As a private investigator, you will eventually get a call from a victim of vandalism who wants you to do surveillance to catch the vandal if he returns the next night. The question is… should you o take that case?
The problem comes down to if the expense of a criminal investigation (which means, in this case, usually means surveillance) is worth the cost.
Usually in vandalism cases it’s not financially worth it because…
1. The odds of the vandal returning the next night are pretty slim.
2. The odds are that the amount of vandalism is far less then the cost of having an investigator out there doing surveillance.
This week I discuss a case I worked where I hit a dead end when a small town chief of police blocked my access to public records and how I used the sheriff’s office to get what I needed to work my case.
The key is to think, “How else can I get this piece of information?”
Seemingly unrelated, but very important… HUGE TIP: There is no shame in keeping your day job while you get your private investigator business up and running!
Finally, If you watch all the way to the end of the video, you’ll see how the advice I give this week (and each week!) can help grow your private detective business!
Let me know if you have any questions!
Committed to your success,
Larry Kaye, P.I.
