A Galveston private investigator must apply to the Texas Private Security Bureau and pass all licensing requirements, including a thorough background check.

Often, Private Investigators will have a degree in Criminal Justice or other related educational experience.

You can rest assured that any Galveston private investigator assigned to your case with ICS is fully licensed and insured in accordance with Texas state laws and participates in the required continuing education. It is important to understand License requirements because it is illegal for investigators to conduct any kind of investigation without one.

Private Investigator in Galveston

Galveston is a beautiful island located just off the Texas coast.  It has always been an industry rich in fishing and because of this, congress made Galveston an official port of entry.  As an active port since 1837, it has welcomed so many immigrants to this country that people now refer to the city as the "Little Ellis Island."

Galveston can be a town for fun and fast paced excitement, but if you ever need help you can rely on one of our many licensed private investigators.  If you have been injured by boating or maritime accident, you should consider hiring a private investigator.  No matter what the case is, we can get all the facts straight so you get the results you are looking for.

Qualifications Requirement:
The following information is a summary of the Texas Private Security Bureau document "Company License Application Instructions and General Requirements for Licensing". Please see the full document for more detailed and complete information.

Texas law requires that a private investigator must be properly licensed to offer or engage in private investigation or security services. Offering to provide private investigator services without a license, or hiring an unlicensed private investigator to perform investigations carries a criminal penalty in the state of Texas.

Private investigation companies that are licensed by the Private Security Bureau of Texas may consist of a single person or may involve several thousand employees. Each type of company can be identified as one of the three main types of companies; sole proprietorships (single owner), partnerships (two or more owners), and corporations (established through the Office of the Texas Secretary of State).

Texas law requires that to own, manage or be employed by a licensed private investigation company, a person must:

• be at least 18 years of age;
• not have been convicted of two or more felony offenses, a single felony within the past twenty years; or a Class A misdemeanor within the past ten years;
• no be currently charged with a Class A misdemeanor or felony offense, under an information or indictment
• not have been adjudicated a having engaged in felony level delinquent conduct within the past ten years;
• not have been found by a court to be incompetent by reason of a mental defect or disease and not have been restored to competency;
• not have been dishonorably discharged from the United States armed services, discharged from the United States armed services under other conditions determined by the Board to be prohibitive, or dismissed by the United States armed services if a commissioned office in the United States armed services;
• not be required to register in this or any other state as a sex offender;
• not have charges pending for or have been convicted in any jurisdiction of a Class misdemeanor within the past five years, for an offense determined by the Board administrative rule to be disqualifying.

These requirements apply to all licensed private investigators and applicants for a private investigator license. There are additional requirements that must be met by the manager of a private investigation company.

All applicants for a private investigator license undergo criminal history checks with the State of Texas and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In addition, a licensed private investigation company must maintain, on file with the Private Security Bureau of Texas, a certificate of proof of liability which must be kept in full force and effect at all times.

Reciprocity: Texas does not have private investigator reciprocity agreements with any other states. However, if a private investigator must conduct brief business in Texas, it is generally acceptable.
