What is a Criminal Investigation?

When Do You Need A
Criminal Investigator?

  • If law enforcement investigations produce little or no results
  • When you need evidence gathered for criminal defense

  • To gather impartial facts about a crime

A criminal investigation is an undertaking that seeks, collects, and gathers evidence for a case or specific purpose. A criminal investigator looks for clues and evidence to determine whether a crime has taken place. If a crime has been committed, criminal investigators may look into the background of the accused and seek to uncover who committed the crime. Criminal investigators undertake several investigation techniques in order to find the necessary evidence. Police agencies are committed to criminal investigations of every kind, but a growing number of individuals are choosing to launch their own criminal investigations with the help of professional investigators.
