The Private Investigator Infographic
THE BREAKDOWN OF WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN HIRING A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR
As the infographic states, there are five primary topics one must research before hiring a private investigator. The top 5 things to look for in a private investigator include:
Checking the private investigator’s credentials: Check if the owner and employees have an extensive history in either law enforcement, FBI, former NYPD, or seasoned investigators. Each case requires a different individual to handle the task at hand.
Are they active license in your state, bond, and/or has insurance? All owners must have an active license and have a bond in NY. While optional, being insured, a PI takes the extra steps.
Reviews, referrals, and ratings: Check Google, their referrals and overall online ratings. Check both the good and bad reviews. All are telling.
Make sure they have an office: This helps differentiate those working from their home vs. in an actual office. This allows you to find them in should any problems arise.
