Local North Carolina Private Investigator

Private Investigators in North Carolina 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.

North Carolina Private Investigator

A private investigator in North Carolina must apply to the North Carolina Department of Justice and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check. While many North Carolina 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.

You can rest assured that any North Carolina private investigator assigned to your case with ICS is an authorized sub-contractor fully licensed and insured in accordance with North Carolina State Laws and participates in the required continuing education.
