What's Private Detective ?


 

Private investigators may concentrate their careers on finding mission persons, performing background checks, performing investigative services, or conducting marital investigations.

 

Private investigators may work alongside law enforcement officials during criminal investigations, or they may work as skip tracers alongside bail bondsmen or bounty hunters. They may also specialize in uncovering insurance fraud or finding missing children.

Finally, private investigators may work in a more general capacity, providing a wide array of investigative services to clients.

 

Regardless of the area or industry in which they work, private investigators follow a strict set of standards, which are generally dictated by state law.

 

Many private investigators are members of state professional investigator associations, which also require them to work under a set of bylaws or a code of ethics.
