Colorado Private Investigator Licensing-Update

»Posted by in Uncategorized

Many of you might have heard the news that the Governor of Colorado vetoed the private investigator licensing bill (HB20-1207) on Saturday, July 11, 2020. There has been some confusion as to what this actually means for private investigators operating in Colorado, so we will try to clarify. The current Colorado private investigator licensing program went into effect on June 1, 2015 and as with every licensing program, was given a sunset date. That is a date when legislators look at the program to see if it is working and worth continuing. The sunset date attached to that bill (which is the current law) was September 1, 2020. Therefore, the new bill (HB20-1207) was drafted in 2020 for the legislators to ask to continue the program past the sunset date and CPI...

Private Investigator Licensing-5 years in

»Posted by in Uncategorized

Colorado had been one of a handful of states without mandatory private investigator licensing, and in Colorado that had been the situation since 1977.

Today’s Private Investigator Ask anybody who has never had the opportunity to know, hire or deal with a private investigator, and you will get the TV version of what we have all come to know. The shady character who meets with the client in a darkened back alley, to receive $100 in cash, to hand over some private, illegally obtained information. If TV is the only exposure a person has had to private investigators, it is not surprising that the general public believes private investigators will hack or illegally access ANY information the client wants. For most private investigators, this could not be further from the truth. Today’s private investigators are generally professionals who have a strong desire to help people but an even stronger desire to...

Summer Surveillance

»Posted by in Uncategorized

Summer Surveillance We hear it every year and justifiably so, be sure not to leave your children or pets in a hot car in the summer. Those of us in the surveillance business would agree 100% with that statement, but then there is always a part of us thinking, “What are we doing?” Many clients or those not in the business of investigations do not understand the reality of how surveillance is conducted and how often the surveillance investigator is at the mercy of the elements to an extreme degree. Surveillance by nature, often times requires the investigator to sit stationary in a vehicle for numerous hours at a time, without moving or starting the vehicle and many times that vehicle has to be completely closed up. Ironic, it sounds exactly like the...
