Mission Statement

The purpose of the Private Investigators Licensing Board is to license private investigators, private patrolmen, process servers, repossessors, dog handlers, security consultants, polygraphic examiners and interns. Chapter 648 of Nevada Revised Statutes mandates the Board to regulate the standards of conduct for these professions in order to protect the public safety and general welfare of the people of this state. This agency is responsible for conducting background investigations on applicants, administering compliance audits of licensees, preparing disciplinary matters for Board review and investigating various complaints of misconduct of a licensee or unlicensed activity. This agency is pro-active in promoting effective regulation and enforcement; provides training and education to our licensees as well as the general public; and is focused on eliminating unlicensed activity.
