How to talk to the police so you get exactly what you want.

This Tuesday I’m teaching two main things…

First: The phrase you can use when you want to call the police on someone but your not quite sure what to say.

The phrase is, “I would like to report a suspicious person.”

You’re not saying the person is a criminal. You’re not making any accusations. You know in your gut something doesn’t seem right and you think it should be called in. You know… “See something, say something”.

Second: How to talk to the police so you get the results you want.

Look up the police codes for your local area and notice some of the key phrases.

For example, maybe a 10-16 is a “Disturbance”. That means you use the word “disturbance” when you call in. Or a 10-38 is a “Property destruction in progress” or 10-38a “Property destruction report”. Do you see the subtle difference?

Of course, only use the phrase not the code! Never call in and say, “I need an officer to take a 10-38a.” You’ll just sound like a weirdo wanna’ be.

The basic idea is to know the phrases that the police use, such as “loitering” or “weapon implied but none seen”, and use those phrases to that the police are dispatched correctly and are prepared to quickly resolve the problem. You don’t want to waste time having to explain to the officer information s/he doesn’t need or want.

For example…

Wrong: “So the other day I saw a homeless guy digging thought the dumpster out back and I thought it was kinda’ weird. He just seemed to be hanging out and now I think he was, like, watching people. So today I come in and find that it looks like someone tried to pry open the back door. Blah, blah, blah…”

Right: “I want to report some property damage from a possible burglary attempt.”

Do I even have to add this warning… Never lie and don’t exaggerate thinking you’ll get a faster police response or whatever. The cops will figure out your lie and you’ll end up losing credibility (and rightly so). Then the next time you need the police, the dispatcher may add on to the end of the run. “Be advised, we’ve been out there before and the caller is a 16b (mentally disturbed person).”

Do they have to touch it? Process Server training plus a video bonus.

In this Tuesday’s video I teach you that the person you’re serving does not have to touch the court papers.

Plus, I share with you some footage I never intended for the internet, but it’s simply too good of a summary of what I teach on The Investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Process Serving.

Here’s the thing…

Be sure to check out the complete DVD video training course where I teach you how to be a Process Server. Maybe you want to serve process for a little extra income, maybe you want to do it as your full time job or maybe you just want to do it because it’s the quickest, easiest way to get Private Investigator experience!

But, no matter what, you owe it to yourself to at least try this because with my guarantee you love it or simply send it back for a refund of every penny you paid. That means…

What does a Private Investigator look like?


Can you tell a P.I. just by looking at him?

That’s a trick question because many Private Investigators are women!

So then, what is P.I. work like?

Well, there is a lot of drudgery in detective work.  I like to say if you followed me around, filming my work all week, you’d probably get enough interesting footage for a half hour TV show.  (I figure about 23 minutes without commercials.) That’s not much, but, then again, how many jobs can say that?

Let’s face it, what we do is kinda’ cool.  Most people never get to see the things we get to see or do the things we get to do.

A lot of what we do is hunt people. Sure, it’s a catch and release hunt, and frequently we hunt them with a video camera – rather than a gun (usually).   But still, how many people do that?!?!  It’s kinda’ cool.

Check out this Tuesday’s video and learn how to keep your ego in check about this.

No one should know what we can do and certainly not HOW we do it!

In this video I even share with you a real life case where a guy who claimed to be a Private Detective did a horrible job – a real P.I. Fail – all because he wanted to “look like the real thing”.  He was even decked out like some kind of S.W.A.T team member!  What a goof-ball.

Remember:  Keep your “super power” a secret.

What is process serving?

In this Tuesday’s video I teach you how to serve process. Basically how to be a Process Server. Very specifically I teach you…

1. How to file paperwork with the court. Don’t worry, it’s super easy. I even show you a pack of papers like the ones you will be delivering as a Process Server.

2. How much do Process Servers make? Usually $50.00+ per service pack you deliver. [2023 UPDATE: Usually $65+ per pack!] However, if you have to do track down the person, if they are refusing to take the court papers or if you have to do surveillance, then you are going to charge more than fifty bucks. Way more!

3. Also I give you a real-world case study on how serving process can very quickly turn into a full blown case with skip tracing and surveillance.

Be sure to check out the complete streaming video training course where I teach you how to be a Process Server including a section on Detective Work where I teach a mini course on skip tracing.
