Cleveland Private Investigator

A private investigator in Cleveland must apply to the Ohio Department of Public Safety and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check. While many Cleveland 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 Ohio, it is against the law to provide the services of a private investigator without a Ohio Private Investigator License. You can rest assured that any Cleveland private investigator assigned to your case with ICS is an authorized sub-contractor fully licensed and insured in accordance with Ohio State Laws and participates in the required continuing education.
