It is illegal to act as a private investigator without a license in most states, as is the case in Pennsylvania. Private investigators in Pennsylvania must receive a license through their county judge. In Bethlehem, this means that private investigators must be licensed through a Lehigh County Judge. Before private investigator applicants in Bethlehem can receive their license, they must pass a rigorous licensing procedure involving an extensive background check and fingerprinting. Applicants in Bethlehem and the rest of Pennsylvania are expected to have at least 3 years of full time experience as an investigator. This experience can come from a variety of sources, including through a police department, federal government investigation agency, or certain forms of military service. When all requirements have been met, those applying for a private investigator license in Bethlehem must make an appointment with the Clerk of Courts. From there, the Clerk of Courts will schedule an interview with a Lehigh County Judge and a District Attorney. Only after passing all interviews will a Pennsylvania private investigator license be granted to residents of any county.
