Bill Allowing Licensing for Colorado Private Investigators Advances

By the Denver Private Investigator Blog

DENVER – Legislation allowing Colorado private investigators to obtain licenses from the state cleared another hurdle Monday with approval by a Senate committee.

The 6-3 vote in favor of the bill by members of the Senate Judiciary committee puts Colorado one step closer to ending its status as one of only a handful of states that does not license private investigators.

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.

Senators Kevin Lundberg of Berthoud, Colo., Ellen Roberts of Durango, Colo., and Mark Scheffel of Parker, Colo., voted against the bill. The senators who voted for the bill are: Angela Giron of Pueblo, Colo., Steve King of Grand Junction, Colo., Linda Newell of Littleton, Colo., Jeanne Nicholson of Gilpin County, Colo., Lucia Guzman of Denver, and Morgan Carroll of Aurora, Colo.
