Security, Executive Protection and Private Investigations
When an individual’s privacy or security is compromised, it can have detrimental and far-reaching effects – not the least of which is peace of mind. Ranging from financial loss, to loss of personal property, or even identity theft, there are a number of unfortunate consequences that can arise from security threats.
As a result, security and executive protection remain popular areas of interest for Private Investigators. It’s significance and relevancy in the field has grown rapidly in recent days, largely due in part to global events that have left many questioning their own safety and security.
Differences Between Private Investigators and Law Enforcement
It’s important to keep in mind that Private Investigators differ from law enforcement. During many investigations or executive protection scenarios, a Private Investigator may need to remain in close contact with security and emergency responders. This could include local law enforcement, city officials and event planners.
Private Investigators must also be aware of the political and physical environment of the situation. By remaining abreast to the facts and changing factors in the surrounding environment, Private Investigators can play a key role in maintaining the overall safety and security of their client.
Growth Potential for Private Investigators
There’s significant growth potential in the field of security private investigations. It is estimated that 3,300 additional new Private Investigator jobs will become available in the next ten years and employment of Private Investigators is projected to grow 11 percent from 2012 to 2022, according to the United States Department of Labor.
