Private-Investigation-Degree-City-Colleg

Did you know to date, just 5 states do not require private investigators to be licensed at the state level:

Alaska

Idaho

Mississippi

South Dakota

Wyoming

The remaining 45 states (plus the District of Columbia) do license PIs, and therefore have specific licensing requirements, which include education and experience requirements, application procedures, and renewal procedures. Further, a select number of states allow private investigators to carry weapons; as such, mandatory firearms training, certification, and certification renewal are commonplace.

Generally, minimum requirements for state licensure include: being at least 21 (some states have age requirements as old as 25); possessing a high school diploma or the equivalent; and have U.S. citizenship or residency. Most states also have strict statutes prohibiting candidates who have felony convictions or misdemeanor convictions involving crimes of moral turpitude from becoming private investigators.
