A detective agency or private investigator must be licensed in all but five states. Of the regulated jurisdictions, a detective agency surety bond is required in nineteen states and municipalities. A private investigator operates in a position of trust and because of the sensitive nature of information that an investigator may gather, various state laws and local codes impose financial assurance obligations on a licensee. A private investigator surety bond may be required in an amount from $1,000 to $100,000.
