private security guard or private investigator, whether in this state or other state, and any previous revocations or suspensions of any such license.
(f) No license shall be issued under the following circumstances:
(1) A new license shall not be issued if a disqualifying charge is pending against the applicant in any court in this state, another state, tribal court, or pursuant to the United States Code.
(2) A new or renewal license shall not be issued if the applicant is subject to the provisions of a deferred sentence or deferred prosecution in any court in this state, another state, tribal court, or pursuant to federal authority for the commission of any disqualifying offense. The preclusive period shall be for five (5) years and shall begin upon the final determination of the matter.
(g) An applicant who has been reported to CLEET to have been involuntarily committed at anytime, will be notified in writing of the alleged involuntary commitment along with the applicant's employer. The applicant shall provide to CLEET written notification of a psychological evaluation conducted by a licensed physician or psychologist which attests and states by affidavit that the licensee and the evaluation test data of the licensee have been examined and that, in the professional opinion of the physician or psychologist, the licensee is psychologically suitable to be a security guard or private investigator.
