What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our agency, like most, require a minimal initial retainer fee. This is like a deposit. We will take a draw from this using our hourly rate until it is used.
Our hourly rate ranges from $60 - 85 per hour.
In most cases, there are no travel time costs or mileage costs. Our billing is very simple and easy to understand.
Each week the client will receive an itemized statement of services provided and is expected to pay any balance prior to the end of the next calendar week.
There are certain special pricing for court appearances and the rental of special equipment, such as GPS trackers, hidden cameras or searches.
We also offer criminal background checks for $15 each. A consent form is required and we will return the results within 24 hours of the request received.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
All of our agents are required to maintain 16 hours of continued education each year in an effort to remain with our agency and in compliance with the State of Georgia regulations. Most of our agents are also weapons certified and undergo strict qualification standards training every year. More information regarding the continued education requirements can be found at http://rules.sos.state.ga.us/pages/GEORGIA_BOARD_OF_PRIVATE_DETECTIVE_AND_SECURITY_AGENCIES_/index.html
What types of customers have you worked with?
The majority of our private investigation work is helping clients through the discovery process. A wife or husband may be curious if their spouse is cheating, a mother is questioning the inappropriate parenting of their child when in the care of another adult. We are experts in installing and locating hidden devices such as cameras, audio recorders, vehicle trackers and cell phone applications. If you think someone is spying on you, no matter the location, call us and we can very easily locate the equipment or software. Often times we coach our clients on how to find clues about their spouse or children's behavior and usually this advice is FREE.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
All of our case work is strictly confidential and is never discussed outside of the client without expressed permission. Of course there are times when collaborating with our client's attorney or marriage counselor is requested but only with the client's permission.
We have successfully accomplished the task of investigating police, doctors, lawyers, military spouses, nurses, politicians, accountants, public figures, professional athletes, performers.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It does not take prior law enforcement experience to be a great private detective. That is why we employ agents with varying professional backgrounds. Doctors, contractors, entrepreneurs, musicians, prior military and people of all backgrounds are found in our profession. It takes someone with attention to detail, patience and a heart for others to become a great professional private investigator.
