Buffalo Private Investigator

A private investigator in Buffalo must apply to the New York Division of Licensing Services and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check. While many Buffalo 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 New York, it is against the law to provide the services of a private investigator without a New York Private Investigator License. You can rest assured that any Buffalo private investigator assigned to your case with A2Z is fully licensed and insured in accordance with New York State Laws and participates in the required continuing education.
