Thinking of becoming a private eye or running a security firm? The first step is to obtain the proper state license.

Every state has a licensing division for private investigators and security (also known as watchguard) companies. You’ll need to pass an exam based on P.I. and Security License Law. In addition, New York State requires a $10,000 license surety bond. These bonds have a two-year duration and can be obtained through the DEA’s insurance consultant, The Mechanic Group, for only $125.00. The State of New York also requires all security companies to purchase liability insurance with minimum limits of $300,000 per occurence. Workers compensation and state disability is also required if your firm has any employees, independent contractors, or has more than two officers. All of these items are available from The Mechanic Group.
