to bring crucial context to your personal life

Hiring a private investigator for your personal crisis is the first step towards getting the critical context you need to make complex decisions. For many Americans, their conception of a private investigator includes things like unsettling surveillance, documenting a cheating spouse’s movements, and film noir. The reality is that a private investigator carries a flexible skillset that can be applied to multiple areas of your personal life, depending on the private investigator’s practice and specialty.

Background Checks

An individual’s experience with background checks is typically as the subject. When you apply and interview for a new job, it’s good business practice for the employer to run at least a cursory background check on you as an applicant to screen for any obvious red flags that would preclude you from employment. However, the benefits of a background check can extend far beyond the workplace.

Why hire a private investigator to conduct a background check for your personal investigation needs? Most people have at least seen advertisements for websites that talk a big game when it comes to getting your private

information on an individual. They have fishy headlines like “Find out who’s calling you!” They boast that you can find the information you’re looking for if you’re willing to pay for it. Consumers who have used these services are hard-pressed to find that the information they paid for may not only be inaccurate, but they may not even pertain to the subject they were researching. This is due in part to the quality of data entry and human error. It’s also due in part to the fact that many private citizens do not know how to accurately read and place items on a background check in context.

When it comes to your private life, you can never be too careful about who you invite into it, and when it comes to private investigations, you don’t know what you don’t know. Say that you want to hire an independent contractor to work in your home to do home improvements or a caregiver to watch your children. Many individuals would exercise their due-diligence by running a background check on an individual to protect themselves from foreseeable complications.

To begin with, private investigators are not searching the same databases as private citizens. Private investigators by virtue of their license through the state in question have access to verified databases similar to that of law enforcement. Private investigators comb these verified databases and look at how individual factors on a subject’s background check effect one another for full context. Private investigators can view information on a subject’s background check such as criminal history, job history, address history, and litigation history in order to assess a subject’s level of risk in context of the private investigation.

Child Custody Investigations

At Lauth Investigations International, private investigations means putting valuable intelligence in our clients’ hands, and there is perhaps no intelligence more valuable than intelligence that involves our children. Situations such as divorce proceedings and coparenting can be tumultuous by nature, and parents require unobscured facts to make decisions for their child.

The autonomy, discretion, and tools of a private investigator make them the ideal professional to investigate child custody matters for clients. For example, if a parent has reason to believe that the coparent is mistreating or abusing their children, or is allowing their children to be around a dangerous person, a private investigator can document the situation to confirm or negate these suspicions. A private investigator is highly adept in blending in to the background and conducting covert surveillance in child custody investigations. Lauth investigators commonly conduct this type of surveillance during scheduled visits with coparents, and other scenarios in which the parent is supervising the child. At the conclusion of the child custody investigation, we provide detailed reports, such as background checks, photographs/video, and witness testimony, as well as providing our clients with expert recommendations.

Crimes Against Persons

When someone is the victim of a crime, they typically call the police and file a report so law enforcement can investigate and get justice. For a myriad of reasons, sometimes victims of these crimes never see justice. The crime might not be violent in nature, and therefore is not a high priority for police. Using their own professional discretion, law enforcement may not see the cause or the need to investigate the victim’s claim. This leaves victims of personal crimes twisting in the wind, and that’s where a private investigator comes in.

When it comes to crimes like harassment, stalking, violence, extortion, and bribery, a private investigator can offer crucial context that law enforcement cannot. Because a private investigator is not directly associated with any law enforcement entity, they do not have jurisdictional restrictions that prevent them from pursuing a case out of state or any other forms of bureaucratic red tape. Because they have no powers of arrest, a private investigator may be able to get information from a subject or witness to the crime that they were uncomfortable giving to law enforcement. Private investigators use surveillance, background checks, GPS-tracking (if applicable), and other forms of fact=finding to arm our clients with the intelligence they need to finally get justice.

 

Unsolved Homicides

When a homicide remains unsolved or goes cold, it leaves families without any answers in the violent death of their loved one. Law enforcement is not always able to get the answers necessary to give a victim’s family closure. Witnesses or relevant subjects in the homicide case can be uncooperative with law enforcement, move away, or pass away before fact-finding can take place. Evidence can be thin, degraded, or disappear entirely. Perhaps the relevant subjects in the case disappear from the jurisdiction entirely. These are all things that can cause a stall in case progression and lead to the case going cold. Sometimes it can be as simple as the police department not having the proper resources to investigate. If the homicide occurs in a sleepy suburb, law enforcement might not even be equipped to handle a homicide investigation as well as others.

All of these reasons are examples of why a victim’s family might also hire a private investigator to conduct an unsolved homicide investigation in tandem with law enforcement. This ensures that all leads are explored and there is no kind of bias that would stall case progression. A private investigator is not bound by any jurisdictional restrictions. If an unsolved homicide investigation takes them out of state, they are independent of any chain of command that would prevent them from doing so. Because of their independence, a private investigator is also not subjected to any departmental bias that might be present in the jurisdiction.

Art & Jewelry Theft

Theft of personal property such as art, jewelry, electronics, tools, and other related items typically fall near the bottom of a law enforcement officer’s list. Violent crimes are prioritized first and something like a stolen lawnmower will fall so low in triage that by the time police are able to give the case the attention it needs, all evidence, witnesses, and leads will have likely dried up.

A private investigator can conduct an investigation into the personal property theft in tandem with law enforcement. This ensures that there is no time lost in recovering the stolen property. Private investigators can conduct background checks on subjects and potential suspects. In pursuit of due-diligence, they can canvass pawn shops, second-hand stores, and other re-sale establishments in order to find the property. Once the property is found, a private investigator can conduct surveillance that documents the item being in the subject’s possession. If the private investigator is unable to facilitate the return of the property, they can alert law enforcement of their findings and assist them in recovery.
