Private Investigators and police can and will work together. A common concern we hear especially in missing person cases, is “Will the police be mad if I hire you?” The answer is a resounding “No”. Detectives we’ve worked with have been appreciative of the extra set of eyes, experience and resources.
Having a private investigator and police sharing information may expedite the process as well. When it comes to police investigations, there is typically a chain of command and paperwork involved. There are times when there is not yet sufficient evidence for the police to move forward or obtain certain information. Sometimes they must wait for a court order prior to obtaining records, losing valuable time. When you hire a private investigator, once you have signed the contact, the work can begin immediately.
As noted in this article, there are times (typically missing persons cases) the police must wait and see what happens before moving forward with anything. While private investigators are bound by law, there are techniques and resources we can use that police are unable to. In many cases, witnesses are more willing to speak with a private investigator than the police.
