Not just anyone can put up a shingle and claim to be a private investigator in the state of Florida. Private Investigators are deemed credible people with serious responsibilities by the state of Florida and they must be licensed by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Division of Licensing. Otherwise they could be prosecuted as criminals, if they act as professional private investigators anywhere in the state.
In most cases to become a private investigator to pass the license test a candidate will need to have taken a college course or a state licensing class. Also, often firearms licenses are needed so state certified firearms classes must be taken and a test must be taken and passed for that as well. Take a look at many of the duties that private investigators perform in the course of their work, and you’ll see why Florida takes Private Investigation Certifications and Requirements so seriously:
