Doug Carter, CEO of this investigation firm, couldn't take my case because I'm in another state. He was in my list of options and I chose him based on that and his very reasonable prices. Although he wasn't able to help, he called me personally and gave me other options! My car was stolen. Doug told me not only that hiring a pro investigator would be a waste of my money, but that it would likely not be any more effective than waiting for the police to find my car. He was comforting and insightful and he didn't even have to spend those 20 minutes on the phone with me. Having someone break into your home, car or business feels like a violation and it's awful! Law enforcement and people private investigators really have to care about that in order to provide you with top notch service. I believe this company provides that hands over fist! If your in New York, and you need an investigator, give this company a chance! I'm better off knowing the truth regarding my situation and JSD Protective Services are obviously honest and thorough!

I never thought I'd ever have to hire a Private investigator. I don't anyone actually thinks they will either.. and I couldn't have stumbled upon a better company or a better private investigator than Stephon. I am very grateful to him for all of his help. On a scale from 1-5 he deserves at least a 10.

Iuliana was invested in helping me resolve the issue with which I was faced. She was incredibly thorough in her investigation. She took her time and cared about the work she produced. When we sat down to discuss the matter, Iuliana was present, she didn't rush the conversation. She was responsive to my inquiries and provided her professional opinion regarding what information was or wasn't needed to accomplish the task at hand. If you're looking for a dedicated, competent and practical investigator, I would recommend her enthusiastically.

Bob and Hannah at PI 360 worked with me through every step of the investigation, never leaving me out of the loop. They were both very professional and detailed. My husband is extremely sneaky and isn't easy to find or follow but they provided me with excellent, clear evidence. They went above and beyond in order to find the answers I was looking for. Bob and Hannah were personable, caring and determined to help me with my situation. I'm personally going to recommend Bob & Hannah to my friends and family. I would highly recommend using PI 360 for ANY investigation or need you have!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a private investigator do?

First and foremost, good private investigators follow laws. Unlike on TV, they don’t break in windows or hack into hospital computer systems to get you intel. When you hire a private investigator, you’re hiring a professional to gather facts and find information for you. Although they can’t obtain certain information (such as health records), they do have access to information that most civilians do not. Often private investigators are hired to perform surveillance or background checks or investigate cases such as adultery, child custody, missing persons, hidden assets, or debugging, and theft or other crimes.

Private investigators can be hired to interview people and provide that information to the client, perform photo or video surveillance, monitor activity at a location where you suspect criminal activities or questionable behavior, track a person’s movements, find missing people, do deep-dive background checks, and more. Private investigation can be helpful if you’re trying to get a court order but need evidence. Private investigators can also help find birth parents. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210 per hour.

What does a private investigator cost?

Private investigation isn’t just for blockbuster action movies. Hiring a private investigator can help in all kinds of situations ranging from finding a birth parent to improving personal security. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210, although pricing often hovers between $40 and $100 depending on the complexity of the services you need. Where you live in the country will affect your costs for private investigation; larger cities have higher business overhead and a higher cost of living, which in turn means higher service rates. The complexity of your case can also affect cost. A basic background check may have a flat rate, while hiring a private investigator to help with your child custody case may require more legwork and research, and therefore cost more. Some private investigators work on retainer. A retainer is essentially a nonrefundable deposit you pay to the professional — meaning you have retained their services — who then works against that amount. Here are some examples of average private investigation costs:

  • Hourly rate: $60-$70; costs can vary based on current fuel prices.
  • Flat rate: $100 for comprehensive background investigation services.
  • Retainer: $1,500 minimum retainer required by some pros before starting work.
