Skip Tracing for Private Investigators7 min read
Using Skip Tracing for Private Investigations
Private investigators are individuals who locate, track and collect information on a person of interest. They can be hired by anyone for situations including but not limited to: Background checks, missing persons, divorce & alimony, child support & more.
Normally only people in the investigations industry use the word “Skip Trace”. The word is typically used by private investigators, bounty hunters, debt collectors or anyone else that is looking for an individual.
Some say the word “skip” relates to someone skipping town and the word trace refers to tracing or tracking down an individual. Only recently has the word tracing become used in relation to tracking down information on a person.
So if someone says they are a skip tracer it means that they locate difficult to find people. All private investigators should have this skill and some investigators do this better than others. And some people are easier to find than others. Bee Safe Security & Private Investigations out of Ohio uses skip tracing to locate people and information. Their elite team of private investigators say “Skip tracing is a vital tool that we use on nearly every investigation.”.
How do private investigators find people with skip tracing?
According to Bee Safe Security & Private Investigations, Skip tracing can sometimes be easy and many times it can be difficult. “Sometimes we have to locate people without them knowing and other times we can be transparent about locating someone.” “From my experience it can be much more difficult to locate people when it has to be done covertly.” Says Jeremy, Owner of Bee Safe.
Skip tracing is a tedious process just like many things in the investigation industry. The process begins by following the web for information that is has been published by public sources. That information can come from several sources including the following:
- Family Members
- Vehicle Information
- Property Records
- Criminal Records
- Court Records
- Public Records
- Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Youtube, Snapchat,
- Music.ly, etc..)
- Licensing (Professional, Business, any you can check)
- Online Searching (Google, Yahoo, Bing etc..)
Each one of these sources can lead an investigator in a direction which can lead them to either more information or the individual. Some people may have little to no records online, making it difficult to track them.
