Colorado Private Investigator

Local Colorado Private Investigator

Private Investigators in Colorado are required to be licensed in order to conduct Private Investigation services. If your investigation requires the case to move out of state, the private investigator must still abide by any out of state licensing requirements.

Private Investigator in Colorado

ICS of Colorado, ICS’s local Denver-based office, conducts professional and discreet private investigations across the state.  ICS has been helping people for 45 years, with all forms of investigations, including infidelity investigations, child custody, visitation, and support investigations, missing persons investigations, and more. When you need to hire a private investigator in Colorado, turn to the company that you can trust.  ICS strictly adheres to all federal, state, and local laws, so rest assured that any ICS private investigator assigned to your case will be an authorized subcontractor who is fully licensed, qualified, insured, and up to date with all continuing education requirements. At ICS, our Colorado private investigators meet or exceed all industry standards, providing you with effective and discreet investigative services.

Adultery, Infidelity or Cheating Spouse Investigations

ICS of Colorado conducts adultery, infidelity, and cheating spouse investigations.  If you need to catch a cheater in the act, get proof of an affair, or simply set your mind at ease, contact the professionals at ICS of Colorado.  Our qualified private investigators can obtain the proof you need to move forward with your case and protect yourself and your interests from an unfaithful lover.  If you are worried that your partner may be cheating, look for these common signs of cheating: excessive or secretive computer use, hiding of cell phone and personal finances, working uncharacteristically late or going on business trips at the last minute, lack of, or a sudden increase in sexual appetite, being diagnosed with an STD, abnormal activity on the home phone, or claiming that a wedding ring has been lost or stolen. If your partner is engaging in these or other suspect activities, contact ICS to begin an investigation today.

Colorado is an equitable distribution state, so all property obtained during the marriage will be divided equitably during a divorce, as is deemed fair by the judge. Proof of an affair can significantly alter what distribution of assets and debts a judge deems fair, and it can also be a critical piece of information in a child custody case after a divorce.  Even if you aren’t married, a private investigator can reveal invaluable information about the affair, such as the number of additional partners being seen and the amount of money being spent on the affair(s). Contact ICS of Colorado today to begin your free consultation by calling (303) 797-6789, or Toll Free at (888) 223-6494.

If you feel your child’s best interests are not being met by your current custody arrangements, or if child support payments aren’t being made, ICS can help provide the proof you need to take your case in front of a judge. In the course of the child custody investigation, ICS might need to speak to friends, family, childcare workers and co-workers to get the clearest picture of your child’s welfare. At ICS, we will focus solely on your case, and have access to be the best tools and resources available to provide a thorough, discreet and professional investigation. We can solve your case using surveillance, skip tracing, hidden asset checks, public record searches, undercover investigations, and much more.

Missing Person and Locate Person Investigations

Colorado Private Detective

There are several types of missing person and locate person cases, and not all case types are accepted by local police or FBI.  ICS of Colorado can help if you are looking for a long lost friend, a birth parent, estranged relative, and we can even help with current and active missing persons cases, along with cold cases.  ICS of Colorado can help you find someone whether a crime has been committed or not, even if the police have already attempted to solve the case.

Colorado Background Checks

Background checks are one the most common and well known tools a Colorado private investigator can provide.  Often, a background check is the only information a client needs.  In cases where a more in-depth investigation is called for, the background check is a great starting point, providing the investigator and client with valuable leads to pursue.  If you need a Colorado background check, or if you have a case involving one, ICS is ready to work for you to provide the discreet and confidential service you need in a delicate and professional manner.  ICS has been helping people in Colorado just like you get results since 1967.

Computer and Cellular Forensics

In an increasingly technological world, it has become important to keep your personal information safe.  Part of keeping your information safe involves knowing who has been accessing your personal electronic devices, and determining if information has been viewed or copied.  ICS can retrieve and analyze data from electronic storage devices, like desktop and laptop computers, network servers, external storage drives, flash drives, digital cameras, smart phones including the iPhone and Android phones, and more.  All data retrieval methods used by ICS are complaint with all federal and Colorado state laws, so any data recovered will be available to use as evidence.  In addition to recovering emails, instant messages, and text messages, ICS also offers virus and spyware detection and removal, pornography detection, email tracing, computer and network intrusion detection and prevention, Internet history evaluation, and hidden files detection.

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures are steps taken to detect and prevent unwanted surveillance. Technical surveillance often takes the form of eavesdropping by bugging a house, tapping a phone line, or installing hidden cameras, with the intention of committing corporate espionage, privacy invasion, extortion, identity theft, information theft, or stalking. Being the victim of technical surveillance can endanger your personal safety, and leaves you vulnerable to potential financial damages. As part of a TSCM sweep, ICS will sweep for bugs and perform a physical and electronic inspection of the area to check for infrared, laser, audio recording, hidden cameras, wireless microphones, radio transmitters, phone taps, GPS tracking, and cell phone interceptors.

Colorado Private Investigator
