When you contact ICS for a private investigation in Prince William County, you can rest assured that any private investigator we put on your case will be licensed and meet all of the state’s requirements. Private investigators who operate anywhere within Virginia need to be licensed through the Virginia state licensing board. To obtain licensure, private investigator applicants must prove they have completed the required experience, including a minimum of 60 hours of a private investigations course at a state certified school. Private investigators must also submit finger print cards and pass a background check before they can obtain the legal title of private investigator. In addition to these industry regulations, Virginia private investigators are also required to renew their license every 24 months to ensure that they are keeping up to date on the latest regulations and techniques, and have completed all necessary continuing education courses.

Prince William Private Detective

Prince William Private Investigator

Virginia is a diverse and historic state, and the characteristics that define Prince William County are also what make private investigations in this region different. Prince William is home to just over 402,000 people as of the 2010 census, and is one of the highest income counties in the entire United States. Located in Northern Virginia, Prince William County is part of the Washington Metropolitan Area, and has for its county seat the independent city Manassas. These local details make private investigations in Prince William different than anywhere else in America, so hire a local Prince William private investigator that understands how your town works. Call ICS or submit an online consultation form to speak to a Virginia private investigator and begin your free consultation today.

ICS services all regions of Virginia, and accepts most case types, including adultery, child custody, and missing person cases. Anyone who needs to catch their cheating partner in the act, or suspect that their spouse is displaying the common signs of cheating should call ICS to start an Adultery, Infidelity, or Cheating Partner investigation. Don’t sit around worrying and wondering anymore, call ICS and find out once and for all if your spouse or partner is cheating. If you think your marriage is over, due to an affair or otherwise, you may need special documentation to proceed with a divorce or child custody, visitation, or support hearing in Virginia. Let ICS help you get the information and proof you need for your court date with a Child Custody, Visitation and Support investigation. Are you struggling to get your child support payments from a deadbeat dad or deadbeat mom? ICS can help you track down the other parent and find the paperwork you need in order to prove they are not paying their share. ICS is experienced in locating lost or missing persons, whether a crime was committed or not. If you would like to reconnect with a lost loved one, such as a distant relative, birth parent, or high school crush, ICS can help even though the police would be unable to investigate these types of cases. State police can only help locate missing persons if a crime is involved, which often does not even include runaway children. Instead, call ICS for a Locate Lost People investigation to find who you are looking for.

ICS also provides a wide variety of surveillance and counterintelligence services, employing state of the art equipment and techniques to keep you safe and free from unwelcome eavesdropping. Another service ICS can perform is computer and cellular forensics to retrieve data or to confirm and remove spyware or other malicious software. Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) can be taken by ICS to ensure that the technology you depend on every day is not leaking information about you, your business, or your personal life. TSCM involves sweeping for and removing bugs, and other forms of electronic surveillance. ICS also performs pre-employment screening, which help eliminate the constant worry about the criminal or legal history of potential employees that most employers feel during the interview and hiring process.

ICS accepts these case types and more. If you did not see your case type listed above, do not worry; these are just a few of the cases we take. Call ICS today to begin your free consultation, or submit the free consultation form online, and tell us more about your case. Private investigators from ICS are available 24 hours a day, and no case is too large or too small, so please feel comfortable contacting us today.

Qualifications Requirement:
A. Prior to the issuance of a business license, the applicant shall meet or exceed the requirements of licensing and application submittal to the department as set forth in this section.

B. Each person seeking a license as a private security services business shall file a completed application provided by the department including:

1. For each principal and supervisor of the applying business, their fingerprints pursuant to 6VAC20-171-30;

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;

3. For each nonresident applicant for a license, on a form provided by the department, a completed irrevocable consent for the department to serve as service agent for all actions filed in any court in this Commonwealth;

4. For each applicant for a license as a private security services business except sole proprietor or partnership, on a form provided by the department, the identification number issued by the Virginia State Corporation Commission for verification that the entity is authorized to conduct business in the Commonwealth;

5. A physical address in Virginia where records required to be maintained by the Code of Virginia and this chapter are kept and available for inspection by the department. A post office box is not a physical address;

6. On the license application, designation of at least one individual as compliance agent who is not designated as compliance agent for any other licensee, and who is certified or eligible for certification pursuant to 6VAC20-171-70;

7. The applicable, nonrefundable license application fee; and

8. Designation on the license application of the type of private security business license the applicant is seeking. The initial business license fee includes one category. A separate fee will be charged for each additional category. The separate categories are identified as follows: security officers/couriers (armed and unarmed), private investigators, electronic security, armored car, personal protection specialists, and security canine handlers. Alarm respondents crossover into both the security officer and electronic security category; therefore, if an applicant is licensed in either of these categories, he can provide these services without purchasing an additional category.

C. Upon completion of the initial license application requirements, the department may issue an initial license for a period not to exceed 24 months.

D. The department may issue a letter of temporary licensure to businesses seeking licensure under § 9.1-139 of the Code of Virginia for not more than 120 days while awaiting the results of the state and national fingerprint search conducted on the principals and compliance agent of the business, provided the applicant has met the necessary conditions and requirements.

E. A new license is required whenever there is any change in the ownership or type of organization of the licensed entity that results in the creation of a new legal entity.

F. Each license shall be issued to the legal business entity named on the application, whether it be a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, or other legal entity, and shall be valid only for the legal entity named on the license. No license shall be assigned or otherwise transferred to another legal entity, with the exception of a sole proprietorship or partnership that incorporates to form a new corporate entity where the initial licensee remains as a principal in the newly formed corporation. This exception shall not apply to any existing corporation that purchases the business or assets of an existing sole proprietorship.

G. Each licensee shall comply with all applicable administrative requirements and standards of conduct and shall not engage in any acts prohibited by applicable sections of the Code of Virginia and this chapter.

H. Each licensee shall be a United States citizen or legal resident alien of the United States.
