Sometimes you need to hire a private detective or a private investigator.  Perhaps you need a private detective for a personal or family matter such as a cheating spouse, or perhaps you need a private investigator for a business to investigate fraud, or employee theft, or to do background checks of employees.  If you need a private detective for a personal matter it could be an issue involving a significant other, or spouse who has been using credit cards too much, or a friend who owes you money.  Here is where we will tell you about private detectives and private investigators and detective agencies and investigation agencies in the Southern California area.  And we have some tips here for keeping yourself and your property safe.

See our "Home / Business Security" page for information about security and serveillance systems including wireless video cameras, recording devices, even ball point pens that recorders built inside them.


Update January 20, 2016  What is the "big season" for a private investigator? It's around Valentine's Day -- and Valentine's Day is probably the biggest day of the year for catching cheaters. In the days leading up to Valentine's Day is when cheating spouses might make big purchases in jewelry stores, and on Valentine's Day is when the cheating spouse might be visiting with and spending time with someone they shouldn't be. After Valentine's Day is when private investigators have a field day going through credit card receipts and checking bills -- and it's when a spouse who suspects they are married to a cheater can do the same thing.


Update January 20, 2016 The private detectives at L.A. Intelligence have more than twenty years of experience doing private detective and investigations work including looking for signs that you have a cheating spouse.  L. A. Intelligence serves all of Southern California with a full range of private detective services including under cover investigations as well as investigations for businesses including employee bacground checks and investigations of employee theft.  S. Brian Mathews of L. A. Intelligence is a licensed private detective.  Call (310) 894-5200 for information about personal and business services.  Personal detective services can include background checks and activities of significant others so you are protected.

Do you need a private detective for Valentine's Day?  The experts know that around Valentine's Day and other major holidays that a significant other might violate your trust.  A qualified private investigator from L.A. Intelligence can quickly determine what is really going on and discover if there is a cheating heart before love hurts too much.  Call a private detective before love hurts if you suspect you have a cheating spouse.

And if you have a business, are you certain you hired the right people?  Are you missing inventory or cash receipts?  A qualified private detective from L.A. Intelligence can help you monitor your business and stop losses.  Watch our video report below with S. Brian Mathews who is now with L. A. Intelligence (formerly L.A. Investigations).  You can also reach him through their website or call 310-894-5200 for confidential work.


Update July 22, 2011  There are some very simple tools that investigators use -- and that you can use to gather information.  For example, you want to know if someone has opened your office drawers?  Of you want to find out if someone entered your office when you're out on a sales call or away for the evening?  Sure, you can have high tech surveillance cameras record your office and have motion detectors trigger the cameras and recorders.  You can also have video surveillance systems that will link to your computer so that you can view your office from anywhere you have computer access.  But here is a simpler and easier idea that only costs a paper-clip -- so read on.

Before high tech security systems were developed, investigators and the suspicious would place a paperclip at the top of desk drawer so that if the drawer were opened the paperclip would fall inside the drawer.  If the paperclip was still in the position it was placed in by the investigator, it was likely no one opened the drawer. 

Another technique was to bend a paper-clip so that it formed a tent or triangle-- and this paper-clip would be placed so it stood upright just behind an office door that was almost completely closed.  If the investigator found that the paper clip was not in the same position when he partially opens the door the next day or after a weekend he would know someone went into the room.

Why a paper-clip for these exercises?  Because a paper-clip is not likely to be noticed and it's as simple as that.  You can also put a paper-clip between pages of a checkbook or a diary or a phone book.  You can place it on top of a computer keyboard or on the seat of an office chair.  That paper-clip can tell you a lot.
