Hiring a private investigator isn’t like buying groceries or hiring a plumber. It isn’t something that you are likely to do very often, and for some, it may even seem like a big risk. There are many private investigators in Denver, which can make it especially difficult to find the best one for you. At Colorado Background Services, we are dedicated to helping you to feel comfortable about your decision to hire a private investigator. That is why we have come up with this list of questions to ask before hiring a private investigator: 

  • Do you have references?- The best way to get the real story about the private investigator that you are about to hire is by talking to their previous clients. A professional private investigator shouldn’t have any problems with providing you with references.
  • Are you insured and licensed?- Ensure that you aren’t just hiring a random person off of the street. The best way to do this is by making sure that they are fully insured and licensed.
  • Do you ever use unethical tactics to gain information?- This is especially concerning if you will be undergoing a legal proceeding with the information you gain from the private investigator. Make sure that the information that you get was obtained legally!
  • Is the information I give you privileged?- The investigator that you choose will need lots of information from you so that they can work on your case. In order for you to be able to trust your investigator with your information, you need to know if your communication is privileged or not.
