Experts in investigation

Here I am once again trying to explain things to people. But I have to tell you don't expect excellent writing since that's not what I do. I am a Private Investigator. Answering questions and putting pen to paper, for a writer is easy if one is familiar with the topic or wants to learn about a certain topic. Or so I am told. Some may even have resources and methods they alone have access to of how they can gather information. However writing about Private Investigations and what exactly does a private investigator do becomes a daunting task if this is your field of expertise and industry.

Let me first engage you in a small history class of Private Investigations. The first known private investigations firm was founded in 1833 by a French crook, soldier, and criminal privateer by the name of Eugène François Vidocq. It was called Le Bureau Des Renseignments (Office of Intelligence). Needless to say most who worked there were also criminals. Vidocq is known for making the first plaster casts as well as introduced record keeping, ballistics, and criminology. It was not until 1850 that Allen Pinkerton established the first detective/security guard agency in the US that this form of discipline was born then slowly perfected around the world.

In the United States this is a thriving industry. There are more Private Detective agencies here than anywhere else in the world. Sadly enough it's due to lack of good police work, the desire to have answers if you are a suspicious spouse or partner and the demand in high profile cases where there services are required. In most cases Private investigators specialize within certain industries. Whether they are working in criminal cases or civil cases. This is where specialization comes into play. I personally have been working on high profile cases which I am not at liberty to discuss, however suffice it to say computer forensics and due diligence have played a major role in my success rate. In today's market technology is key. Access to top surveillance equipment along with strategic thinking and many years of experience are but a few disciplines one will master throughout their career.

In order to understand what why and how we do things one must consider what type of personality would want to do this for a living. Consider your sense of adventure and your sharp Sherlock Holmes thinking throw in a little bit of espionage and charm shake it around with some criminal background and an understanding of how criminals and law breakers think and you have a successful Private Detective.

A normal day for a private investigator or as most like to call them a PI can verge on the extraordinary, fascinating, mind blowing, and yes even boring. We are hired to locate people, to serve people to protect them, sometimes to just watch them. That in itself can be fascinating or absolutely boring, but it's a job that has allowed me to travel the country and the globe that I enjoy.

In conclusion my expertise and 30 years of working in this industry has given me some happy memories and some not so happy ones. I get involved with each case personally, from small details to finding new ways of using the resources available to me. The breakdowns for specializations are best described in 4 categories. From Criminal Investigations to Corporate Investigations, Insurance Investigations, and last but not least Civil Investigations.

If you were interested in Criminal Investigations, then you would be dealing with Homicide Robbery Sex Crimes Racketeering. If you want to get into Corporate Investigations, then you would deal with Security issues to Consulting on Sexual Discrimination, Acquisition, Profiling, and White Collar Crimes. For years I worked as an Insurance Investigator and had to work on cases that involved Workers Compensation, Liability Accident - Auto/Fire. The last is the bread and butter of this industry Civil Investigations, this involved Divorce, Custody/Recovery Statements to name a few.

What a PI can do for us?

A good PI firm will offer a wide array of services to their clients. There is some overlap between categories but they are usually dived into services for individuals, corporate services and technology based services.

When an individual hires a PI they are often looking for help with very personal issues. The most popular reasons to hire a PI firm falls into this category. Some situations that you will need investigators help are:

• Missing persons - The police can not usually help you until a certain amount of time has elapsed, in case the person in question has gone on a trip or left of their own accord. That persons loved ones may know that something is wrong much faster and then it's best to hire a Private Investigations firm to start looking for them immediately.
• Divorce - This is the most popular reason for hiring an Alpharetta Private Detective When you need proof of your spouses adultery then hiring a PI is often the only way to get it.
• Support or custody - When people move or change their name the courts don't have the resource to track them down. In this situation people find it best to have an Private Detective dedicated to finding the deadbeat dad or mom. If one parent is awarded custody of a young person that does not always mean that they will always be the best choice. If that parent's circumstances change and begin to endanger the young an Private Detective can gather the evidence needed to have the son/daughter removed.

When businesses find that they need help with Private Investigations it involves much less emotional subjects. A PI form can help companies with:

• Background checks - generally companies use online services to find out about future or present employees. That information is sometimes unverified or has been keyed in error so they will hire a PI firm that does an in depth check of someone.
• Loss prevention - Some stores cannot afford to hire a full time security person to protect their store from theft so a private investigator is an economical option.
• Workers comp - While anyone injured on the job deserves compensation, some employees will lie about an incident to get benefits and not have to work anymore. Those claims hurt productivity and moral so store owners will hire an PI to verify the claim.
• Fraud - This is just like workers comp cases but the fraud is about anything in which the person intended to deceive. The only way to find the truth about fraud is to hire a PI to watch them and gather evidence of the deception.

The last reason to hire a PI is for computer forensics and the need for it is growing every day. So much crime is done with computers that a PI needs to be trained in how to track security access and ways to recover information form a hard drive that was erased or formatted. Often times they will have to track perpetrators through data streams back to the point of origin.

One of the top Private Investigation firms is Silent Parnet PI. They offer all the above services. There is a link below to their site for more information.

Advanced Investigative Services

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, private detectives and private investigators are often hired to help individuals, businesses, and attorneys. Their responsibilities often include finding and analyzing information and connecting clues to uncover facts pertaining to their clients' legal, financial, or personal matters. This profession has been around since the early 19th century.

The first private investigator in history created his investigation firm in 1833. Eugène François Vidocq was a French criminal and privateer. He made many advances in the field, and is often credited with introducing record-keeping, criminology, and ballistics to the process of criminal investigation. In addition, he was the first to create plaster casts of shoe impressions - techniques that are still widely used today. Vidocq's private investigation firm sparked a new industry for retired police and military officers, as well as the average citizen who wishes to become a private investigator.

One of the first detective agencies in the U.S. was the Pinkerton National Detective Agency - established by Allan Pinkerton in 1850. Perhaps most famous for foiling the assassination plot on President Lincoln, Pinkerton's private investigators often performed undercover investigations and armed security. In the late 19th century, during a period of union unrest in the US, many Pinkerton agents were hired as armed guards and operatives to keep the strikers and unionists away from the factories. Pinkerton agents were also used to track famous western outlaws, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kit, the Wilt Bunch, and Jesse James. Their logo was an eye and the words "We Never Sleep" - this inspired the widely known and still used term of "Private Eye."

That first private investigation agency has become an entire industry that assists clients with custody cases, marital infidelity investigations, abuse investigations, executive protection, background investigations, and computer forensics. The rise of social issues in today's world, such as infidelity and unionization, has created new types of work for detective agencies. Insurance fraud had also become more common, and therefore private investigators have had to start investigating fraud. In addition to these services, many investigators also provide services that aren't typically associated with the profession, including the personal delivery of summons, tracking of debtors, and technical surveillance counter-measures.

Many individuals who choose to go into this field of investigation are ex-police officers or ex-military, former bodyguards or security guards. Many, however, are simply average citizens with no military or police experience. Most investigators are required to be licensed, and they must keep detailed notes and be ready and willing to testify in court.

Although the primary job of this profession is to gather information and perform surveillance, there are some things that they are not allowed to do. The laws concerning the abilities of private investigators vary from state to state and country to country. Because they are still private citizens, investigators are not permitted by law to wiretap phones without consent, trespass on private property, tamper with mail, make an arrest, or impersonate law enforcement.
