What Cases do Private Investigators Take?

The world of private investigators still holds great fascination for those of us who watch from the side lines, and who have been influenced by movie characters playing the role of PI.

The lines between fiction and reality, however, have been blurred to a great extent when it comes down to the reality of the world in which a real life private investigator moves, which leaves many asking the question; what cases do private investigators take?

Let’s start with who is considered a legitimate private investigator in South Africa, because this is something the average person doesn’t know, and should, if they do ever need to hire a private investigator.

The only way to know that you’re dealing with a bona fide, qualified, highly trained and experienced private investigator is to find out whether he is registered with the PSiRA, which is the governing body of the security industry in South Africa.

There are standards and ethics to which all PI’s are held, and if they aren’t registered, don’t go near them, doing this is in actual fact illegal, for you and for the PI you hire.

Once that’s established, make sure the private investigator you want to hire is able to take on your case, in other words, does he specialise in one sector, such as business, or does he have experience across the board when it comes to investigations.

The second one is the one you’d be looking for, since most investigations can involve more than one type of technique, such as a combination of surveillance and data research.
