Private Investigator Training in Virginia

A new batch of potential P.I.s arrived in for training at the headquarters of SEXTON yesterday morning.

During the first day of training, students learned about the Governmental body which regulates private security in the Commonwealth of Virginia; the Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).

They also learned about laws governing covert surveillance and voice recording, stalking, GPS tracking devices, interviewing and interrogation, how to open a P.I. firm and the licensing. That all in the first day!

Today, students are receiving a lecture from a court officer on the judicial system, how to properly testify, accompanying a client to obtain a restraining order from the Magistrate, etc.

I would say look out for the new graduates…..but after the top tier training they receive this week, you won’t know who they are!

Private Investigator Training – 2/26 – 3/4/11.


Have you ever considered a career as an investigator? If so, you may wish to avail of training that will allow you to become a State registered P.I.

The Sexton Executive Security Training Academy is certified by the Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) and all graduates are eligible to become registered as Private Investigators upon successful completion of training.

During the 7 consecutive days of training which run from 8:30am until 5:30pm, attendees will learn; the court system from a County Magistrate, be involved in a practical exercise to assist a client in applying for a protective order, learn how to conduct courthouse and online database research, undercover disguises, how to conduct surveillance and counter-surveillance, how to interview and interrogate, how to start a P.I. business, ethics, rules and regulations, etc.

Once you have obtained your P.I. registration and have been issued with your State I.D., you are able to apply to work for any company you decide upon. As providers of P.I. and E.P. services, we hire our own graduates exclusively, but there are countless opportunities for investigators in many areas.

Federal, State and local authorities constantly recruit full time investigators for Inspector General positions, internal auditing as well as offering outsourced opportunities when conducting background checks, workman’s comp investigations etc.
