Our License


For most people, hiring a private investigator is a new experience. In Texas, private investigators are licensed by the State, through the Department of Public Safety. To operate an investigations or security company, or to perform investigations without a license  is a crime in our state. In order for a company to be licensed, it must have a manager or owner who has passed a licensing exam, been the subject of an FBI criminal background check, provided documentation of appropriate experience or training, is actively completing ongoing continuing education, and carries insurance coverage of at least $200,000 (at OI we carry three times the required state minimums, for both your protection and ours). Licensed investigators have access to information that is not legally available to the general public. They often provide support for both civil and criminal investigations, including testimony about the information discovered during their investigation. Unlicensed investigators can provide none of this, because their actions are illegal. Unless you are wanting criminal actions performed, there are no benefits to hiring an unlicensed individual.
