missing person investigator

Many investigatins involve verifying facts, such as place of employment, or obtaining confidential information. This might involve a phone call or a visit to the workplace. In other investigations, especially in missing person cases, the missing person investigator must interview people to learn as much as possible about someone's whereabouts. These interviews can be formal or informal. They sometimes turn unfriendly.

In many European countries and American states it is illegal to practise as an investigator without a licence. One American state even requires investigators to attend a course before selling their services. Above-board investigators in Britain have long called for compulsory licences. The government, with a distaste for any new regulation, has so far refused.

Licences would improve the seedy image of the profession. Like journalists, many investigators serve the public good. Missing person investigators trace missing persons. Other investigators weed out frauds. But also like journalists, their image is tarred by unscrupulous colleagues who serve nobody's good but their own.
