In Illinois, a Private Detective is the license holder. A Private Investigator must work for a Private Detective through the Private Detective’s Agency. As a side note, a Private Detective Agency must be a Corporation. The Private Detective holds the State License and the Private Investigator does not. He is only an employee. Many times I have seen where both of those terms are interchanged. Even I use those two terms interchanged on this website. Hum? And now you know. Stay Safe.
The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program defines robbery as the taking or attempting to take anything of value from the care, custody, or control of a person or persons by force or threat of force or violence and/or by putting the victim in fear.
The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program defines burglary as the unlawful entry of a structure to commit a felony or theft. To classify an offense as a burglary, the use of force to gain entry need not have occurred. The UCR Program has three subclassifications for burglary: forcible entry, unlawful entry where no force is used, and attempted forcible entry. The UCR definition of “structure” includes apartment, barn, house trailer or houseboat when used as a permanent dwelling, office, railroad car (but not automobile), stable, and vessel (i.e., ship).
Just a quick tip to save your butt. When you see a police car behind you with lights and siren, pull to the right.

Stay safe.
