PI Hiring Faqs - Private Detective, page 2
Can a Private Investigator or Detective conduct surveillance on anyone and is it legal?
Absolutely. Surveillance is something we do all the time. There are really very few limitations except for placing cameras/recording devices inside of private homes or areas. People should understand this simple issue. If you do things in public, or which can be "viewed" by the public, it is generally something which a Private investigator can use to develop information on your activities.
Would you recommend a "regular person" try to do a surveillance on their own?
No. Surveillance requires training and experience. Liability issues may arise if something goes wrong. If knowing someone's activity is important, hire a professional.
When should I consider requesting a background check from a Private Detective?
It has been our experience over the years that if the situation is important enough to affect your personal, business, or financial future, strong consideration should be given to a background check. This is especially important if you have a "gut" feeling something is wrong or the person is not always open regarding past activities or issues. In today's world we often don't trust our instincts enough, however, they are usually very accurate! A background check provided by a licensed PI will resolve any doubt or questions you might have concerning someone. Additionally we can help you interpret the information found that you can make a wise decision.
Can you report someone for hiring an investigator?
Generally, no. You can, however, report an investigator involved in a crime or someone posing as an investigator without a license in California.

Do private and police investigators work together?
Not usually, but sometimes. In very specials cases a client of a private investigator and their attorney may request cooperation with investigators of a law enforcement agency.
Do private investigators have to work with police?
No, but it's possible they can. Sometimes they do, but most times they don't. It depends on the case.
Can city police hire private investigators?
Yes and they do quite often. Sheriff's departments do as well as municipalities of all sizes employ private investigators.
Can police hire citizens to do surveillance?
Yes, but they'd be crazy to do so. It would expose them to civil liability.
