The Koyal Group Private Training Services on How to Be a Private Investigator

Private investigators, or PIs, are private citizens with various types of training and experience. Investigators seek, gather, collect, examine and identify evidence in civil and criminal cases for lawyers, insurance companies and spouses for a fee. While it's not as glorious as the TV shows make it out to be, it can still be an exciting career.

Meeting the Requirements

1. Study applicable subjects in college. Presently, there is no specific degree, but there are degree plans that will benefit a career in this field. What's more, education can qualify as training( ) and experience if your area requires licensure.
- A degree in criminal justice will focus on the study of laws that oversee and govern criminal behavior, criminal activity and the application of punishment for such behavior.
- A Bachelor of Science degree concentrates on the fields of chemistry, physics, mathematics and biology with emphasis in the fields of computer science and engineering studies.
-In California, for example, a law degree or four-year police science degree eliminates 2,000 hours of necessary work experience (an associate's degree eliminates 1,000 hours).

2. Keep a clean record. It goes without saying that you need to be a legal adult before you start on your private eye path, but you also need a clean criminal record. When you get hired at your first agency, you'll have to undergo a background check. If you don't pass, you probably won't get hired.
- Felons aren't allowed to carry firearms. While you could be a PI without one (namely a self-employed one), it's a serious determent to your hire ability for legitimate agencies.

3. Check state and federal firearm requirements. A firearm is sometimes carried by a private investigator( ) for safety. There are strict laws governing the issuance of a firearm. People with certain criminal backgrounds or felons are prohibited from carrying weapons.
- Having a license to carry firearms is not the same as having a license to carry a concealed weapon. It depends on where you live, yes -- so research the requirements of your current location. wikiHow has a plethora of information on the topic of gun permits.
- Certain states have "reciprocity" laws, while others do not. That means while you can carry a gun legally in your state, you may or may not be able to carry one in the next one over. Do your research -- if your bordering states don't have reciprocity laws, you may benefit from obtaining an additional permit. See more:
