07 Apr Hiring Private Investigators
Why Might I Need to Hire Private Investigators ?
Whether we like to admit it or not, the subject of hiring private investigator is not something we tend to talk about with our friends, family or work colleagues. However, that’s not really reflected in the number of people in Australia that are using private investigators services. We’ve all seen movies and stories about professional gumshoes wearing Fedora hats and trench coats, but the reality is very different. Professional private investigators look like everyone else and discretion is very much the order of the day in everything they do. It has to be!
At the Investigative Collective, we offer these services to clients through our businesses across Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane and throughout Australia, and in this article we take a look at the variety of reasons why a growing number of everyday people are using a professional private investigators . By reading to the end you’ll know whether you might some day require their services yourself. So, let’s not waste any more time and dive in!
A Range of useful Services
The important thing to remember from the outset is that by considering a private investigator, you’re not being crazy or irrational. Private investigators are a necessary part of life in current times. People all across Australia are using these kinds of services for a range of reasons. Let’s have a look at the most common ones.
Finding a Missing Person
The first reason is for when someone goes missing, which happens more often than you might think. Around 38,000 people go missing each year in Australia, which equates to over 100 every single day! Of course many of these become cases for the authorities, but they have limits on what they will do. Often private investigators work in conjunction with the police to help a family find a missing loved one. Investigators can put in the leg work with the help of the information that the police can access but don’t have the manpower to do. Licensed investigators can help immensely by getting out there and visiting sites, asking questions, and getting to the bottom of the situation.
Then there are those occasions when people want to find their birth mother, or birth father, or children you may have given up which again is quite a common occurrence. A private investigator can help make your search a successful one. Head to our Integral Investigations site and look at some of the videos which include our appearance on This Time Next Year with Karl Stefanovic on Channel 9. Locating biological family is one of our specialties, and we love doing it.
Checking On Unfaithful Partners
The next reason we look at is investigating individuals who their partners suspect are being unfaithful to them. Infidelity can happen to anyone and suspicion can be extremely damaging to relationships – even if nothing is actually happening. A reputable private detective agency can confirm or deny these suspicions by taking video and pictures – allowing people to get on with their lives. This of course can lead into the dissolution of the relationship and anybody owning a house in Sydney nowadays has a lot of money tied up in those relationships. So things invariably end up in the Family Court where once again private investigators might be required to gather information that could help with their case in the court.
Running Background Checks
Trust is an important thing in life and in business and background checks are a way to help employers and individuals gain insight into potential business partners or employees. This sort of investigation certainly keeps us busy and we receive work from all over the world verifying and checking detail. Catfishing is bigger now then ever too, and a professional investigator can help people avoid being duped by other less-than-honest individuals.
Sweeping for Bugs
Anyone can task a private detective to investigate anyone else and it’s nice to know whether or not someone is investigating you. Employing cutting-edge technology, investigators can sweep for bugs, camera and recorders in any given property or home. Hardware that can be easily missed by an untrained eye, can be identified and highlighted quickly and easily by a pro.
Whether You Hire One is Your Prerogative
Of course, whether you decide that private investigators are the answer for your particular problem is your prerogative. What shouldn’t be overlooked though, is that if you try and get the answers yourself without an in-depth knowledge of the legality of any action you take, you can end up causing major trouble that you didn’t anticipate. That’s why we’d always recommend talking to a professional and let them deal with the issue, as they’ll be able to look at your problem objectively and without emotion – which is better for everyone concerned.
