How to Hire a Private Investigator


How to Hire a Private Investigator: Engaging an ICS Private Investigator is Easy, dependable, and capable of getting the results you need.


The first step of your case is to let us know about it, and let us analyze it for you! This process is fast, easy, and, most importantly, free of charge. Just select your client type, case type, and location, and provide basic information about your case via our secure, confidential website. We will take a look at your case and get back to you quickly with comprehensive information as to just what we can do to help. The process is painless, simple, and gives you all the information you need to make an informed decision.

The ICS motto is "Integrity." We hold everything we do to the highest standards of ethics and moral conduct to give you the best, most honest service in the industry. That's why, after we consult for your case, we spend time planning the scope and details of your case with you, determining exactly what we will do for you, and how far we will go in investigating your case. We will never take on any investigation that you do not authorize; this saves you money and lets us provide the efficient, cost-effective service that we've been proud of for nearly 40 years.

Private Investigation Areas Served

Once we've discussed the specifics of our case with you, we determine how that turns into the precise, contractual, and monetary obligations to which the investigation will be bound. This is a must when hiring a private investigator.

We employ professional and affordable case managers and case analysts to ensure that you get the most cost-effective service possible. We get as much information from you as possible before starting your case, so that we can give you an honest estimate of a minimum deposit amount we can work most effectively within. Once this minimum fee is paid, we can put the full resources of ICS to work for you. We want you to know exactly what you're paying, and exactly what you're paying for.

Once we have properly built your case, we send our trained investigators to go do what they do best. Decades of professional experience, the sharpest minds in the business, and all the most cutting-edge technology are brought to bear on your case using the unique, exhaustively tested ICS Method of Approach. We provide the services you need as quickly and effectively as possible.

As part of our customer service, we offer our customers regular detailed written and verbal reports on everything we've done and what we've accomplished, as pat of all of our services. This is a critically important part of what we do for you, because oftentimes the nature and scope of an investigation will change, and you deserve to be informed so you can direct us to act in a manner that continues to serve your best interests. Even if the investigation proceeds exactly as planned, we feel you should always be kept up-to-date on everything we're accomplishing for you. What ultimately matters to us is getting you results. At ICS we're like the proverbial Gila monsters; we never let go until we're sure there's nothing left to bite. For us, closure doesn't mean giving up, and it doesn't mean arbitrarily stopping work on an investigation. Closure for us means that we've put in the work to do the service you asked. We can do no less for you.

It's our desire that the closure of your case isn't the end. Instead, it's our hope that you're so impressed by our professionalism and effectiveness that the end of your case is the beginning of a solid relationship. There's no more satisfying reward for us than to get an appreciative letter from a happy customer, or to hear that you referred us to your friends and family. To us, a letter or referral is living, breathing proof that the integrity by which we conduct ourselves isn't some old-fashioned, ineffective philosophy, but rather aSurveillance Investigator rock-solid foundation which anyone can rely on.
