Many people don’t realize there are many services a private investigator can provide. The industry today far surpasses the “Colombo” days. The industry today is full of professional, ethical and moral individuals. Some private investigators only specialize in certain areas while others are a full service agency. Many of the services provided, that the general public is not aware of, include the following:
Most private investigators, but not all, come from Law Enforcement backgrounds or criminal justice degrees and/or careers. Their training and experience alone can expose them to resources and tools that the average person does not. Furthermore, most individuals don’t have the time, education, legal liability knowledge, skills or training to perform an investigation on their own. Many individuals do not want their own privacy compromised. There are many risks involved in performing an investigation and it is best to let the professionals, who have the knowledge, perform the task.
