Description of Private Investigations in San Antonio

San Antonio Private Investigator Territory

San Antonio Private Investigator

A San Antonio private investigator must apply to the Texas Private Security Bureau and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check, like any private investigator in Texas. While many San Antonio 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.

You can rest assured that any San Antonio private investigator assigned to your case with ICS of Texas is fully licensed and insured in accordance with Texas state laws and participates in the required continuing education. It is important for you to have this assurance, as it is equally criminal in the State of Texas to hire an unlicensed private investigator as it is to operate a private investigation company without a license.

San Antonio is the seventh largest city in the United States, with a population of over 1.3 million, and is the seat of Bexar County. San Antonio has a large military presence, with numerous bases, camps and forts in its vicinity, and is home to the South Texas Medical Center.

San Antonio is famous for its River Walk, an important part of the city's identity and a popular tourist attraction. The River Walk is a series of walkways along the banks of the San Antonio River, lined by bars, shops, and restaurants connecting the Alamo to the Rivercenter Mall. The Alamo is another major tourist attraction that San Antonio is known for, as the historic site of the infamous Battle of the Alamo.

San Antonio has an extensive road system, like most cities in Texas. In addition, San Antonio is host to the San Antonio International Airport. San Antonio also has a metropolitan transit system to alleviate traffic, called the VIA Metropolitan Transit.

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.

Testing: Testing is required for a Private Investigator License in the State of Texas.

Fees: Class A Fee: $350.00 registration fee + $11.00 subscription fee= $361.00

Renewal Information: $350.00 registration fee + $11.00 subscription fee= $361.00
