What It Takes to Be a Private Investigator

What It Takes to Be a Private Investigator

Private investigators (PI), also known as private detectives, are often hired to obtain confidential information, uncover hidden agendas, locate missing people, and also to assist in solving crimes. You can find private investigators in a law enforcement agency like Blue Line Security & Consulting. Aside from active shooter training, we also staff the most skilled ‘private eyes’ in the state.

We don’t only provide the best security consulting in Texas; we also have private investigators ready to take on any challenge. A PI can conduct surveillance and background investigations on individuals, study crime scenes to look for clues, report information to the authorities, and even testify in court if the need arises.

Before You Become a PI
While there is no formal education requirement to become a private investor, a degree in criminal justice will certainly give you an edge. To become a private detective in our team, you will need:

  • a bachelor’s degree or have experience in a related field
  • to obtain a license from the state
  • get a concealed weapons license
  • be fingerprinted and submit to a background check
  • receive training on the job once you are hired.

Even those applying for a security guard position are subjected to a thorough screening process. This is to ensure that our clients get the best service.

Of course, not every situation requires a PI. This is why we advise you to check out our security service in Wills Point, Texas.
