The Power of Deduction also works for PI's as well!

Hello, fellow investigators and all those who aspire to be one of us and all those individuals in between and behind the scenes. It has long been my mission to induce what we learn on the streets and from talking to people in every day situations and well-common sense. At some point others who hire us must know that we have some idea what we are doing and thus questioning our judgement is not really the way to go.
 
I am referring to when verification is being made about a claimants presence inside the residence, or another residence, or a corner store etc.

Surveillance Street Smarts

Surveillance-Street Smarts, Do You have What it Takes?
 
The question at hand is what does it mean to have street smarts when conducting surveillance. It means when your on the street and get urself into a situation of either exposure or being questioned by police, go with neither! Let me first state that we ALL have been in questionable places where our position was compromised. However, novice investigators tend to panic and reveal there intentions either by fleeing onsite or botching there reasoning when confronted.

Unfinished Business

Greetings to all fellow investigators, clients, and all those in between. In these days and times
could it be that we have forgotten what it means to still demonstrate honor as well as a good defense. What does that mean? what is he talking about? Im referring to the requisition, distribution, and containment of information. It would appear that some of us (Not All) have been misled into thinking that you can use personal information for your own gain.
 
Perhaps it comes from the instinct of self preservation or what have you, I'm not quite sure, but in the end when you get caught, set-up, or just expose yourself is it really worth it? I had a recent issue where an individual all but pointed out that he has had the displeasure of being involved in such an event, and concluded there could be, or would be such an occurrence if he didnt get the proper parameters in place. Meaning he wanted everything short of a shoe size and favorite food! It is not uncommon to be cautious but to outright point fingers for the dirty laundry of others should by no-means, conclude the entire private system of investigation is faulty. So all of you who operate by a ANY MEANS NECESSARY clause should ask yourself one question: DO the ends justify the means: when others pick up the tab for your incompetence? Dont think too hard if you have to your one of those people! See how easy that was! 

To Pay or Not to Pay-On time that is!

Good afternoon, or morning according to when you read this blog, it amazes me that would be clients and long standing ones with rush jobs don't rush funds after the fact. Case in point is that work has been performed and to a certain satisfaction I might add; then of course invoices are submitted-but hey where is the money? I think of Jerry McGuire-SHOW ME THE MONEY? Do we not have to eat? DO we not have bills? Expenses for the assignments that have been completed-Everyone is tightening their belts this is true but what is also true is that FAIR is FAIR-Try not paying that car note, or insurance bill-You would be cut-off. Ever stop to think what would happen if we cut-them off for non-payment_yes we would be financially stunned. However, sometimes these lessons are worth more than money-and so is our time-No? 

Insight into Investigation

The following is just one investigators opinion, insight and outlook, not be taken lightly, or as gospel but sometimes informational purposes. It appears that in this line of work some individuals involved have little or no understanding o the truth. When you accept this line of work be sure you are well rounded and prepared; not just motivated by taking video or supplying license plate numbers. I believe you should be schooled in the law itself because some firms would have you undertake unlawful practices for their own gain, for example: tresspassing, harrassment, false representation of the facts.
