This week I answer a viewer’s question and it’s one of the most common questions I get…
Is it dangerous being a Private Investigator?
Generally, it isn’t too dangerous.
I mean, take a surveillance for example. Even an infidelity case with a cheating wife or husband. This can be a dangerous situation for the police if the are responding to a domestic violence all, but as a Private Detective, when you are on surveillance, (if you do it right!) the subject / cheater never doesn’t even know you’re there!
Of course if the person you’re following finds you following them, well then there could be dangerous consequences to that!
On the other hand, something like process serving (even “just” civil litigation) can be a little more dangerous because the person you’re serving almost always knows you’re there. After all, most of the time you are handing them the course papers!
I do teach some methods in The Investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Process Serving that allow you to safely serve a problem person from a safe distance and in The investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Surveillance I show you all the tricks so when you are on a stake-out or mobile surveillance you can remain (essentially) invisible.
Let me know if you have a question you’d like me to answer in one of my weekly videos.
