The voluntary licensing program for the Colorado private investigator will be in effect on July 1, 2012. At this time, you as a client will have to decide if you want to retain a Colorado private investigator who is licensed or one that is unlicensed. When choosing a licensed investigator you will have the comfort of knowing that the investigator has been through an FBI background check as well as a Colorado Bureau of Investigations background check. Furthermore, in order to qualify for a Colorado private investigator license, the individual has to have substantial experience in the investigative field.

When hiring a Colorado private investigator, please know who you are working with. Check an investigators references, credentials and you can verify their license status through the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agency’s web site at:
