GRUPPO S.I.T. holds Private Investigator License nr. 228/00 issued by the Venice Prefecture. In order to obtain a P.I. license in Italy an applicant must provide proof of verifiable experience and must undergo a thorough background investigation that includes civil, criminal, moral, financial and credit history checks. Personal and corporate financial background checks are also conducted. Italian legislation also requires that PI office locations, and their physical security measures be checked and approved. All staff-members must also be subjected to a thorough background investigation. Our PI License is endorsed for Debt Recovery and Repossession and we are also licensed for Criminal Defence Investigations (license nr. 286/01). The Italian Criminal Proceedings Code limits issue of this additional license only to established PIs with a specific experience.
