What is a Michigan Private Investigator?

By Michigan law we are actually called Private Detectives. A private detective is a professional trained in the art of investigations and surveillance.

In order to conduct investigations and offer such services to the public, the state must issue a license and the private investigator must purchase a bond and file it with the state. Like with an attorney or doctor, the State of Michigan has mandated that certain qualifications, training and or experience for licensure be met by the P.I. to protect the public from those who do not have the experience or qualifications to handle a case like yours properly.

Each private investigator’s training is and experience is varied and tends to focus on one certain area as opposed to being expert at everything, again much like a doctor or accountant. Often times that experience comes from law enforcement, military service and research related fields.

The main focus of a private investigator’s capability is to take whatever information you have and to go use that to find whatever information or evidence you need.

One exceptional attribute that a Michigan private investigator has that most other lack is a strict client confidentiality. In Michigan, the private detective-client relationship is protected and has been tested in court. What this means is that your case will remain strictly confidential. We cannot and will not discuss or inform anyone about your case!

What does a Michigan Private Investigator actually do?

The job of a Michigan private investigator, or Michigan private detective, is to gather information for individuals, lawyers, businesses and government agencies alike. We work on many different types of cases and frequently are found assisting attorneys in preparing for litigation or criminal defense matters, helping businesses with matters of security or information gathering, asset protection and research and helping the general public with a variety of legal, financial and personal problems including infidelity. Most Michigan private investigators are trained to perform specific functions like spousal surveillance, background checks, interviewing, locating individuals and research. We also have access to computerized databases and sources of information that the public does not, which allow us to quickly obtain massive amounts of information.

A good Michigan private detective will confidentially get you the answers you need, quickly and accurately.

What special powers do we have as Michigan Private Investigators?

None. We are not law enforcement agents and we are not allowed special access to government information or records.

Beware of any Michigan private investigator who tells you that they can get information like “tax records”, police files, secret tape recording and the like. They may have contacts like police officers or government agent’s who are willing to help them to break the law for money, but they are still breaking the law and you run the risk or prosecution if they get caught. If they advertise that they were former law enforcement or a former federal agent they should know how to conduct an investigation thoroughly, but they should not be getting access to information or resources that the public cannot.

The good news is Michigan has an excellent private investigator community and few of these types are around!
