Businesses can and do use the services of private investigators when there is theft in the work place. A private investigator can determine where theft and loss are taking place, and to provide solutions to prevent additional theft and loss in the future.

One of the thefts where a central Ohio business might utilize a private investigator is to look into possible insurance fraud. Fraudulent disability claims cost the insurance industry millions of dollars annually. A private investigator can check into the validity of insurance claims to determine their legitimacy.

Apart from their value to business owners, private investigators are often used by individuals in infidelity and child custody matters. When one partner suspects the other of adultery, a private investigator is hired to provide proof that an affair has or is taking place. This evidence is used in divorce proceedings to help the injured party to achieve a more substantial financial settlement. Private investigators can also use their resources in tracking down non-custodial parents who may have taken children.

As of late, with every city cutting cost by reducing their police presence private investigators now assist in solving crimes once investigated only by local law enforcement. They also assist the falsely accused in making sure justice prevails.

These are just a few ways that a private investigator can help an individual or business owner. It is a job with a varied portfolio and varied experienced professionals. A private investigator’s main duty is to find the truth in order that his or her client can make an informed decision.
