Private investigating companies can help you to find lost or missing people. They can check public records and court filings, conduct interviews, and perform audio and video surveillance.
How do private investigators track you?
Private investigating companies can also help solve unsolved crimes. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program states that in 2018, more than 54.5 percent of violent and property crimes were unsolved. Other types of unsolved cases include missing persons, missing money, and homicide.
Some investigators have a background in patents or trademarks. In that case, they might focus on intellectual property theft. Regardless of the specific field of investigation, investigators are trained to use sound judgment to gather facts and determine the best course of action.
Typically, most private investigation firms work on a case-by-case basis. This means that they will collect information, investigate the crime, and then deliver the results to their client.
The most common reason to hire a private investigator is surveillance. Investigators can use a GPS device to track a subject’s movements for a daily fee. Depending on the case, they may also interview suspects, witnesses, or other parties.
Private investigators can also review printed documents for evidence. This can include tax liens, bankruptcies, and other financial assets.
Companies that offer private investigator services should be licensed. Each state has specific requirements. For example, Alaska requires school accreditation, a clean criminal record, and training. While most private detectives do not have a statewide licensing procedure, some states have reciprocity agreements with other states.
