Since the publication of the first edition many new certification programs have begun in private and community colleges, including a course designed by the author for Boston University and a specialty certification by the U.S. Association for Professional Investigators. Reflecting the surge in interest into the investigative field, this second edition of the bestselling Practical Handbook for Private Investigators contains more than 20 percent new material and has been adopted as required material in several new certification programs.

A highly useful reference, the Practical Handbook for Professional Investigators, Second Edition describes the range of investigations for which a professional investigator's services might be required such as criminal investigations, fraud detection and investigation, surveillance, arson and insurance, skip tracing, and missing persons.

Packed with case studies and examples drawn from the author's 33 years of experience, this handy resource covers everything from how to set up, market, and run an agency to the ethics of confidentiality and conflict of interest. It includes sections on how to get licensed, how to use various lo- and high-tech investigative tools including the internet, and how to take statements and implement effective interview and interrogation tactics by the non-law enforcement professional.

New information in the second edition includes an updated and revised job description, realistic earning capabilities, and future outlook for the profession; new case studies involving legal investigatory practices and how to navigate the most recent privacy legislation; additional advice on case file management with examples of new paperwork and updated forms; and increased information on fraud and domestic cases, as well as the component method of criminal defense investigations.

Designed as an up-to-date, nuts-and-bolts learning tool for students and as a day-to-day reference resource for the investigative professional of any type or level of experience, the Practical Handbook for Professional Investigators, Second Edition provides an unparalleled guide to the ins and outs of the world of today's private investigator.
