Criminal Investigation | Brian Blackwell Investigations

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 collect evidence for a criminal case
  • To find and interview other witnesses to a crime
  • To gather impartial facts about a crime
  • If you need surveillance or records searches to collect evidence
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.

Why Use a Criminal Investigator?

  • Criminal investigators operate within the law to find evidence 
  • Criminal defense investigators can gather evidence of wrongful conviction or accusation
  • Law enforcement investigators are often busy with other tasks

  • Criminal investigators are not limited by jurisdiction
