In order to hire a Private Investigator you need to ensure they are representing or attached to a Licensed Private Investigation Agency and not just have a Private Investigator licence. Any reputable Private investigator will have the knowledge to carry out many types of investigative undertakings. Surveillance is one of the most requested services in our industry many Private Investigation Agencies offer this service , but only a handful really have the experience and know-how to execute properly and effectively. A reputable Private Investigator will always have a solid investigative work history. Being Licensed is one thing, but knowing how to attend to most investigation is a craft and can have huge legal recourse if not handled accordingly. Make sure who ever you hire can back up their resume. Just because someone is a licensed investigator does not mean they know how to investigate. 

NOTE: A google review is a great indicator, but make sure you always look a little deeper and at times read between the lines on some of these.

As you probably have noticed, there are a lot of Private Investigation Agencies within Toronto and throughout the GTA and Province of Ontario. When it comes to cost, it varies greatly.

The main question is “what are you paying for?” Is it Surveillance Services, Corporate Fraud Investigation, locating a person or persons, undercover operations? Whatever the service request, it is imperative that you make sure you hire a reputable agency and not just the cheapest entity out there. In this industry, when you pay a cheap fee for anything it is usually because corners have been cut or that they are inexperienced and not as qualified as they put themselves out to be.

For example, conducting a Fraud Investigation is not as simple as some may think. It is important to note that there are a handful of Private Investigation Agencies offering this type of service that do not possess the necessary skill set, qualifications or experience to do so. The same plays out for Surveillance Services, simply following someone does not make you a qualified or skilled Surveillance Investigator. There is a lot more that goes in to a Surveillance Investigation.

Do your homework on who you are thinking about hiring. Ask them their backgrounds, meet with them at one of their offices, ask to see their license to get a good feel of their professionalism and go from there.
