Private investigators working anywhere within Virginia’s state borders are required to be licensed by the Virginia Licensing Department. Virginia state law is designed to ensure that any private investigator working in Virginia is a competent, moral, and law-abiding citizen. In Virginia, private investigator applicants must pass a background check, provide proof of experience, and complete a training course through a state certified institution. Even after a Virginia private investigator becomes licensed, they are still required to maintain continuing education courses and renew their license every 24 months. When you contact a Suffolk private investigator from ICS, you can rest assured that your private investigator will be fully licensed, and has met or exceeded all state mandated requirements.

Private Detective in Suffolk

Suffolk Private Investigator

Suffolk has a unique political and cultural position in the country, being located in one of only four states to keep the title of “Commonwealth” in the United States. Suffolk is part of the Hampton Roads metropolitan, and today is home to just over 84,500 people. Suffolk is no exception to Virginia’s deeply American culture and lengthy history, having been founded in 1742 as a part of the original Virginia colony. Large tobacco crops originally funded the region, but later the region switched to mixed farming, which is the tradition that carries on in Virginia today. Suffolk, Virginia is a unique mix of past and present, and the rich history and local quirks affect how a private investigation should be carried out. ICS is a local private investigative agency that understands how life works in Suffolk, so if you live or work in Suffolk or the surrounding areas, contact ICS of Virginia for any of your private investigation needs, and begin your free consultation today.

ICS services every region of Virginia and accepts most case types. People often turn to private investigators to help find out if their partner is cheating. If you wonder how to begin to catch a cheating spouse, or if you just want to put your mind at ease that your partner is not having an affair, call ICS to start an Adultery, Infidelity, or Cheating Partner investigation to find out everything you need to know about your partner or spouse. People often need assistance collecting the evidence for court proceedings to determine or change child custody and child support arrangements. During the course of a Child Custody, Visitation and Support investigation ICS can help you obtain the proper documentation so you are prepared to support your claims in front of a judge. ICS can also help you get the financial data you need in order to prove the other parent is not paying their fair and required share. ICS is experienced at finding lost or missing persons, such as birth parents, missing children, and long lost friends, just to name a few. 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.

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;

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;

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.
