Licenses, Registrations and Bonds (Oh, MY!)

If you're a Private Investigator in the State of California, you absolutely MUST be licensed by the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS). Some of the things that require a license are skip tracing, providing reports on the habits, where-a-bouts, assets and other personal stuff about another person, including "cheating spouses". If someone is advertising that they are a Private Investigator, or that they perform any of the services that require a license, then they also have to list their Private Investigator license number. Anybody can write their own reviews and make it seem like they're really "great", "fantastic", "wonderful", (blah blah blah) at what they do. Before you give them any money, check them out at Bureau of Security and Investigative Services.

Also, professional Process Servers in the State of California have to be Registered in the county where they work from primarily. The County Clerk is the place to check to make sure your Process Server is properly registered. Registrations have to be renewed either on or before the date they're due. If that doesn't happen, the Process Server has to start all over again with the bond and registration (etc), AND if they pass the Department of Justice and FBI checks, they'll get a new number. There isn't any place to check them on-line, so call either the County Clerk's office or the Sheriff-Court Services in the county you are concerned about. Or make them show you a valid, current PERMANENT identification card.

You'll also want to check out any Contractors, Accountants, and Attorneys, too.

Take care and be aware! It's a crazy world out there. If you want to send me an email, get our license numbers, or look at my website, go to RASCAL. We're here to help you.
