Private Criminal Investigation

What is a Criminal Investigation?

Criminal investigations are investigations that search, collect, and gather evidence for a case or specific purpose. A criminal investigator looks for clues and evidence to determine whether a crime has taken place. If a crime has been committed, criminal investigators may look into the background of the accused and may try to uncover who committed the crime. Criminal investigators undertake several investigation techniques in order to find the necessary evidence for a case. Police agencies and law enforcement are committed to criminal investigations of every kind, but a growing number of individuals are choosing to launch their own criminal investigations with the help of professional investigators.

When Do I Need a Criminal Investigator?

  • If law enforcement investigations produce little or no results
  • When you need evidence gathered for criminal defense
  • To collect evidence for a criminal case
  • To find and interview other witnesses to a crime
  • To gather impartial facts about a crime
  • If you need surveillance or records searches to collect evidence

What is a Crime?

A crime is an intentional action against the rules of law for a community. In most communities, sexual assault, physical assault, murder, theft, property damage and vandalism are all crimes. If a crime is committed, investigators will work to determine what happened and who is responsible. All collected evidence is presented to the police or to courts in criminal defense investigations. Once an alleged perpetrator is found, he or she may be brought to court and accused.

Why Should I Use a Criminal Investigator?

  • Criminal investigators operate within the law to find evidence
  • Criminal defense investigators can gather evidence of wrongful conviction or accusation
  • Law enforcement investigators are often busy with other tasks
  • Criminal investigation divisions can be too short on resources to conduct a proper investigation
  • Exclusively dedicated criminal investigators are more persistent than law enforcment so they can provide better results
  • Criminal investigators are not limited by jurisdiction

What Kinds of Criminal Investigations Exist?

  • Fraud Investigations
  • Crime Scene Investigations
  • Sexual Crimes Investigations
  • Theft Investigations
  • Kidnapping Investigations
  • Assault Investigations
  • Criminal Defense Investigations
  • Witness Interviews
  • Interrogation
  • Crime Scene Photography

Are Criminal Investigators Reliable?

Criminal investigators are highly trained and have the resources to a wide variety of tools that might not otherwise be available. These tools can include networks of investigators, surveillance, records checks, and other sources that can help them solve crimes. An investigator’s experience allows them to know how to find the evidence that you are looking for and the best practices to perform their investigations effectively. Criminal investigators also adhere to laws and regulations surrounding investigations to ensure that your information is obtained in a legal manner. Criminal investigators can find useful evidence that others might overlook. Criminal investigators also keep evidence preserved so that it is admissible in court. Since criminal investigators take cues from you, they will typically continue their investigative efforts until you’re satisfied with the quantity and quality of evidence.

Private Civil Investigation

About Civil Investigations

Evidence is key to a successful civil trial. To make sure they stand the best chance, lawyers or civilians will enlist the help of a private investigator to get all of the information and evidence they can. That, in a nutshell, is the basis of a civil investigation. It’s important to remember that a civil trial is different from a criminal trial. In many instances, a civil case involves two individual citizens who have a dispute related to their rights as citizens. As an example, if a domestic accident occurs and one person files a case against another for damages, this case will most probably be tried in a civil court. When you don’t have a lawyer arguing your case, as is common in civil trials, evidence can make all the difference.

What do our civil investigations look like?

Analysis will almost always be the first step in our civil investigation. When you solicit us for an investigation, you will first meet with one of our private investigators to discuss the investigation’s needs. These will include the investigation’s allotted budget, as well as how the investigation will proceed. After that, we’ll get to work, implementing a number of investigative techniques to uncover the information you need. We’ll change our methods depending on your case. These may include medical or forensic investigations, surveillance, background checks, and witness examinations. Once we uncover information, we will meet with you again to discuss those findings. If required, our investigators can make an official report or serve as an expert witness in a civil trial.
