Do you need a license to be a private detective


Asked by wiki @ in General viewed by 270 People


Can you be arrested for investigating without a private investigator's license?

Answered by wiki @


Depends on the state, the nature of your employment, and the reasons you’re investigating.
Colorado, the last time I checked, does not issue licenses to private detectives, so you can rent an office and hang out your shingle without fear of breaking the law.
If you’re in a state that requires a license, and you don’t have a license of your own, but you’re employed as an investigator for a licensed agency, you’re not breaking the law, because you’re operating under your employer’s license
And, if you’re not investigating for a private client, but for reasons of your own (e.g. you’re writing a book about a famous unsolved case) you can’t be arrested for investigating, per se. If the case is still active you could, if you got in their way, be arrested for interfering with police in the course of their duties.
