WHAT IS M.A.P.I.S.O. ?

Pursuant to Montana State statutes and regulations anyone, with the exception of an insurance adjuster, who conducts any type of investigations for any type of consideration must be properly licensed by the State. Prior to hiring any Private Investigator or Security Officer you are strongly encouraged to first determine that the person has a current license issued by the Department of Labor.
