Keen competition is expected for most jobs despite much faster than average employment growth
Employment change. Employment of private detectives and investigators is expected to grow 22 percent over the 2008–18 decade, much faster than the average for all occupations. Increased demand for private detectives and investigators will result from heightened security concerns, increased litigation, and the need to protect confidential information and property of all kinds. The proliferation of criminal activity on the Internet, such as identity theft, spamming, e-mail harassment, and illegal downloading of copyrighted materials, also will increase the demand for private investigators. Employee background checks, conducted by private investigators, have become standard for an increasing number of jobs. Growing financial activity worldwide will increase the demand for investigators to control internal and external financial losses, to monitor competitors, and to prevent industrial spying. More individuals are investigating care facilities, such as childcare providers, hospices, and hospitals. Job prospects. Keen competition is expected for most jobs because private detective and investigator careers attract many qualified people, including relatively young retirees from law enforcement and military careers. The best opportunities for new jobseekers will be in entry-level jobs in detective agencies. Opportunities are expected to be favorable for qualified computer forensic investigators.

THE latest documents released by lawyers trying to prove the innocence of the “Lockerbie bomber” show that the evidence of the key witness, the Maltese shopkeeper who supposedly “identified” Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, was of no value in getting to the truth behind the terrorist atrocity. Despite this, Tony Gauci was paid a staggering $2m “reward” by the US authorities; and a further $1m went to his brother Paul, who never even gave evidence but kept his brother on message.

When People Go Missing
From our own experience here, we know that people go missing for many different reasons. It may be because they feel they have no choice and, or that their family may be ‘better off’ without them. The act of going missing is often preceded by stressful life events such as depression, trauma, unhappiness, financial worries, abuse, arguments or domestic violence. “Some people go missing for a day, some for months or years; some return and sadly, some never do. Some people want to be found, some do not. Some only know they want to be found when they hear that someone is looking for them”. There are many methods a PI utilise when dealing with a missing person case for example: interviewing others, following leads, drawing public attention or discreet Investigation and much more

Private Investigators - Teens & Drugs
“Drugs and Teenagers, Do you suspect your teenager is doing drugs” Drugs and teenagers are a deadly combination. When teenagers get into drugs they can become very creative and will go to incredible lengths to conceal it. You may not notice anything for quite some time and then something small will get your attention. Here are some clues that something may be amiss with your teenager: * Who they are associating with * Aggression towards you – their loved ones * Missing school or work. * Personal finances a mess and always asking for more money from you. * Glazed eyes – may sound like a stereotype – but it is a clue to look for. * Itchy skin turning into sores can be related to drug use. * Unexplained weight loss. * Erratic sleeping patterns – not able to sleep at night and then crashing for extended periods. * Being paranoid is also a sign of drug usage. * Involved in crimes such as burglary to fund their habits. A Private Investigator can be a great way to finding out the truth about what your teen is doing away from home! A Investigator can place a discreet surveillance upon the concerned individual / teenager! This would then generate a detailed report of activities for example: places they go, addresses, persons they meet with and any other unforeseen activities..........

About Private Investigators
A private investigator or private detective (often shortened to PI or private eye) is a person who can be hired by individuals or groups to undertake investigations. Private investigators often work for attorneys in civil cases. Many work for insurance companies to investigate suspicious claims. Before the advent of no-fault divorce, many private investigators were hired to search out evidence of adultery or other illegal conduct within marriage to establish grounds for a divorce. Despite the lack of legal necessity for such evidence in many jurisdictions, according to press reports collecting evidence of adultery or other "bad behaviour" by spouses and partners is still one of the most profitable activities investigators undertake, as the stakes being fought over now are child custody, alimony, or marital property disputes. Many jurisdictions require PIs to be licensed, and they may or may not carry firearms depending on local laws. Some are ex-police officers, some are former federal agents, some are ex-spies and some are ex-military, although many are not. Most of them do not arrest criminals or put them in custody. They are expected to keep detailed notes and to be prepared to testify in court regarding any of their observations on behalf of their clients. Great care is required to remain within the scope of the law, otherwise the investigator may face criminal charges. Irregular hours may also be required when performing surveillance work. PIs also engage in a large variety of work that is not usually associated with the industry in the mind of the public. For example, many PIs are involved in process serving, the personal delivery of summons, subpoenas and other legal documents to parties in a legal case. The tracing of absconding debtors can also form a large part of a PI's work load. Many agencies specialize in a particular field of expertise. For example, some PI agencies deal only in tracing. Others may specialize in technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM), or Electronic Counter Measures (ECM), which is the locating and dealing with unwanted forms of electronic surveillance (for example, a bugged boardroom for industrial espionage purposes). Other PIs, also known as Corporate Investigators, specialise in corporate matters, including anti-fraud work, the protection of intellectual property and trade secrets, anti-piracy, copyright infringement investigations, due diligence investigations and computer forensics work.
