Investigators will use different methods to find the information they’re looking for, like police and fire reports. These typically include potential witnesses’ names and addresses. The next step is to interview these witnesses, get their statements, and have them sign it so that it’s binding. Investigators will canvas the area where the incident occurred to locate anyone else who may have seen anything important related to the occurrence.
If witnesses are difficult to find, private investigators will use a variety of people search methods, including address searches, phone searches, DMV record searches and real property searches. Professional private detectives have access to vast amounts of public records and specialized trade-only databases which can locate almost anyone anywhere. Sometimes locating a witness for a case and taking his or her statement is a straightforward process.
