Description of Private Investigations in Columbus


Columbus Private Investigator

A private investigator in Columbus must apply to the Georgia Board of Private Detectives and Security Agencies and pass licensing requirements, including a thorough background check. While many Columbus private investigators come from a law enforcement or military background, it is not a requirement for employment as a private investigator. Often times a degree in Criminal Justice or other security and investigation work can be just as important to prospective employers.

In the State of Georgia, it is against the law to provide the services of a private investigator without a Georgia Private Investigator License. You can rest assured that any Columbus private investigator assigned to your case with ICS is an authorized sub-contractor fully licensed and insured in accordance with Georgia State Laws and participates in the required continuing education.

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures

Technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM) eavesdropping detection and bug sweeps are designed to detect any means of eavesdropping or electronic bugs in use at your home, office or vehicle. The TSCM professionals with ICS are highly qualified, certified and accredited. Whether your case involves suspicion of corporate espionage, stalking, intrusion into your private affairs, extortion, identity theft, or any other malicious attempt to harm you through information theft, the TSCM professionals at ICS are ready to assist you with an in-depth, comprehensive survey. A technical surveillance countermeasures sweep with ICS involves both physical and electronic inspection of the area of concern to determine if any means of eavesdropping or information theft are in use, like infrared, laser, audio recording, video recording, phone taps, GPS tracking, hidden cameras, wireless microphones, radio transmitters, cell phone interceptors, and more. If you suspect that one of these devices, or any other means of eavesdropping or information theft, have been used against you, contact ICS today to begin a TSCM eavesdropping detection and bug sweep. A technical surveillance countermeasures eavesdropping detection and bug sweep is a service offered by ICS and is not itself an investigation; ICS will work with a Columbus private investigator to report findings and take action in the event of a discovery of illegal surveillance activities.

If you need a Columbus background check or an investigation involving one, the professionals at ICS are ready to work for you to provide the discreet and confidential service you need. ICS has been helping people in Columbus just like you get results since 1967.
