Virginia Private Investigator

Local Virginia Private Investigator

Private Investigators in Virginia 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.

Virginia Private Investigator

State of Virginia License # 11-7105

A private investigator in Virginia must apply to the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check. While many Virginia 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 Virginia, it is against the law to provide the services of a private investigator without a Virginia Private Investigator License. You can rest assured that when Nelson is assigned to your case with ICS of Virginia he and his staff are fully licensed and insured in accordance with Virginia State Laws and participates in the required continuing education.

2. Documentation verifying that the applicant has secured a surety bond in the amount of $100,000 executed by a surety company authorized to do business in Virginia, or a certificate of insurance reflecting the department as a certificate holder, showing a policy of comprehensive general liability insurance with a minimum coverage of $100,000 and $300,000 issued by an insurance company authorized to do business in Virginia;
