We have dedicated ourselves to neutralizing the concerns of our clients for the past twenty one years. Each investigative assignment undertaken by us contains a series of challenges and a continuing education that contributes to our knowledge base. Over these years we have and continue to work with some of the finest lawyers in America all of whom have enhanced our ability to provide legal investigative services with our private investigators that culminate in successful outcomes.
Clients seek to retain us when they find themselves in a precarious situation or when they are in a troubled state of mind because they are uninformed. We listen very carefully to the concerns of our clients and then we determine if we want to accept their case. Many people attempt to utilize the services of Private Investigators to gather information they have no legal right to have and should we suspect something is amiss we will refuse their request for our services. Unlike PI’s portrayed in the movies and on TV we don’t sit in dimly lit smoked filled offices. We have a light and bright atmosphere with a great view of the city and we’re not desperately waiting for our next assignment with no regard for what kind of case it is
Our Blog was created to enlighten the public as to the reality of what it is like to be a Private Investigator and a Personal Protection Specialist also referred to as a Bodyguard.
The Real World of a Private Investigator
We are inviting you into the real world of a private investigator’s life on any given day so you can become familiar with the reality of what it is like to conduct private investigations. Folks ask us all the time what it’s like to be a PI. We hope this blog illustrates that for you. We welcome your comments, suggestions and questions.
We receive investigative requests from all over the world. There are times when we nearly fall off our chairs when we’re asked to perform an investigative task that someone saw on a CSI show. TV’s CSI is a very successful and entertaining show and we’re not out to disparage or discourage your viewing of the show. Due to the requests we receive from time to time we thought you should be given some education about what is real and what is fiction. For example; not all of the technologies portrayed on CSI are real they are at times fictitious and they simply do not exist in the real world of Crime Scene Investigations. Some of the other fiction portrayed on CSI is; CSI personnel do not carry weapons they carry the forensic tools of their trade. CSI personnel do not interview suspects, police officers and detectives conduct interviews or interrogations of suspects. CSI personnel collect forensic evidence that they examine under specific guidelines established by the Forensic Science Community and State and Federal Prosecutors. Our staff wishes we could solve our cases within the 35 minutes CSI solve theirs (we subtracted commercial time).
Another show we wish we could duplicate is “Criminal Minds.” Yes there is an FBI Division that studies criminal behavior with several Private Investigators. They have become an essential group of experts who have contributed significantly to solving crimes. For those of you who are interested, here is a excerpt from the FBI website regarding profilers;
“17. I want to be an FBI “Profiler” – where do I begin the application process?
You first need to realize the FBI does not have a job called “Profiler.” The tasks commonly associated with “profiling” are performed by Supervisory Special Agents assigned to the National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime (NCAVC) at Quantico, Virginia. Despite popular depictions, these FBI Special Agents don’t get “vibes” or experience “psychic flashes” while walking around fresh crime scenes. It is an exciting world of investigation and research — a world of inductive and deductive reasoning; crime-solving experience; and knowledge of criminal behavior, facts, and statistical probabilities.”
What we wouldn’t give to have a “Garcia” from Criminal Minds working for us. She types faster than a speeding bullet and she’s able to find out everything about anyone in less than a minute including the size of their socks LOL. Reality Check time, Garcia is a fictional character who is very entertaining but also a great private investigator. Most of the information she’s asked to find on her computers does not exist in reality. If it did exist we would be nearly a crime free country and we would be living under a totalitarian government and wouldn’t have a strong need for private investigators. Wikipedia describes Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) as a political system where the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible.
