A private investigator is hired by individuals, businesses, or legal entities to conduct investigative assignments on a private basis. They offer services that are similar to those of law enforcement agencies but operate independently and outside the scope of the government. They are hired to gather information, uncover facts, and provide their clients with detailed reports or evidence related to specific cases. They must maintain confidentiality and adhere to legal and ethical standards in their work, ensuring the privacy of both their clients and the subjects of their investigations. Their objective is to provide their clients with accurate and valuable information, enabling them to make informed decisions, uncover the truth, or resolve complex issues.
