Criminal investigations:

There are many kinds of criminal investigations, including commercial, fraud, rape, sexual crimes, theft, kidnapping, assault, homicide to name only a few. Although it is the SAPS’s primary function to investigate these crimes, a growing awareness of the problems only relying on this method has forced many people to seek independent investigations. It is public knowledge that the Police services are so overwhelmed with crime that not all criminal investigations get the resources they need. After initial investigation, the Police will hunt for a criminal for a while and then designate a case “cold.” By obtaining the services of a private investigator who is not only exclusively dedicated to solving a case, but he or she is often not bound by the limitations of resources and jurisdiction that a law enforcement agency must contend with.
