SERIES - PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR LICENSING - PART 2

When looking for a Private Investigator in NSW do you check for licence numbers in their advertisements? As part of our current series on licensing issues we found this information on the NSW Police website.

Q3 - Why do I need to put my Master licence number in advertisements?

It is a condition of a master licence to display the licence number on any advertisement or correspondence in relation to any CAPI activity carried on by the licensee. This demonstrates legitimacy to the general public and serves to distinguish and promote your business over other unlicensed CAPI businesses.
