Private Investigators - Security - Alarm Installation & Monitoring

  The Arkansas State Police is statutorily charged with duties to administer the rules and licensing of private investigators, private security agencies, alarm system companies, polygraph examiners and voice stress analysis examiners.

  A copy of the applicable statutes and rules can be found elsewhere on this page.

  Act 393 of 2015 adopted by the Arkansas General Assembly repealed and replaced several provisions of A.C.A. §17-39-101 et seq. and §17-40-101 et seq.

  Arkansas maintains reciprocal agreements relating to private investigator licenses issued by the states of Tennessee, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. 

  Should you have questions regarding those individuals or companies regulated by the State Police or if you are seeking assistance in obtaining a license, you may email the Arkansas State Police Regulatory Services Division or call the office at 501-618-8600.
