Prior to commencing work, our lead private investigator will discuss in depth with our clients their needs and situation, either by telephone or in-person at our Indianapolis office, in order to gather all available information necessary to prepare the proper approach and develop a suitable plan of action. Often times, projects may require input from the full Indianapolis-based staff, thus permitting us to draw upon an assortment of experiences from many different investigators within the company. This Indiana private investigator team approach allows for the development of solutions which are scalable, flexible and result-oriented. When necessary, we also consult with our overseas operatives in matters of an international scale.

After obtaining the client`s approval to proceed, the appropriate specialists and investigators are given their assignments, with much of the initial research being conducted from within our Indianapolis office whenever possible in order to minimize overall expenses. These preliminary investigative results are then passed along to the field investigators who will gather the remaining information. Thereafter, an initial investigative report is relayed to the client, along with recommendations for further inquiry, if appropriate. Many times, the information revealed may result in the client`s request and authorization for additional investigation. In such circumstances, our worldwide network of private investigators and highly-skilled specialists has been our strength. Our operation permits the investigations to evolve through multiple stages of case development, and even overseas if necessary.
