Last year a new law was passed making licensing of private investigators in Colorado mandatory. We are excited to let you know that we are now both charter mandatory licensed private investigators in Colorado, effective June 1st.
Although we have every reason to believe being licensed does not change any faith our clients and colleagues have in us and our services, being licensed is as important to us as it is to you.
Together we have nearly 50 years of legal investigative experience, including and a combined official death investigation experience of over nine years at a busy and unique coroner/medical examiner’s office.

Colorado's voluntary licensure program was repealed in June 2014 after the passage of mandatory licensure, which will be effective June 01, 2015. At that time ALL persons asserting to be a private investigator and providing services defined by statute will have to be licensed (there are exemptions for in-house investigators and other limited persons (see the rules and statute). Reporting of operating without a license is mandatory - and with the cost of licensure, reporting non-compliance assures both consumer and professional protection from unlicensed activity.
Beginning in March, the online application process was opened by DORA. The basic requirements for Level I and Level II are the same. These are:
-- Be 21 years of age or older and a US citizen;
-- Passing a jurisprudence exam on the rules, regulations and statutes of being a Colorado Licensed Private Investigator;
-- Passing a Colorado and FBI fingerprint criminal background check;
-- Securing a $10,000 surety bond for consumer protection; and
Our agency principals are Level II, which requires the additional proof of 4,000 hours or greater of experience (education can be included for up to 2,000 hours).
