Barrie Investigations

A Barrie Private Investigator is a civilian in the employ of a Barrie Ontario private investigations company hired to investigate “subjects” by a client. In Barrie, the customer of a PI agency is known as the "client." The “subject” is usually a person or persons but can also be a Barrie business. The customer can be an individual, corporation, and even an Ontario government agency.


What Does a Barrie Private Investigator Investigate?

The Barrie Private Investigator can investigate a wide variety of things; however, Private Investigators in Barrie Ontario mostly investigate insurance fraud for insurance companies.

  • However, with the rise of digital technology in the modern age, more Barrie PI agencies are specializing completely on cyber investigations.

Barrie Private Investigators typically take on investigative cases that do not fall under the purview of an ON government agency, such as civil matters while ON government agencies will cover serious criminal cases. Because a Private Investigator is just a normal Barrie citizen, they do not have any special investigative privileges. A Private Investigator in Barrie ON has the same power/ authority of any Barrie citizen with the exception that a Barrie PI is allowed to offer investigative services to customers (clients) and has the expertise in investigations. The cost of a Barrie Private Investigator depends on the type of investigative service offered and the level of skill of the Investigator.

Barrie PI Clients

The most common clients for Private Investigators in Barrie are insurance companies, law firms, private corporations, and ordinary Barrie citizens. Investigations conducted for these clients will frequently involve potential fraud. Other clients in Barrie will want to obtain more detailed information in order to adjudicate or manage an insurance claim. Many of these cases are mitigated through the hiring of a Barrie Private Investigator. They can include both surveillance and non-surveillance efforts.

Barrie investigations often obtain more information faster than legal processes such as discovery (the pretrial disclosure of relevant evidence), thus providing the Investigator’s clients more information for decision-making.

Barrie Background Research: Using the Internet as an Investigative Tool

Often the largest part of a Barrie background check, the Investigator will utilize the internet/ Google as an investigative tool to research the subject's personal history:

Obviously, searching social media platforms will be an important part of this Barrie background check process. 

However, a lot of information can be found on a resident outside of social media. There could be many mentions of the person on various websites. Many people have a rudimentary grasp on searching the internet via Google. An average person could find a few pieces of information when searching on the internet. However, a skilled Barrie Cyber Investigator will be able to find all relevant information and be able to accurately verify and document it properly. This is why, even with a simple background check task, an experienced and skilled Barrie Cyber Investigator should always be utilized.
