Connecticut Association of Licensed Private Investigators
Find the Professional you need
Report Unlawful Activity
CALPI is committed to ensuring that only licensed professionals conduct private investigative services in Connecticut.  Licensing ensures that only qualified and fully vetted individuals, who are experienced, insured and bonded are trusted with such responsibility.   
Connecticut General Statue 29-153, requires that any person or firm wishing to conduct business as a Private Detective Service in this state, must first obtain a professional license from the Commissioner of Emergency Services and Public Protection.

Private Detective services are also required to register all employees working as investigators under their license. The Special Licensing & Firearms Unit of the State Police is responsible for processing the license applications and employee registrations, as well as investigating complaints concerning violations of the license statutes.
