Michigan Private Investigator

Local Michigan Private Investigator

Private Investigators in Michigan 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.

Michigan Private Investigator

A private investigator in Michigan must apply to the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth, Licensing Division and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check. While many Michigan 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 Michigan, it is against the law to provide the services of a private investigator without a Michigan Private Investigator License. You can rest assured that any Michigan private investigator assigned to your case is licensed and insured in accordance with Michigan State Laws and participates in the required continuing education.
