Choosing a Private Investigator
Choosing the right private investigator is very essential
when it comes to solving cases. Most people will need to
first analyze their particular situation and find an investigator
who may specialize in that area. In other words, it wouldn't
be a good idea to hire an investigator who works with cheating
spouses to investigate a crime. Here are some methods for
choosing a really good investigator for your needs:
Check Their Credentials
After narrowing down your options for
private investigators who specialize in your particular
situation, it is now
time to check their credentials. Some of the best investigators
will hold a degree in Criminal Justice or Homeland Security.
There are also other licensing organizations for private
investigators for each state. These organizations will
often have their own list of investigators listed in their
directory. Attorneys also may have great recommendations
for private investigators, especially if they have worked
with them in the past on certain cases. Recommendations
from friends is also very helpful. Make sure to check the
licensing requirements for each state or the state you
live in to make sure your investigator is legit. Some investigators
will hire outside help to assist them with cases who are
not qualified or have experience in the law enforcement
field. Make sure to get a clear list of who the private
investigator uses in his case as employees or partners.
Make sure to see if the required license by the state is
placed in the investigators office or place of business.
If you cannot see it right away, ask for it.
Check For Complaints and Reviews
There are a lack of private investigators, so if there
is one who is licensed, there may be reviews of their services
online. There are a ton of review forums that discuss certain
business professionals. Make sure to check for any complaints
that may have been filed (this can be done by checking
with the Better Business Bureau) or the police department.
You can also ask the state licensing board for any complaints
against the investigator. Look into how many years the
person has been doing private investigating. What other
qualifications and experience do they have in the law enforcement
field? Make sure to check references.
Does Your Private Investigator Have a Passion For What
Choosing the right private investigator has a lot to do
with passion. Some people were born to help others. Their
passion can be determined when having a personal consultation
with the private investigator. Do they have a personal
story that relates to yours? This will show that the investigator
has empathy for your situation and has dedicated their
life to solving a particular problem.
