Whitby Investigations

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


What Does a Whitby Private Investigator Investigate?

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

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

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

Whitby PI Clients

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

Whitby 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.

Whitby Background Research: Using the Internet as an Investigative Tool

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