In mid Summer I was shopping for private security for special guests I will be working with in 2014. I researched a couple of local companies and had to leave a message on their phone rather than being able to speak to someone directly. I then decided to canvas my LinkedIn professionals and came across FirstLine Protective Services. Mr. Creque immediately responded to my inquiry and gave me some valuable advice and professional pointers, concerning the type service I would need for my event. After speaking with him (and researching the company reviews) I know my foreign dignitaries will be well protected during their visit, while participating in my program. I look forward to working with FirstLine Protective Service.

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!

Raymond Ranno is excellent and very professional. He is available to speak with, an excellent listener and very detail orientated. He follows through on his word, is punctual, and amazing when he actually is performing the work. He has a sharp eye, notices every detail, and applies investigative skills for issues that one would not even realize are needed to be examined. We are extremely pleased with the results of his service, and immediately asked him to advance our original request, and the results have been outstanding. By engaging Mr Ranno you will know that the job will be accomplished above and beyond what you thought you needed.

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.
