PI Licensing Bill Update

SB 13-259 Mandatory Private Investigators Licensing Bill submitted by PPIAC, has passed the Senate Committee, however, not in its original form. Licensing has been changed to mandatory “Registration”.  The apprenticeship program has been eliminated and the only requirements to become a “Registered Private Investigator” in Colorado, is to pass an open book test, a background check and obtain a surety bond.

Process Servers are currently excluded from obtaining the designation of “Registered Private Investigator”, as long as their inquiries are in efforts to effect service of process.

The Bill will be presented to the full Senate, Monday and is expected to pass. The Bill will then be presented to the House before the end of the legislative session.



For Process Servers and Investigators currently using TLO, I have an important message. TLO is not dead nor are they going out business. I would recommend not terminating service.

TLO has hired 50 programmers to fix the issues and import data from new vendors, which they state, would provide home based process servers and investigators the same data and access level available prior to TLO’s current issue. TLO went on to state, the ability to locate individuals should improve and be more stable than before.

It is not my place to state the true issues regarding limiting of data to home based process servers and investigators, however my source agrees the issue could have and should have been handled better. My source assures me, the internet rumors are not true. I have been asked to contact my source on Monday, May 13, 2013 for an update.


Stay tuned!
