Private detectives and investigators offer many
services, including executive, corporate, and celebrity protection;
pre-employment verification; and individual background profiles. They
also provide assistance in civil liability and personal injury cases,
insurance claims and fraud, child custody and protection cases, and
premarital screening. Increasingly, they are hired to investigate
individuals to prove or disprove infidelity.
Most detectives and investigators are trained to

cameras, binoculars, and a cell phone, until the desired evidence is
