Criminal Identification (BCI) Menu

Application Processing Timeline

Once the Bureau receives your application, a background investigation will be conducted.

The registrant and agency applications will then be reviewed by the Private Investigator Hearing and Licensure Board for recommendation of issuance. The Private Investigator Hearing and Licensure Board meets once a quarter.

The apprentice applicants are issued a license in 5 business days after BCI receives a complete application if the applicant has no disqualifying criminal history.

Do not call the Bureau regarding the status of your application unless you have not received notification within this time frame.
