What Does a Peterborough Private Investigator Investigate?

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

Peterborough 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 Peterborough citizen, they do not have any special investigative privileges. A Private Investigator in Peterborough ON has the same power/ authority of any Peterborough citizen with the exception that a Peterborough PI is allowed to offer investigative services to customers (clients) and has the expertise in investigations. The cost of a Peterborough Private Investigator depends on the type of investigative service offered and the level of skill of the Investigator.

Peterborough PI Clients

The most common clients for Private Investigators in Peterborough are insurance companies, law firms, private corporations, and ordinary Peterborough citizens. Investigations conducted for these clients will frequently involve potential fraud. Other clients in Peterborough 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 Peterborough Private Investigator. They can include both surveillance and non-surveillance efforts.

Peterborough 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.

Peterborough Background Research: Using the Internet as an Investigative Tool

Often the largest part of a Peterborough 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 Peterborough 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 Peterborough 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 Peterborough Cyber Investigator should always be utilized.
