Batons (including extendable batons)

Batons, body armour and handcuffs

Release date: Wed 22 September 2010

Last updated: Mon 6 February 2012

The Control of Weapons Act 1990 divides non-firearm weapons into three basic categories; prohibited weapons, controlled weapons and dangerous articles. As batons and body armour fall within the scope of this Act, and handcuffs restrict a person's freedom of movement, you may purchase, possess, carry, or use these articles whilst working in the private security industry only under certain conditions.

The conditions for using batons are different to the conditions for using body armour and these are different again to the conditions for using handcuffs. You will be in breach of your licence if you fail to meet these conditions and may be subject to a disciplinary inquiry and/or have your licence cancelled.

Mutual recognition

If you wish to work in Victoria with batons or handcuffs but hold an interstate security licence, you will need to provide your Victorian employer with evidence that you have completed training in batons and handcuffs. They may then authorise you to use these items on the job.

If you cannot demonstrate that you have completed the training in your home state, you will need to complete units CPPSEC3014A (batons) and/or CPPSEC3015A (handcuffs) with an approved Victorian Registered Training Organisation.

Transitional provisions

At the time of renewal, all Victorian private security licence holders will have the following generic condition added to their licence:

Individual Licences: The licence holder is not permitted to carry or use security equipment, being a baton and/or handcuffs, unless the licence holder has the approval of the licence holder's employer and has undertaken training relevant to that security equipment from an approved security training organisation.

Business Licences: The licence holder must not permit any employee to carry or use security equipment, being a baton and/or handcuffs, unless the employee has the approval of the licence holder and the employee has undertaken training relevant to that security equipment from an approved security training organisation.'

Please note: An article designed or adapted to discharge oleoresin capsicum spray is a prohibited weapon. It is illegal to purchase, possess, carry or use capsicum spray without a Governor in Council Exemption Order or a Chief Commissioner of Police Approval.

Requirement 4: Permission From Your Employer

The licence or permit holder must receive approval from their employer before they can purchase, posses, carry, or use a baton as part of their job.

Employees are responsible for providing their employers with evidence that they have completed the relevant training. Employers or business licence holders are responsible for determining whether it is appropriate for their staff to use a baton at work. Employers are also responsible for checking that their employees have completed the relevant training at an approved security training organisation.

A member of Victoria Police may request persons working with a baton to demonstrate that the above requirements have been met.
