Did you know there are no licensing requirements for private investigators in the state of Colorado? As silly as it seems, Colorado has licensing requirements for barbers, hairstylists, and plumbers, but not for private investigators. In fact, Colorado is one of only 4 states that have no licensing or regulation available for private investigators. This means that any felon, including a murderer or rapist, can be a private investigator in this state. Of course these are extreme examples, but API has heard of and exposed investigators with criminal records, domestic violence records, drug convictions, theft convictions, sex offenses, stalking charges, restraining orders, etc. operating in this state. Safeguard your cases and make sure your investigator is a reputable one with a clean record. Many investigators in Colorado are actually licensed in other states as a means of demonstrating a level of credibility above other investigators.
