PUBLIC SECURITY POLICE REQUESTS REGULATION OF PRIVATE DETECTIVE PROFESSION
The Public Security Police sent twice to the Ministry of Internal Administration through the Department of Private Security a request in the Annual Reports to regularize the profession of private detective. In documents referring to the years of 2010 (point no. 6 of item a) from page 22) and of 2011 (point nº6 of line a) from page 20) you can read the following recommendation:
- “a) The regulation of private detective activity, in particular, as to the activities
forbidden, to mandatory registrations, duties and rights and the definition of requirements
of access and maintenance of the respective license.”
past 10 years the state continues to ignore PSP requests, together with the steps taken by the League of Portuguese and European Private Detectives for the regularization of the profession, allowing it to be exercised in a free regime, without any specific legal provisions.
