The Maine Private Investigator Bond is required by the State of Maine, Department of Public Safety. For a Maine resident the bond amount is $10,000 and for a non-resident the bond amount is $50,000. The surety bond is one step in becoming a Licensed Private Investigator. The bond assures the state that the bondholder shall honestly conduct the business as required of such license.
A professional investigator means any person who engages/solicits business, or accepts employment, to conduct private investigations. A person may not act as a professional investigator without first obtaining a license from the Chief of the State Police.
The license fee for a Private Investigator is $500. $50 must be submitted with the application and $450 submitted upon issuance of the license. In addition, there is a $21 fee for a criminal history check.
