I just thought I would share my views, after reading an article today, in a national news paper about Private Investigators.
The Role of a Private Investigator
In recent months, the name of private investigators has been dragged through the mud. Almost daily the media seems to come up with another tale of a corrupt investigator, or an unethical use of the tools of the industry: an industry that was really created to help. Whilst hacking cases and private detectives/investigators writing books on their clients shows the troubled side of the industry, they do not represent the reality of an investigator's role. What they do represent is the best news story.
When real private Investigators read stories of books being released detailing the inner most details of a clients case, or of their supposed colleagues using their skills to hack the mobile phone of a missing teenage girl, their only reaction is to recoil with horror. These practices are an abuse of the trade, a black mark on a good name.In reality, the main role of a private investigator is to help. To provide the skills and knowledge to aid in cases that may seem unsolvable. To complete investigations ethically and to the best of their ability and to assist their clients in whatever they require.
