Local Maine Private Investigator

Private Investigators in Maine are required to be licensed in order to conduct Private Investigation services. If your investigation requires the case to move out of state, the private investigator must still abide by any out of state licensing requirements.

Maine Private Investigator

A private investigator in Maine must go through a thorough background check and be licensed under the Maine Department of Public Safety and is overseen by the Maine State Police. Although there are no requirements other than to be licensed to become a private investigator, many agents have extensive military or police training.

You can rest assured that any Maine Private Investigator assigned to your case with ICS of Maine is fully licensed and insured in accordance with Maine state laws and participates in any required continuing education. It is important for you to have this assurance, as it is equally illegal to hire an unlicensed private investigator in a state that requires it, as well as to operate a private investigation firm without a license.
