Any person falsely stating or representing that he is or has been a detective or employed by a detective agency or that he is or has been a bail enforcement agent or employed by a bail enforcement agency shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
2. No person shall hereafter be employed by any holder of a license certificate until he shall have executed and furnished to such license certificate holder a verified statement, to be known as “employee’s statement,” setting forth:

3. Immediately upon the verification of an employee’s statement, the holder of a license certificate by whom such person has been or is to be employed shall cause two sets of fingerprints of the two hands of such person to be recorded in such manner as the Department of State may by rule prescribe. The holder of a license certificate shall immediately stamp in indelible ink the employee’s statement and each set of fingerprints with the name, year and license certificate number of such holder and a number, which number shall be determined by the number of such statements furnished to such holder and shall be in numerical sequence.
4. The holder of a license certificate shall affix one set of such fingerprints to the employee’s statement in such manner that the prints can be examined without disclosing the contents of the employee’s statement and shall retain such statement and prints so long as he shall be licensed under this article by the Department of State.
5. The holder of a license certificate shall file the other set of fingerprints with the Department of State by forwarding the same by registered mail to the office of the Secretary of State, Albany, New York, within 24 hours of such employment.
6. Within five days after the filing of such fingerprints the Secretary of State shall cause such fingerprints to be compared with fingerprints filed with the Division of Criminal Justice Services and, if he finds any record of any conviction as defined in the Criminal Procedure Law of a felony or any other offense specified in subdivision one of this section, he shall immediately notify the holder of such license certificate and shall also refer the matter to the attorney-general. The Secretary of State may also from time to time cause such fingerprints to be checked against the fingerprints filed with the Division of Criminal Justice Services or of other official fingerprint files within or without this state, and if he finds that such person has been convicted of a felony or any other offense specified in subdivision one of this section he shall immediately notify the holder of such license certificate and shall also refer the matter to the attorney-general. The Secretary of State shall at all times be given access to and may from time to time examine the fingerprints retained by the holder of a license certificate as provided in subdivision four of this section.
7. If any holder of a certificate shall file with the Department of State the fingerprints of a person other than the person so employed, he shall be subject to a fine not exceeding $5,000 or to imprisonment not exceeding one year, or both.
8. The provisions of this section shall not be applicable to security guards or the employment of security guards by licensees.

Any person who is or has been an employee of a holder of a license shall not divulge to any one other than his employer, or as his employer shall direct, except as he may be required by law, any information acquired by him during such employment in respect of any work to which he shall have been assigned by such employer. Any such employee violating the provisions of this section and any such employee who shall wilfully make a false report to his employer in respect of any of such work, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. The employer of any employee believed to have violated this section shall without any liability whatsoever upon said employer supply the Secretary of State or such officer or person in the Department of State as the Secretary of State may designate, all the known facts and circumstances in connection with the said employee’s transaction or performance or action believed to be in violation of this article and the Secretary of State or his authorized representative shall, should the facts and circumstances be deemed to warrant, conduct further investigation and submit the evidence thus acquired to the attorney-general of the state for appropriate action in accordance with the provisions of §85 of this chapter.

2. The Department of State shall, before denying an application for a license or before revoking or suspending any license, excepting a temporary suspension as provided in subdivision 5 hereof, or imposing any fine or reprimand, and at least 15 days prior to the date set for the hearing, and upon due notice to the complainant or objector, notify in writing the applicant for, or the holder of such license of any charge made and shall afford said applicant, or licensee, an opportunity to be heard in person or by counsel in reference thereto. Such written notice may be served by delivery of same personally to the applicant or licensee, or by mailing same by registered mail to the last known business address of such applicant or licensee.
3. The hearing on such charges shall be at such time and place as the Department of State shall prescribe and shall be conducted by such officer or person in the department as the Secretary of State may designate, who shall have the power to subpoena and bring before the officer or person so designated any person in this state, and administer an oath to and take testimony of any person or cause his deposition to be taken.

If such hearing is adjourned at the request of the licensee, or by reason of any act or omission by him or on his behalf, such suspension may be continued for the additional period of such adjournment.
6. The action of the Department of State in granting or refusing to grant or to renew a license under this article or in revoking or suspending or refusing to revoke or suspend such a license or imposing any fine or reprimand shall be subject to review by a proceeding instituted under article 78 of the Civil Practice Law and Rules at the instance of the applicant for such license, the holder of a license so revoked, suspended, fined or reprimanded or the person aggrieved.
§80. License certificates, pocket cards or badges
Upon the issuing of a license as hereinbefore provided the Department of State shall issue to each person, partner, member of a limited liability company or officer of a corporation making and filing a statement required by §72 of this article a pocket card of such size and design as the Department of State may prescribe, which card shall contain a photograph of the licensee, the name and business address of the licensee and the imprint or impress of the seal of the Department of State which pocket card shall be evidence of due authorization pursuant to the terms of this article. All persons to whom such license certificates or pocket cards shall have been issued shall be responsible for the safe keeping of the same, and shall not lend, enable, let or allow any other person to have, hold, use or display such certificate or pocket card; and any person so parting with such a license certificate or pocket card or displaying the same without authority, or who shall display any license certificate or pocket card purporting to authorize the holder thereof to act as a private investigator, bail enforcement agent or watch, guard or patrol agency, unless the same shall have been duly issued pursuant to the provisions of this article, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. Failure to comply with the provisions of this section shall be sufficient cause for revocation of such license, and all such certificates or pocket cards shall be returned to the Department of State within 72 hours after the holder thereof has received notice in writing of the expiration or revocation of such license. It shall be unlawful for a holder of a license or anyone else to distribute, possess, use or display any license certificate, pocket card, badge, shield or any other indicia of a license status pursuant to this article except as set forth in this article. Any person who is a licensee hereunder or an officer or authorized employee of any other person, firm, limited liability company or corporation, whether or not licensed hereunder, while performing the services of a watchman, guard or private patrolman, may wear on his outer clothing a rectangular metal or woven insignia approved by the Department of State, which insignia shall not be larger than three inches high nor four inches wide with an inscription thereon containing the word “watchman”, “guard,” “patrol” or “special service” and the name of such licensee or employer. It shall be unlawful for any employer, whether or not licensed hereunder, to wear or distribute to his, their or its employees any employment identification except as authorized in this article and approved by the Secretary of State. Any person violating any provision of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
§81. Employees
1. The holder of any license certificate issued pursuant to this article may employ to assist him in his work of private detective or investigator or bail enforcement agent as described in §71 and in the conduct of such business as many persons as he may deem necessary, and shall at all times during such employment be legally responsible for the good conduct in the business of each and every person so employed. No holder of any unexpired license certificate issued pursuant to this article shall knowingly employ in connection with his or its business in any capacity whatsoever, any person who has been convicted of a felony or any of the offenses specified in subdivision 2 of §74 of this chapter, and who has not subsequent to such conviction received executive pardon therefor removing this disability, or received a certificate of good conduct granted by the Board of Parole pursuant to the provisions of the Executive Law to remove the disability under this section because of such a conviction, or any person whose private detective or investigator’s license or bail enforcement agent’s license was revoked or application for such license was denied by the Department of State or by the authorities of any other state or territory because of conviction of any of such offenses. Should the holder of an unexpired license certificate falsely state or represent that a person is or has been in his employ, such false statement or misrepresentation shall be sufficient cause for the revocation of such license. Any person falsely stating or representing that he is or has been a detective or employed by a detective agency or that he is or has been a bail enforcement agent or employed by a bail enforcement agency shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
2. No person shall hereafter be employed by any holder of a license certificate until he shall have executed and furnished to such license certificate holder a verified statement, to be known as “employee’s statement,” setting forth:
(a) His full name, age and residence address.
(b) That the applicant for employment is a citizen of the United States or an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States.
(c) The business or occupation engaged in for the three years immediately preceding the date of the filing of the statement, setting forth the place or places where such business or occupation was engaged in, and the name or names of employers, if any.
(d) That he has not been convicted of a felony or of any offense involving moral turpitude or of any of the misdemeanors or offenses described in subdivision one of this section.
(e) Such further information as the Department of State may by rule require to show the good character, competency, and integrity of the person executing the statement.
3. Immediately upon the verification of an employee’s statement, the holder of a license certificate by whom such person has been or is to be employed shall cause two sets of fingerprints of the two hands of such person to be recorded in such manner as the Department of State may by rule prescribe. The holder of a license certificate shall immediately stamp in indelible ink the employee’s statement and each set of fingerprints with the name, year and license certificate number of such holder and a number, which number shall be determined by the number of such statements furnished to such holder and shall be in numerical sequence.
4. The holder of a license certificate shall affix one set of such fingerprints to the employee’s statement in such manner that the prints can be examined without disclosing the contents of the employee’s statement and shall retain such statement and prints so long as he shall be licensed under this article by the Department of State.
5. The holder of a license certificate shall file the other set of fingerprints with the Department of State by forwarding the same by registered mail to the office of the Secretary of State, Albany, New York, within 24 hours of such employment.
6. Within five days after the filing of such fingerprints the Secretary of State shall cause such fingerprints to be compared with fingerprints filed with the Division of Criminal Justice Services and, if he finds any record of any conviction as defined in the Criminal Procedure Law of a felony or any other offense specified in subdivision one of this section, he shall immediately notify the holder of such license certificate and shall also refer the matter to the attorney-general. The Secretary of State may also from time to time cause such fingerprints to be checked against the fingerprints filed with the Division of Criminal Justice Services or of other official fingerprint files within or without this state, and if he finds that such person has been convicted of a felony or any other offense specified in subdivision one of this section he shall immediately notify the holder of such license certificate and shall also refer the matter to the attorney-general. The Secretary of State shall at all times be given access to and may from time to time examine the fingerprints retained by the holder of a license certificate as provided in subdivision four of this section.
7. If any holder of a certificate shall file with the Department of State the fingerprints of a person other than the person so employed, he shall be subject to a fine not exceeding $5,000 or to imprisonment not exceeding one year, or both.
8. The provisions of this section shall not be applicable to security guards or the employment of security guards by licensees.
§82. Employees not to divulge information or make false reports
Any person who is or has been an employee of a holder of a license shall not divulge to any one other than his employer, or as his employer shall direct, except as he may be required by law, any information acquired by him during such employment in respect of any work to which he shall have been assigned by such employer. Any such employee violating the provisions of this section and any such employee who shall wilfully make a false report to his employer in respect of any of such work, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. The employer of any employee believed to have violated this section shall without any liability whatsoever upon said employer supply the Secretary of State or such officer or person in the Department of State as the Secretary of State may designate, all the known facts and circumstances in connection with the said employee’s transaction or performance or action believed to be in violation of this article and the Secretary of State or his authorized representative shall, should the facts and circumstances be deemed to warrant, conduct further investigation and submit the evidence thus acquired to the attorney-general of the state for appropriate action in accordance with the provisions of §85 of this chapter.

No person, firm, limited liability company, partnership, corporation or any bureau or agency exempted hereunder from the application of this article shall perform any manner of private investigator, bail enforcement agent or watch, guard or patrol agency service as described in §71 of this article, for any other person, firm, limited liability company, partnership, corporation, bureau or agency whether for fee, hire, reward, other compensation, remuneration, or consideration or as an accommodation without fee, reward or remuneration or by a reciprocal arrangement whereby such services are exchanged on request of parties thereto.
