When people are looking to make a career change, many will aspire to become private investigators. Today, there is a rapid growth in the industry making it lucrative for not only those who want to switch careers, but also for those who want to begin their career as a private eye.
According to the VR Franchise Showcase, the private investigator industry has grown dramatically over the last decade due to increasing social issues such as:
- Insurance fraud;
- Criminal defense investigation.
This is a competitive industry where those with experience in law enforcement, intelligence-related work, armed forces and other investigative work can be very successful.
The mass-production of low-cost recording devices has helped fuel new private investigator franchises. Although, a portion of private investigators are former police officers and attorneys, many have come from business and management backgrounds recently.
Franchisors for private investigator franchises provide comprehensive training and marketing on a local, regional and national level. Corporate support is also provided for those who become a private investigator franchise owner.
