Report on Findings
What is a private investigator?
Private investigators (also known as private detectives and private eyes) are licensed professionals who discreetly collect evidence and perform research to discover information for their clients. Private investigators can work for private citizens, businesses, law enforcement, and attorneys and can be useful for many cases such as spousal infidelity, child custody, theft, missing persons, fraud, serving subpoenas, and much more.
What do private investigators do?
Private investigators perform a wide variety of services including searches, surveillance, serving subpoenas, taking statements, testifying in court, and more. Our clients often hire our private investigators to investigate cheating spouses, corporate or insurance fraud, child abuse, child custody, worker's compensation claims, and so much more.
What is the difference between surveillance and investigation?
Surveillance includes following, observing, and collecting information about a person, business, or place without the subject knowing. Investigations can include surveillance and can also include interacting undercover with the subject to gain more information. The goal of surveillance is to discreetly collect evidence, whereas the goal of an investigation may be to obtain confessions of guilt or catch the subject in wrongdoing.
Are private investigators licensed?
Yes, all private investigators in the State of Washington must obtain a license to operate within the state.
What is a polygraph test?
A polygraph test (also known as a lie detector test) is a test that measures physiological stress indicators in response to answering questions. Polygraph tests are used by private citizens, law enforcement, and employers to get a general idea if someone may be truthful or deceptive when answering a pre-set series of questions. Polygraph tests have multitude of uses including but not limited to interrogations, screening new employees, spousal infidelity, and divorce.
How does a polygraph work?
A polygraph works by recording stress indicators such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity while the subject answers a series of questions. For most test subjects, physiological reactions while answering either point to deceptive or non-deceptive answers.
