SPECIAL ACCESS TO RECORDS FOR PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS REMOVED FROM CO LICENCING BILL

DENVER, CO. – Legislation that would permit private investigators to obtain a license from the state was unanimously approved by members of a House committee Tuesday, but not before a provision entitling licensed investigators  to access to some records not available to anyone else was removed from the bill.

House Bill 1195, sponsored by House Judiciary Committee chair Bob Gardner of Colorado Springs, would establish a licensing system requiring private investigators to obtain a license if they want to call themselves a “licensed private investigator.”

The legislation would end Colorado’s status as one of three states that do not license PIs.

Under the licensing system created by the bill, licenses could be issued to PIs who have no felony convictions or class one misdemeanor convictions for the past 10 years, and who have 4,000 hours of work experience or 2,000 hours plus some form of as-yet unspecified post-secondary education.

  1. One needs to consider which is more important though: Privacy or family. As a basic institution of society, the family often weighs more. It is understandable it a spouse will contact an investigator if he or she has reason to believe that there is something wrong in his or her marriage life for reasons like suspected drug abuse, criminal activities, or extra-marital involvements.
