It has been my pleasure to work with Martin Investigative Services over the past 30 plus years on many investigations as well as other security related matters. When I need answers and I need them fast I know that a simple call will get me answers that are succinct, current and coming from a supremely knowledgeable source.
When individuals refer to a private detective, what they usually mean is a private investigator.
Here’s the difference:
- Detective is a term typically used to refer to police work, popularized by old Hollywood films and serial novels.
- Investigator is the term more commonly used in the private sector.
It follows that a detective agency, is actually a investigative agency.
