Private investigators can perform a wide range of services; some may not have even occurred to you. If you initially contact a PI for one issue, you may find it leads to the need for another search or surveillance mission, so make sure you choose a full-service private investigation firm. Here are just a few of the top services private investigators in Tampa provide:

  • Child custody
  • Surveillance
  • Business and dating background checks
  • Identity theft
  • Corporate investigations
  • Personal injury investigation
  • Welfare investigation
  • Insurance scam
  • Wiretap sweeps
  • Personal protection/Bodyguard
  • Infidelity investigation
  • Family law investigations
  • Internal theft investigation
  • Fraud investigation
  • Criminal investigation
  • Vehicle tracking
  • And more

Three of the most requested services in Tampa are infidelity investigations, background checks, and corporate investigations.

Infidelity investigations

When you need to hire a PI to find out once and for all whether or not your spouse is cheating, it’s helpful to come to the initial meeting at the investigative firm armed with as much information as possible. If you can give the private investigator a typical daily schedule or details about what restaurants and bars they frequent, this will save everyone time, and save you money. Since video surveillance is almost always necessary during an infidelity investigation, the process goes that much faster if the PI already knows where to look for your cheating spouse. The evidence a PI gathers will not only tell you if your suspicions were correct, but it can also benefit you during divorce proceedings.

Background Checks

When you hear the phrase background check, you probably assume it relates to applying for a job, but private investigators perform the checks for a number of reasons. Some of the most common types of background investigations requested are:

  • Dating background check
  • Pre-marital background check
  • Pre-employment background check
  • Character reference check
  • Criminal history report
  • Identity verification
  • Nanny or babysitter background check

Private investigation firms can delve deeper into a person’s background than an online site that charges a steep fee. Make sure the PI you hire does more than just a general computer search; they should be using multiple sources of information to get the data you desire.

Corporate Investigations

A large corporation requires a lot of moving pieces to keep business running smoothly. Many executives choose to be proactive when it comes to minimizing their risk of employee misconduct, fraud, or internal theft. A full-service PI firm can evaluate where your potential risks exist. If necessary, electronic forensics and forensic accounting can be useful tools in uncovering unethical or criminal behavior within your company.

As you would before enlisting help from anyone, be it a plumber or surgeon, it is important that you do your own due diligence before hiring a private investigator.
