DORA posts first step of instructions for Colorado private investigator licensing

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies has posted its instructions for fingerprint background checks to be used in applications for private investigator licenses. House Bill 11-1195 passed last year and is scheduled to go into effect July 1.

It is a voluntary licensing bill, and DORA says it will charge private investigators that choose to get the license $320 for the first year, and the amount is necessary in order to pay for the entire cost of the licensing program. DORA estimates that 250 private investigators will apply for the license this year.
