How to Choose a PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR in Australia With the exception of Sydney and Gold Coast private investigators must be licenced by   the   relevant   licensing   authority   in   the   State   they   are   located.   In   addition   to individual licences companies offering investigation services must also have a business licence. If you plan to engage an investigation company make sure they have one.  The licences are generally issued and administered by the Police in conjunction with courts   in   most   States   however   in   some   states   or   territories   of   Australia   this   is managed by other government agencies. Professional Body: You can gain further confidence in your choice of private investigator Australia by checking   whether   they   belong   to   any   appropriate   professional   bodies.   These   will generally be advertised on the Investigation website or alternatively framed in their office. © Integral Investigations Sydney Australia

Experience and Specialties: Registration with a professional body may not be sufficient to ensure a particular investigator or firm is the right choice for your particular situation. Certain private investigation companies specialise in certain areas such as surveillance or skip tracing. Make sure the one you choose is right for the job by reading the companys website and reviewing their case studies and media links. Individual private investigator Sydney and Gold Coast too will have different levels of experience. Many are ex­police or ex­army. The contacts and experience gained during these previous professions will often be advantageous during investigations. When   choosing   an   investigator   or   investigation   company   it   is   recommended   to research their claims more thoroughly by viewing their LinkedIn accounts historic media   articles   and   other   investigation   forums   to   confirm   the   validity   of   their statements. Does   the   company   or   individual   write   a   blog   Many   firms   who   specialise   in   a particular area offer regular articles about trending issues in their area of expertise. Alternatively they may be called upon by media to speak as a keynote industry leader. © Integral Investigations Sydney Australia

Location: When considering hiring an private eye it is important to factor in the location of where the investigation is to take place. The investigation company or individual must be licensed in the State where they conduct their inquiries rather than where their client   is   located.   Is   the   company   located   in   the   same   State   you   require   the Investigation in Unless they have a secondary office in another State to where they located it is highly likely they will hire sub­contractors to conduct the work for them.  Do the investigators need to travel interstate or overseas for your requirements It is important to ensure the investigators are licensed in each state and make necessary inquiries to possible licensing or restrictions if travelling abroad. Reputation: When deciding on a firm to use where possible seek recommendations and referrals from others who have used their services before. A little research on the Internet can also identify a wide range of positive and negative comments about others personal experience with the firm. They may be well known in the industry ­ however it may be for all the WRONG reasons © Integral Investigations Sydney Australia

Dont be afraid to ring around and/or email a selection of investigation companies for quotes and advice before making your final decision. There is always more than one way   to   conduct   a   successful   investigation   and   depending   on   an   investigators experience   and   knowledge   base   their   method   may   be   significantly   more   time consuming than the other which will ultimately reflect the final price. Always agree on a budget prior to any investigation taking place and where possible ensure a Client Service Agreement is signed and dated by both parties.
