Atlanta Private Investigator

A private investigator in Atlanta must apply to the Georgia Board of Private Detectives and Security Agencies and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check. While many Atlanta private investigators come from a law enforcement or military background, it is not a requirement for employment as a private investigator. Often times a degree in Criminal Justice or other security and investigation work can be just as important to prospective employers.

In the State of Georgia, it is against the law to provide the services of a private investigator without a Georgia Private Investigator License. You can rest assured that any Atlanta private investigator assigned to your case with ICS is an authorized sub-contractor fully licensed and insured in accordance with Georgia State Laws and participates in the required continuing education.
