Investigating Potential Private Investigators: Which Can You Trust?

You are worried someone might be listening into your phone conversations. You are worried your employees are stealing from you. You think your spouse may be having an affair. These are all situations when you might turn to a private investigator to gather the evidence you need, or to receive peace of mind.

These are also types of situations that might leave you feeling distressed and anxious, which could cause you to make hiring decisions hastily. At Martin Investigative Services, we hope that you will choose our qualified and experienced team.

Even if you do not enlist our services, it is important to us that you understand how to identify a PI agency that will be able to provide you with dependable investigative solutions. When considering different firms, or individual private investigators, take the following factors into consideration.

Our team of private investigators are former Federal agents with the FBI, DEA, IRS, or Secret Service. We can help you throughout the continental USA. Call our PI today. We can help!

Investigating Potential Private Investigators

Do They Have Relevant Experience?

Experience speaks volumes. Very rarely does an individual start their career as a successful private investigator. Leading investigators are often professionals who have transitioned from other related fields. They might have previous experience working in law enforcement or with the military.

For example, all of the agents working at Martin Investigative Services are former supervisory Federal agents, who used to work with the IRS, DEA, FBI, and the Secret Service.

In addition to previous related careers, it is important to also take into consideration previous cases successfully completed by an investigator. While they will not be able to disclose specifics regarding past cases, they should be able to explain techniques that they often utilize, the length of time they have been investigating, and any awards or recognitions they have received.

Can They Provide Court Admissible Evidence?

Individuals and enterprises typically hire private investigators in order to gather evidence that can be used in court cases. Even the most compelling evidence may not be admissible in a court of law if the appropriate techniques were not used to collect the information.

If you are planning to pursue legal recourse against someone by hiring private investigation services, be sure that you work with professionals who are familiar with federal laws, as well as the laws in your area. Ask prospective investigators to describe their experience with collecting and presenting court-admissible evidence.

Are They Capable of Using the Latest Technologies?

Technology has completely transformed private investigative services. People are becoming increasingly dependent upon their personal computers and mobile devices. Thieves are now stealing electronic resources instead of physical property, and espionage is easier than ever with the help of minuscule hidden cameras and listening devices.

Because of these trends, it is crucial that the investigators you hire are familiar not only with hidden surveillance technologies, but also the investigative devices and software that can be used to find these tools.

Martin Investigative Services specializes in performing bug sweeps, uncovering hidden microphones, recorders, and tapped phone lines. Our investigators are able to expose these secretive devices by hunting them down visually, but also by using our own innovative technology.

Do They Accept Just Any Case?

To be honest, we did and that’s how we were able to gain extensive experience in a variety of investigative areas. However, if a PI agency is eager to accept your case without even hearing the details, this is not a sign that should evoke confidence. Your case may require skills, resources, or technology that the agency cannot provide, and this deficiency may not be revealed until it is too late.

At Martin Investigative Services, we actually turn down more cases each year than many other agencies complete. This is because we only take on clients who we know that we can help. If we agree to help you with your case, you can rest assured that we will deliver the services and results that are promised.
