Mississippi Private Investigator Licensing Requirements
Currently, a private investigator license is not required for the state of Mississippi. Since laws change frequently, those who are interested in becoming a detective, or those who are already operating as a private eye in other states, should check with the appropriate Mississippi state licensing agency to determine if a license is required.
Other special licensing requirements such as education requirements, experience requirements, examinations, and insurance may be required. In addition, a business license may be required to operate legally in the state. Check the state licensing website for more information.
