How to Find a Licensed Private Investigator

by | Jan 31, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

The decision to hire a private investigator is rarely an easy one. Many people will only need the services of an investigator when they’ve experienced challenging circumstances in their lives. Family law cases, such as those involving divorcealimony, and child custody, are among the most common reasons why people need to hire a PI for investigation services. But you shouldn’t just call the first agency that pops up on your internet search. Instead, you should take the time to find a licensed private investigator. Here’s how.

First, you’ll need to determine if your state requires private investigators to be licensed. Once you’ve confirmed that they do, you’ll need to find the appropriate government agency that regulates them. In South Carolina, the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) manages the licensing of all private investigators in the state.

Some states may have directories of licensed private investigators available online. But even if they don’t, you can always call that agency to verify the licensing of a PI you’re thinking of hiring.
