Are private investigations legal in Saskatoon?
Yes. However, you need to make sure that the agency you choose is fully licensed and operates legally. The Smith Investigation Agency fully adheres to all Canadian laws and regulations including PIPEDA, the latter representing data protection laws for Canadians. This means all the services we provide and evidence collected is handled not only discreetly but also legally, protecting us and you.
Can Private Investigators in Saskatoon follow individuals?
Yes, but within reason. We can only do so if it pertains to your case specifically. Tracking and monitoring individuals are made possible by discreetness, distant observations, and the use of high-end technology. This enables us to produce a detailed report on that person’s actions, helping you determine whether your suspicions are true. Our tracking, monitoring, and location services are often useful in infidelity and family investigations.
What if my case is urgent and I need Private Investigator services right now?
Some cases are time-sensitive, such as the need for locating missing individuals or securing evidence of a fraud brewing before it takes place. Regardless, you deserve to have your suspicions put to rest with absolute closure, and we are ready to act accordingly. Bear in mind that, the tighter the timeframe and less there is to go on, the more work will be needed on our end that could affect the final cost.
Can a Private Investigator check my phone records?
No. This is not legal, so stay away from any agency that advertises otherwise. There are strict privacy restrictions put in place to protect residents and visitors in Canada, such as the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). The Smith Investigation Agency is fully compliant with such regulations and will never ask for these records.
Can I trust Private Investigators?
We know it can feel strange to reach out to us at first, but rest assured, our services have a history of excellence to back them up. We are Better Business Bureau accredited with an A+ rating, having operated for many years while also training prospective Private Investigators. Plus, the Smith Investigation Agency is a recipient of the Consumer Choice Award from 2017 to 2019 for the Best Private Investigators. In addition, we’ve won the Global Excellence Award of 2017 as the Most Trusted Private Investigation Services Provider in Ottawa.
Do Private Investigators testify in court?
Yes, sometimes. On occasion, the court may call upon us to present our findings if they are deemed substantial enough to shift the verdict during proceedings. Our aim is to collect sufficient evidence, in an entirely legal manner, to help strengthen your argument and lead to the best possible outcome.
Should a Private Investigator be licensed?
Without question, yes. Don’t ever work with a Private Investigator or subsequent agency that isn’t fully certified or licensed or it could spell legal trouble. Always work with experts with years of experience and a track record that indicates fully legal operations, no matter the service offered.
How can I become a Private Investigator?
Becoming a Private Investigator requires thorough background checks through the RCMP. In addition, extensive, rigorous training is required to ensure you aren’t only prepared from a skills-based perspective but also in terms of discretion, professionalism, and situational awareness. That way, you can operate with a full license and with the knowledge needed to make a difference.
