A detective agency, often referred to as a private investigator, offers private individuals and companies with an extensive range of investigation services. In many instances, people don’t realise how many services these companies do offer and how they can help you find the truth in a situation. Based on your unique circumstances, you may find that hiring one of these detective agencies can provide you with the answers you need in order to proceed moving forward.
The first thing that all detective agencies will offer is surveillance. If you are thinking of getting divorced and you have a feeling that your spouse is cheating on you, then one of these agencies will be able to gather evidence to put your mind at ease. They will follow your spouse, document their findings and take photographs to support their evidence. This is something that you can use to give you complete peace of mind.
In the event you believe one of your employees are stealing from you, the agency can conduct a thorough investigation to identify if the allegations are true so you know what steps to take in the long run and where you need to put security measures in place to reduce the risk of this happening to you again in the future.
A good detective agency will help you with tracing services. Whether you have a client which has disappeared owing your company a large sum of money or you have someone who ran off with your car and never transferred it to your name, they will conduct a thorough trace of the person. The trace includes everything from their credit report to their last job to find them for you, so you can take the necessary steps needed.
For those who have met that special someone and want to get married, but are still married and cannot find your spouse, the detective agency will trace them for you so you can present them with the necessary divorce papers. This will give you the ability to marry the person of your dreams and get on with your life.
For companies, detective agencies also provide a wealth of services the main being the background checks that they can carry out for you on potential new employees. It is always worthwhile to carry out essential checks on applicants you are thinking of hiring. This reduces the risk of hiring someone who is known for crimes, especially financial crimes. Knowing the person doesn’t have a police record or that they have a relatively good credit report can give you much needed confidence when offering them the position in your company.
Many of the private investigator companies will provide you with fraud investigation services. Fraud is very serious can completely break a company in more ways than one. An employee carrying out fraud can not only cost the company financially, but it can give them a bad reputation with suppliers and/or customers, which can have a very negative effect on your company’s growth in the long run. These investigators will confirm any allegations, find the evidence you need and provide you with a complete report detailing the fraud, so you can take it to the next level.
