Kidnapping and Ransom Situation


When dealing with a kidnapping and ransom situation, you need a private investigator on your side who you can trust and that has plenty of experience in the matter. If not handled properly, worse case, it can result in the loss of life. Our Private Investigators can assist the police or even work on their own behalf. We can aid in the ransom delivery and even possibly uncover who is behind the kidnapping.


Kidnapping and Ransom

A kidnapping and ransom situation can be the most traumatic thing to happen in a person's life.  ICS has licensed, trained and compassionate professionals to make sure the outcome of this kind of situation is a positive one.

Our licensed Private Investigators can contact the police (or leave them out) and assist in important details like ransom delivery, communicating with the kidnapper, and even possibly uncovering who the kidnapper is.

Ransom is the practice of holding a prisoner to extort money or property to secure their release

Kidnapping, a word derived from kid = 'child' and nap (nab) = 'snatch', recorded since 1673, was originally used as a term for the practice of stealing children for use as servants or laborers in the American colonies.

In the United States of America, kidnapping for ransom is very uncommon. This is mainly due to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's aggressive stance toward kidnapping. The Bureau made kidnapping for ransom situations a special priority, and continues to do so today. Agents and even Private Investigators who have rescued kidnapping victims have been known to describe the rescue as a personal high point of a career.

In the United States of America, there are a few basic problems with the success of a kidnapping and ransom situation.

  • The challenges involved in exchanging the money for the victim
  • Harsh punishment
  • Convicted kidnappers can expect to face life imprisonment or the death penalty if convicted
  • In many states kidnapping is the only capital crime other than murder
  • The worse risk to benefit ratio compared to other crimes

Presently in other parts of the world kidnapping is considered a business to some criminals.  It can be used as a way to obtain slaves. It is also used as a method to raise funds for such things as wars and militia movements.

In criminal law, kidnapping is the taking away or aspiration of a person against the person's will, usually to hold the person in false imprisonment, a confinement without legal authority. This is often done for a ransom of some kind.

ICS has been in business over 40 years handling kidnapping and ransom situations.  Contact one of our many licensed and trained private investigators for a free and confidential consultation.

Let our compassionate and effective team of investigators help get back safely what has been taken from you.
