When hiring a Private Investigator or Detective the first thing you should do is ask to see their licenses. Each Agency is required to have a Manager that holds a manager license as well as having a current license from the Texas Department of Public Safety. The Detective has to hold a Private Investigator license. These are the number one thing to check for. There are a lot of people who may not be licensed, or carrying an expired license. The last thing you want is for your case to be thrown out because the investigator was not operating within the constraints of the law. You can research any agency for their license Status at the TxDPS - Private Security Bureau.
