What is a Private Investigator?
A Private Investigator is a professional trained in the art of investigations and surveillance. In most states, a license is mandatory. Like with an attorney or doctor, the State has mandated that certain qualifications, training and experience be required for licensure to protect the public from those who do not have the experience or qualifications to do the job correctly. A private investigator’s training is usually varied and tends to focus on a certain area, again much like a lawyer. Often times that experience comes from law enforcement, military and research backgrounds. The crux of a private investigators capability is to take whatever information their client has and to go find whatever information or evidence the client needs to know. The work that a private investigator does is strictly confidential and stays between you and them.
A good private investigator can confidentially get you the answers you need, quickly, accurately and affordably.
What does a Private Investigator actually do?
The job of a private investigator is to gather information for businesses and individuals. They work on many different types of cases and frequently are found assisting attorneys, businesses and the public with a variety of legal, financial and personal problems. Most private investigators are trained to perform functions like surveillance, research and interviewing. They also have access to computer databases and searches, that the public does not, which allow them to quickly obtain large amounts of information. Because of the nature of their work, they also can be called to testify in court.
