Why do I need this bond?

Pursuant to Title 32, Chapter 93 of the Maine Revised Statutes, investigator and investigative assistant bonds are required to protect the public from unethical and unlawful acts committed by the investigator or assistant. If the applicant fails to follow the law, a claim can be made against the bond by the city and/or any person who was injured by the company’s faulty business practices.

What’s the fine print?

Maine investigator and investigative assistant bonds remain in full-effect for 2 years unless canceled or claimed against. Principals must provide a continuation certificate to the state every 2 years for as long as they wish to maintain their license.
