Why would I use a private detective or a private investigator as they are often known
How Private Investigators are saving businesses millions and changing lives. Why a P.I.?
The world of Private Investigation is foreign to many who have never utilized the benefit, knowledge base and seasoned expertise. For those that have taken into account the many advantages of using a skilled private investigator their accomplishments are rewarded with repeat business and many referrals. When local, state and federal law enforcement is unwilling or unable to help the Private Investigator steps in.
In the Workplace
Investigators have been introduced to the workplace to investigate a multitude of situations such as work place violence and harassment, theft or misappropriation of company information and employee quality controls and drug use. Often businesses find their “hands tied” when it comes to dealing with challenges such as these and seek out the impartial, third party know-how of the Investigators. A quality Investigator is constantly honing their skills and gaining the latest techniques in order to assist their client’s needs. These investigators are trained in the art of Interrogation & Interview, evidence collection, legal investigation practices and thus can easily handle the often tedious job of uncovering the truth with employee disputes or harassment claims – producing the essential evidence a company needs to make a calculated decisions and often avoiding costly lawsuits – while also documenting the evidence to appropriately discipline the parties.
In the Home
Often satired in movies and television as the person who catches a cheating spouse, this in fact is a part of the industry. Although, Investigators have had a greater impact on families over the years while investigating missing children, wrongful death, finding lost love ones, investigating senior citizen and child abuses, locating stolen or lost property, uncovering and preventing harassment and property damage.
With the Insurance Company
People get injured in the work place and often the company is liable and/or provides the means to support that injured worker and they do so with pride. But, sometimes people choose to take advantage of a business’s willingness to stand behind their employees. These people live with their choices by thinking “the company can afford it” or “that’s why they have insurance”. These people are thieves and they are stealing from their companies as willingly as if they took cash out of a register. Often the company or insurer is left only to wonder if rumors or clues are true and that in fact the injured is well and taking advantage. In such instances, investigators step in and legally and without intrusion find the truth, get answers, vindicate the innocent and collect the proof necessary to close the book on the guilty.
A seasoned Investigator has been involved in a multitude of investigations that provided them real world experience. It is one thing to read a book or article on theft, break-ins or fraud and completely another to have spent a lifetime investigating these incidents and observing the practical uses of today’s technology.
Investigators are often utilized as credible consultants to assess a business’s vulnerability and exposure to current and/or future theft or fraud. The strategies to manage risk include transferring the risk to another party, avoiding the risk, reducing the negative effect of the risk and/or accepting some or all of the consequences of a particular risk.
Technology is constantly changing and those within the industry are researching and testing products as they become available to offer their clients concrete facts.
Positive approaches are taken by changing the way in which you carry out an activity or method.
Within the Legal Process
Often behind the scenes, Investigators are the attorney’s main arm that reaches out to witnesses – be it on the scene, with law enforcement, at the courts and virtually any area that requires the collection of evidence. Almost any case type, be it probate, civil or criminal; Investigators are utilized in going out into the field to collect the proof. Widely used by attorneys to locate and solicit a witness or first account statements, the properly trained Investigator can be invaluable to developing a case.
When there is a question, an incomplete collection of fact or simply the need for verification; it is often the Private Investigator that is able to provide solutions and answers. When no one else is competent, willing or able to help it is time to reach out and consult the assistance of a seasoned professional expert.
