Certifications

When deciding which professional investigative firm to hire, ensuring that you utilize properly licensed Private Investigators, as well as a licensed Agency, is paramount. All of our investigators are properly registered, and our firm is licensed in both of the states where we operate.

Licensing

The licensing of private detectives is required in all but four of the United States. Idaho, Mississippi, South Dakota and Wyoming are the only states in the country that currently do not have a requirement for a private investigator to be licensed. In Maryland and Virginia, however, not only must an individual be licensed, or what is termed “certified” and “registered” respectively, a Private Detective Agency must also be licensed in order to conduct business in either state.

It is important to note that a person who is individually licensed as a Private Detective in either Maryland or Virginia is not authorized to do business with the public unless they also hold a Private Detective Agency License in Maryland, or what is termed a Private Security Services Business License in Virginia, as well.
