    As far as I know Oregon dosen't reconize the permits from any other state. Chances are you will have to applyfor s CJHL through Sherrif dept of the county you will reside in.

    Ok, he's talking about armed security.

    First you need to know two laws.

    First is the law of security officers.

    http://www.dpsst.state.or.us

    Plus you need to apply for a CHL, even if you do armed guard work. A State DPSST license is no defense to being charged with carrying a loaded firearm in a public place under ORS 166.173. Portland itself only includes an exemption for DPSST guards for BANKS only.
