Indianapolis Private Investigator Services

The Approach and Methods of Our Indiana Investigators

Each of our clients is unique and brings with them a special situation to be investigated that might include any number of variables which could require one or more methods of investigation. Thus, in order to simplify the types of services we offer, we have categorized them on this website: Legal, Forensic, Insurance, Corporate, Private, and Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM). Each category of service is meant to help clients define their objectives and clarify the nature of information needed.

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.

Was It Really an “Air Tight” Criminal Case?

DeVon’s criminal defense attorney called us and explained that the police had an “airtight” case against his client for multiple felony charges. DeVon’s aunt was footing the legal bill and told him she didn’t care about the cost as she believed her young nephew was innocent of the charges. The attorney was fresh out of law school and was a sole practitioner and pretty green. Apparently, DeVon was seen by two witnesses breaking into an elderly couple’s home in a ritzy neighborhood and carrying out a large trash bag, ostensibly with stolen items and dumping them into his car. They didn’t get the license plate number but did obtain a general description of the car. DeVon was later stopped by the police who found an

First, he had admitted that his company was guilty of improper employment background checks, specifically a criminal background search for each county of residence, but he was changing the SOP to implement authorized and updated criminal history checks.
