Connecticut Private Detective Agency Requirements

A Private Investigator or Private Detective?

In the State of Connecticut, the terms ‘private investigator’ or ‘private detective’, are interchangeable. The state issues several types of private detective licenses. Some of these licenses are restricted to a particular area of investigations for example ‘Arson’.

Connecticut Investigative Services has no investigative restriction and our experience allows us to handle even the most challenging investigations.

A private investigator (detective) should be a professional that is trained in investigations, surveillance, and information gathering, to name a few areas. The investigator should have contacts and professional associations with members of law enforcement, private sector investigators, the courts, attorneys and other individuals that can supply information when needed.

Every Private Investigator or Detective agency in Connecticut is licensed, bonded and insured either through the company they work for or as the licensee. If they are not, they can not practice as private investigators in this state. There is a minimum requirement that all private investigators and detectives in Connecticut have to meet. Minimum qualification equals minimum results.

This is where choosing an investigator becomes important. The ability to take photos of an accident scene does not make an investigator an accident investigator. Just as taking a couple of statements and reviewing a case does not make a person a homicide investigator. Investigative knowledge and abilities requires years of practice and learning.

This is where Connecticut Investigative Services surpasses other agencies. Our investigators have worked homicide investigations, fatal accident investigations and reconstruction, undercover investigations. We have supervised investigative units, controlled major crime scenes, developed evidence, followed up leads and testified in court. All of this done while working on major metropolitan police departments, at times at great risk to personal safety. Why hire investigators with less skill for the some money?
