Because a Private Investigator is just a normal Pickering citizen, they do not have any special investigative privileges.

Pickering Background Research: Using the Internet as an Investigative Tool

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