PI Licensing Bill Update
Posted April 29, 2013 in Legislative
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.
