Investigators, also known as private investigators, perform surveillance and research for a corporation, law enforcement agency or individual clients. An investigator performs interviews and observation on a given situation to determine the nature of what is happening for a client. Investigators are hired to go out into the world and discover information related to a client or employer’s wishes. For example, if an investigator is hired regarding an insurance fraud case, then he or she goes out to examine, follow and interview witnesses related to the case. He or she then compiles all valid information, writes up a report for the client with all the findings and supplies an overall summary of the case.
