When hiring investigators, PSA provides the latest training and equipment available for investigators to produce the results you are after. PSA belongs to several associations and organizations providing up-to-date training for our agency. As you read the following information you will better understand what to look for when hiring investigators.
When hiring investigators you want to make sure the agency or person is licensed in the state you will need services. Licensing varies from state to state, so be sure to ask the investigator to provide documentation to substantiate licensing to do business in the state they claim to conduct business.
Once you find a private investigator make sure you feel comfortable confiding in the investigator the personal details of your situation. In many cases, clients withhold information important to their case because they do not feel 100% comfortable with the investigator. You are wasting your time and money if this happens. A trained investigator will discuss all aspects of the case with you explaining the process and answering all your questions and concerns. When hiring investigators they should provide all information pertaining to hourly, daily and weekly rates to investigate your case. He should also explain the rates for background searches, mileage and travel if needed.
Once the initial face to face meeting has occurred, the investigator should meet with the client in person or over the phone weekly or more frequently if needed to discuss the progress in their case. Once the investigation concludes the investigator should meet the client with all the information gathered during the investigation.
