Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How do I hire a private investigator in Toronto?
This could be a tough decision to make – whether or not to hire a private investigator. If the investigation is regarding something personal, the decision could be even more difficult. You could want to investigate an infidelity case (cheating spouse or partner), plan a child custody investigation, or seek assistance for a family member or friend in a drug-related situation, and in all the above-mentioned situations, personal details are often revealed. It is always a better call to choose a trusted agency through a reference from a friend or colleague who has used an investigator in Toronto before. If you don’t have a reference, look online for a reliable investigator and an agency specializing in anything from infidelity to computer forensics. Superficially discuss your requirements with investigators until you hire one that fits your needs and budget. Also, it is wise to speak to your lawyer before conducting an investigation, particularly if the investigated results will be produced in court.
Q. Is it too late to hire a private investigator if I have already been to the Police?
It doesn't matter if the police are looking into your case, you can still hire a private investigator. In many cases, your private investigators work in conjunction with the police. Generally, private investigators handle one case at a time and do not work in shifts like the police. In most cases, investigators don't mind working with the police just to bring successful results for the client's case. Private investigators precisely know when they should retreat and allow the Police to take over the case.
Q. How can I know if my investigator is working on my case?
A private investigator will work towards obtaining photos or videos of actions during a surveillance. During times when the target is inactive, your investigator will capture shots of the surrounding area to show their presence. Your private investigator will keep you informed about your case at all times and will be available on call to answer all your questions and address your concerns.
Q. Do private investigators have access to phone log/history and emails?
Private investigators can't legally obtain phone/SMS records or emails for a person without consent. Regardless if it is a family member or friend, every individual expects a certain level of privacy.Illegally obtained records can have serious consequences and result in heavy fines or imprisonment. Discreet Investigations & Security will never gamble with its reputation and integrity. good standing with the law.
Q. What would be the next step if the private investigator fails to find what they have been hired for?

Q. What are the things that a private investigator isn't allowed to do?
A private investigator cannot pose to be a government agent or Police Officer. They cannot act unlawfully and hack into computers, laptops and mobile phones or obtain phone records or bank records. Last but not the least, trespassing is not allowed.
Q. What could happen in case your investigator gets caught?
It doesn't matter who approaches us - be it a commoner or someone from the government/Police, private investigators always deny everything they are questions about.

However, we always abide by all requests coming from the Police.
