The purpose of law-enforcement bodies is to serve and protect people in accordance with laws. At the same time, misconduct or unscrupulous practices by law-enforcement officers who exceed their authority lead to the emergence of conflict situations between police officers and civilians. There are also disputed situations between law officers of police and militia that tend to occur after reorganization of militia and creation of new police forces. Another pressing issue is the conflicts between entrepreneurs and different government bodies.
Business entities often face issues with public authorities, including initiation of criminal cases for different reasons, one of them being poor expertise in law. It is not uncommon that people get apprehended for administrative violations, which is considered to be an illegal action, unless a judicial decree has been issued. Furthermore, arrests, detentions, body search or interrogations can be conducted with violation of applicable law.
The issues mentioned above are successfully resolved by special companies, for example, BJS Detective Agency. These are privately-owned companies that conduct their own independent investigation and help settle problems that involve high-profile government bodies (e.g., ministries), police problems and security service problems. Employing services of legal firms, one can make oneself safe from many legal issues, including an illegal termination of criminal proceedings.
Pretrial investigation is aimed at inquiring into the truth of the matter prior to court trial, and it can be conducted by investigative bodies only, particularly, by a plainclothes investigator.
An investigator works at investigation authorities and performs the following duties:
In case of investigative mistakes, an innocent person might be punished while a guilty man might escape punishment.
A special investigative agent is a criminal investigator whose tasks include evidence collection, interviews and some other techniques that are similar to those employed by an investigator. An investigator is involved in the analysis of crime-related logic chains, studies evidence collected on the crime scene by special agents, and tries to understand the motives of crime. Special agents are field workers who collect evidence on a crime scene. A detective is an expert who deals with private investigations, collects evidence, unravels criminals cases and submits them to court.
Legal firms and detective agencies provide private detective services. A private detective is often a lawyer or ex-investigator with in-depth knowledge and valuable expertise in forensic science, and is entitled to investigate criminal cases, collect evidence, search for witnesses and take part in court sessions.
A private detective has some limitations, as compared with an investigator, for example, no right to: carry a handgun, utilize eavesdropping equipment and summon the suspected for questioning. The flipside is a private detective is free of official duties and is thus able to conduct independent investigation or even opt out of any given job if having ‘personal animus’ toward his client.
