Why do I need this bond?
Private detective bonds ensure that the principal (private detective) will not engage in any fraudulent activities, misrepresent themselves or impersonate a law enforcement officer while on the job according to Hawaii Act 208 Chapter 463.
If a private detective engages in unlawful acts the bond will cover the cost of the damages to the client. The private detective is responsible for reimbursing the surety up to the full bond amount.
What’s the fine print?
Hawaii private detective surety bonds are in full force for one year unless cancelled or claimed against. The surety may cancel these bonds at any time during the term by providing the Department with 30 days’ written notice.
