SERIES - PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR LICENSING - Part 5

Part 5 in our series to highlight the licensing requirements for Australia Private Investigators.

Did you know Victorian Investigators operating under an Australia Business Number (ABN) require a Security Business Licence?

During the past three years we have had extensive conversations with the Licensing and Regulation Division of the Victorian Police. Although the answer was initially unclear we continually sort an answer to the question, "Do I require a Business Security Licence to operate my own Private Investigation Business in Victoria?"

Eventually we were able to obtain a clear answer. It is an offence to carry on the business of providing certain private security services without a private security business licence.
