The State of Texas requires that investigators are licensed. The licensing agency is the Department of Public Safety or DPS. Operating without a license in the State of Texas is a crime that includes penalties that include prison time and significant fines. The rules that regulate investigators are conducted by the DPS and are actively enforced. It is important that the investigator be able to produce the company and investigator license upon request.
