Default What resources do private investigators use??

This isn't really a bad idea but I figure this question is best suited for this forum anyways. What resources do private investigators use when they want to find various types of information on a person?

Yeah they are usually ex-cops or close relatives of cops.

So they use whatever resources the police have access to.

There are some sites that (claim to) provide criminal history on people for a fee. I'd research the site first to see if they are reliable.
Also, sometimes they sit and watch a person's movements, look in the trash for info on the person, etc.

If the subject is of real interest, and the person/agency etc hiring the PI has the cash to pay for it, they could bug the place that the subject lives. (although without a court order, it would be illegal)

Like the last two posts said, cop friends are also a possibility, and likely.

A private detective placed a tracking device on my friend's car and was following him around. The private detective was a former FBI agent and was working with another police detective on a theft case.

My friend looked up the private detective's name and found his name in a shit load of BIG cases from when he was a FBI agent. Crazy shit.

I'm pretty sure that is illegal lol. Private detectives don't have police authority correct? They cannot do this.

In Canada the name Private Investigator only sounds cool, when in reality it's nothing like you think. Of course you hear the term and your mind immediately snaps to a guy with sunglasses and a suit, driving a black SUV with tinted windows, and an earpiece.

Actually you would be wrong, because Private Investigators have as much rights and privileges as you or I do. Essentially all a PI does is follow around the person (which is legal) and tries to find any information on what they are doing or where they are going.

A PI is not as cool as you think, and the PIs that I have known are usually socially awkward weirdos with shitty cars. That way, when they're following someone around, they look inconspicuous thanks to the rusted out body and shitty sponsor stickers in the windows.

Their resources: Anything that you can get. They have no special privileges or secret access to any databases. Whatever information a PI can find on someone, you can find it too. The only difference being thousands of dollars service charge.

i know in the states a licensed PI has access to certain info DBs that private civilians don't have. also the PIs license they have is the same license issued to a bounty hunter. they can access criminal records(the proper ones, not those bs online things), credit reports and loan applications, utility bills and social security DBs, to name a few. i used to have a fake fb as someone who was a PI working for a law firm in buffalo NY. so i did some research on this for the character background.
