We investigate crimes, including burglary and theft. Crimes like these are usually reported to the police and investigated. However, common high volume crimes, such as burglary, are not always solved by police. If a member of the public feels that police can’t, or won’t, investigate further, they may retain the services of a private investigator or detective. P.I.’s can follow up on leads and locate potential witnesses, suspects and stolen goods. The end of the police investigation doesn’t mean the case is over.
