When police reports are deficient, evidence is lacking, proper attention has not been afforded and a more in-depth investigation is needed to bring justice, a skilled Private Investigator is essential. Licensed Private Detectives or P.I are highly trained and have the resources to a wide variety of tools that might not otherwise be available. These tools include networks of investigators, surveillance, records checks, data bases, specialized equipment and other sources that assist in gaining more evidence and information to assure the proper resolution to the matter is obtained.
A skilled P.I. adheres to laws and regulations surrounding investigations to ensure that information is obtained in a legal manner. A licensed Private detective, properly preserves and secures evidence so that it will be admissible in court. Private Investigators can find useful evidence that law enforcement might overlooked due to time constraint, lack of personnel, training/experience or jurisdictional limitations.
A civil investigation is an inquiry to collect data and supporting materials for legal matters (e.g. lawsuit, tort, or disputes). Private Detectives provide expertise in the gathering of information and evidence germane to the case by making use of their extensive databases, investigative skills, and connections to obtain access to the most valuable material and information.
A civil investigation may include interviewing witnesses, location witnesses, taking photographs, gaining access to various records, and conducting surveillance. The goal is to gather as much information as possible for the attorney or individual to sift through to determine what material will present the strongest case for litigation.
