Being a private investigator impacts every part of a life time-wise, eating into weekends and nights, as well as putting paid to regular holidays, and in the field of private investigations 9-5 days are definitely an impossibility in most cases.
Consider the time it takes for a private investigator on an undercover investigation to sit in a car or any other position for hours on end. Then figure in the fact that the investigator still needs time doing additional research on the case, which adds even more pressure on an investigator working on a time-sensitive case.
There’s no doubt that in order for a professional PI to deliver untainted evidence, he has to adhere to a strict code of conduct that governs his profession, which is best for you, because you get your money’s worth out of the investigation when you have good evidence
Owner of King Investigators, Jacques Botha and his team, are licensed private investigators who are also registered with the PSIRA, which is the body that regulates the security industry in order to protect clients and investigators alike.
Despite the fact that King Investigators are the number one cheating spouse detectives in South Africa, they are also a full-service investigations firm, able to tackle many different kinds of cases, whether for individuals or businesses.
Since no role in an investigation remains stagnant, ongoing training, excellent skills in undercover surveillance, an absolute dedication to training and keeping up with the latest technological developments are absolutely necessary to bring a case to a successful conclusion.
Here’s what a PI needs to know well to provide irrefutable evidence of wrongdoing in any case:
Preferably a background in law enforcement
While not being a requirement, you’ll find that most private investigators come from a background in the police or other arms of law enforcement, which is definitely a benefit when it comes to having a working knowledge of investigating out in the field.
This is obvious because of constant changes and challenges faced by the private investigator in a broad range of services, and, since every case is different to the next, nothing beats a background in law enforcement.
An ability to carry out full-service investigations
The team at King Investigators is able to provide full-service investigations, which means that they are able to tackle many different types of cases, such as those for individuals, business owners planning to invest in a company to protect their interests or assisting attorneys in divorce, criminal or custody cases.
A working knowledge of the law
Though there isn’t a need for a formal education in law to practice as a PI, a working knowledge of law is an absolute must.
If a PI ignores the need for this legal knowledge and goes outside of the professional code of conduct that’s enforced by the PSIRA, all you’ll have in the end is inadmissible evidence that’ll be thrown out in a court case.
An ability to function well under pressure
Undercover surveillance carries a great element of danger for any private investigator and, he has to be able to move quickly to adjust as the surveillance conditions change. Then, he has to spend hours sifting through evidence and do research on reams of paperwork, which is a complete shift in gear for him.
The ability to function well under all kinds of pressure takes a massive amount of the training, time and effort in order to deliver a quality final report to a client, but these are qualities essential to the successful conclusion of a case.
A commitment to transparency, honesty & integrity
Despite the fact that there are still, as in any profession, those who’ll take advantage of people who have no idea about what an investigation entails, and lead them around an expensive bush that leaves the client with useless evidence!
However, with Jacques Botha and his team of investigators, you’ll know from the get-go, depending on the investigation, where your money will be going. This is a firm committed to dealing with clients through honesty, transparency and integrity, which is what has earned King Investigators the number one spot they’ve held for over ten years now.
