Steve is very responsive, knowledgeable, and efficient. He located two evicted tenants in a very short period of time and served them the court papers. I hope that I will never need any service from a private investigator again. However, if I need to, I will call Steve.

Maghen and her team of private investigators get the job done quickly, and exceed every expectation I had. I highly recommend Wards Investigations!

We serve the following areas: San Francisco, Napa, Marin, Santa Clara, San Joaquin, and Sacramento Counties and Northern California. "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." We provide polygraph services for: * Loss Prevention/Theft * Employment * Background Check * Vandalism * Drug Use * Civil * Government * Criminal * Family Issues * Immigration/Asylum * Infidelity * School and Academics We have a 20-year CHP training, law enforcement experience, emergency readiness, criminal and accident investigations, physical approach of arrest instruction, as well as lie detection. You'll receive a professional polygraph examination following all proper standards for technique, length of time, comparison question setting, question formulation, as well as all the other protocols required for a good polygraph exam. We are a Polygraph Examiners of America (PEOA) member, as well as The PI Group. You should know: During a polygraph exam, we're recording microscopic fluctuations to skin conductance, blood volume, lower and upper breathing, as the examinee replies to a rehearsed 10-question script. The examinee needs to sit very still, answering no or yes with only his/her mouth, and without any movement of the head, as well as answering all questions at the same volume. Four key questions from the client will be used as the exam's heart. Make sure that every question is no more than thirteen words long each, that the questions have no 'or' or 'and' in them, and that there are no words that are 'softening' (we do not say 'sleep with' or 'affair'; we say 'have sexual contact with' or 'have sex with'). The computer instantly and accurately scores the charts between every test, so we'll know which questions they did bad on and did good on, prior to going to the next test chart 5 minutes later. If all instructions and guidelines are followed, we can expect around 95% accuracy. We provide individual-private (one-time) examinations. All fees will be collected prior to any polygraph examination being conducted. A $250.00 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of making an appointment. For Contracted Clients: A ratified contract is required from all agencies before any polygraph examination is performed. Cancellations can be made up to 24 hours before the scheduled examination without financial obligation. Less than twenty-four hours notice of examination postponement or cancellation will be billed at a discount rate. No shows will be charged full price. For additional services or service areas not listed, please contact us.
