A private investigator in Orange County must apply to the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check.

Orange County Private Investigator

California is one of the largest states in the U.S., both by land mass and population, with an official count of 37.7 million residents. Last year, 1.13 million index crimes were reported, which includes both violent crimes and property crimes. That calculates to 29.95 crimes reported annually per 1,000 residents, compared to the national median of 33.0. Of those reported, 4.11 were violent while 25.84 were property crimes. This compares to national medians of 3.9 violent and 29.1 property crimes annually. Orange County, the third largest county in the State, claims just over 3 million of those residents. It is known for its affluence and tourism industry, but that does not mean that crime does not exist there. If you are the victim of a white collar crime, or even a property or violent crime, you may need the help of a private investigator. Those licensed by ICS are highly trained and experienced, and by hiring one, you can be assured that someone will be dedicated to your case at all times.
