Why do I need this bond?
Colorado private investigators must submit a surety bond to comply with regulations set forth by Article 58.5 of Title Twelve of the Colorado Revised Statutes and 4 Code of Colorado Regulations 750-1. The bond is required so that any person who suffers a loss or damages due to acts or omissions on the part of the private investigator may file a claim against the bond.
What’s the fine print?
The bond must remain in effect as long as the private investigator holds their license—though the surety may choose to cancel the bond by providing written notice to the principal at least thirty days in advance.
