What is a Private Investigator?
Private investigators provide a valuable service to professionals, corporations, government agencies, and individuals seeking answers to complex questions. These investigations are frequently employed to identify fraudulent behaviour, conduct due diligence, ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, perform background checks, and address various private investigative matters
Alberta Justice and the Solicitor General regulate investigation agencies in the province. Many investigators belong to various professional organizations and associations. A private investigator performs tasks for our clients that include gritty, in-person sleuthing to research and formal interviews to obtain information legally and ethically.
At Blackhawk Protection, we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver investigative services tailored to our client’s unique needs. Let us advise you so that you can make the right decision moving forward.
Private Investigator Myth’s
Private investigators play a crucial role in solving cases, but it’s important to understand that their capabilities are limited by law. In Alberta, private investigators are not authorized to carry firearms, access police databases, or motor vehicle records. This means that they cannot obtain confidential information by illegal means. To ensure that they operate within the confines of the law, private investigators cannot identify themselves as “Detectives” or imply that they are associated with a police agency. Doing so is strictly prohibited.
Moreover, private investigators cannot wiretap a phone without the individual’s consent, nor can they enter someone’s private property without proper authorization. Their access to email accounts is also restricted, and they cannot hack into anyone’s email account. Breaking into someone’s car is also against the law and is not a legal means of gathering evidence for a case.
It’s important to understand these limitations to avoid any misunderstandings or legal complications when hiring a private investigator. They work within the confines of the law to help solve cases, and it’s always best to consult with them first to ensure that their methods are legal and ethical.
