What is a private investigator?
Private investigators, also known as private detectives or PIs, are hired professionals used for multiple purposes. Although PIs are not police officers, many have a criminal justice background. Many have developed their expertise on the job. PIs will work for private individuals or companies. Attorneys may hire detectives to build information for a case. A private detective provides investigative services, surveillance and background checks. Investigators use their skills to gather information on behalf of individuals, law firms and companies. In Pennsylvania, you are also required to be licensed as a PI to offer guard or other physical security services .
Things that you should ask your PI:
Does the private investigator have a physical office that you can visit?
Will they provide a written contract or engagement letter?
Are they listed as being licensed as a Private Investigator on the website of the County where the office resides?
Can they provide a copy of their Workers Comp insurance certificate for your review?
Will they provide a copy of their Liability insurance Certificate?
Can you see their Private Investigators License that is required to be posted in their wall?
Is the vehicle that they drive registered and insured in the corporate name?
