This pertains to the issuance of LESPs to private security personnel wherein a huge backlog had develop in view of the covid-19 pandemic wherein CSG-SOSIA personnel had gone on forced vacation and the bogging down of various computer equipment utilized in the processing/issuance of LESPs.

To ease the predicament of all concerned especially our private security personnel who bear the brunt of not having a valid LESP, hence, not being able to go "on duty", CSG-SOSIA will be issuing temporary/provisional LESP valid for sixty (60) days until the issuance of LESP card. The proof of payment or the SBR will be the temporary/provisional LESP ID.
