QUESTION: What are the requirements for licensure as a Private Investigator or Security Services Provider in Ohio?

ANSWER: Licensing requirements are found in Section 4749.03 of the R.C. Any individual, partnership or corporation may be licensed to conduct the business of private investigation or security services, or both, if the applicant meets the following requirements:

b. Depending upon the class of license for which application is made, for a continuous period of at least two years immediately preceding application for a license, has been engaged in investigatory or security services work for a law enforcement or other public agency engaged in investigatory activities, or for a private investigator or security guard provider, or engaged in the practice of law, or has acquired equivalent experience as determined by rule of the director of public safety.

c. Demonstrates competency as a private investigator or security guard provider by passing an examination devised for this purpose by the director of public safety.

d. Submits evidence of comprehensive general liability insurance coverage, or other equivalent guarantee approved by the director in such form and in principal amounts satisfactory to the director, but not less than one hundred thousand dollars for each person and three hundred thousand dollars for each occurrence for bodily injury liability, and one hundred thousand dollars for property damage liability.

e. Pays the requisite examination ($30 fee which is non-refundable) and license fee ($375 which is refundable if a license is not issued).

f. Satisfactorily passes the criminal background check.

g. Provides character references from at least five reputable citizens, each of whom has known the applicant, officer, or qualifying agent for at least five years preceding the application, and none of whom are connected with the applicant, officer, or qualifying agent by blood or marriage.

From a 35-year teacher of private investigation:

CA PI license test exam

WORST possible study methods:
1) seminars, and 2) studying with multiple-choice questions
(low retention percentage, too many words per actual needed knowledge)

BEST possible study method:
reading Question/Answer, Question/Answer
, Question/Answer,  . . .
(direct to memory, higher word priority)

Database Company Site Inspections
PI database site inspectiondatabase company site inspection failed

Did you know that many database companies will not give you an account until you pass a 'site visit'?
They don't tell you what they are looking for, so you can't 'prepare'.

Many visits fail, and usually neither the inspector nor the database company will not tell why it failed!
It's hard to pass if you are in an office building-- but it is far harder to pass if your office is at home.

We have the secret list of what they might ask during the site visit-- and what they are secretly looking for!
Ask us to include this secret list, and we will.

4. Send a check, but we put long holds on

due to getting bad checks back 13 days later,

From 1990 through 2023, we took credit cards,

We're tired of the 'bad numbers', the delays, the costs,
the 'bank mistakes', the excuses, 'its my wife's fault', and so on.

We make too little on these packages for such headaches.
So unless we are to raise our prices, if you can't come in to
pick up a package then there's only one way to send a shipment to you
if you need it faster then by sending payment by regular mail:
you simply overnight us a money order. It doesn't have to be a costly and
time-consuming one issued by a bank--
a grocery store or a post office money order or a 7-11 money order is fine.
