has been a private investigator for over a decade and three years ago she and her partner Danny Boice decided to switch from solo operations to working with industry leader Trustify. This is a common trend which we are seeing in the private investigation sector and there are now many who have moved from autonomous operations, to working with the company. To understand more about why so many are looking to Trustify, both clients and private investigators, we spoke to Jennifer Mellon about why she thought that Trustify was the best idea. Let’s review what she had to say.
Something which Jennifer always loathed were the perceptions of a private investigator that other people had. The general notion this world, thanks to the way it is represented on the big screen and television, is that private investigators are shady men and women who lurk in the darkness and in backchannels, sailing close to the rule of law. This is not the case at all of course and the role of a private investigator is in fact one of great professionalism. Trustify are helping to change the narrative and that is why Jennifer wanted to be a part of it.
In the past there were many charlatans in the world of private investigation who would hide fees, charge exorbitant prices and generally do what they could to gain as much money as possible. The result of this was clients who didn’t trust PIs and therefore wanted to pay as little as possible, or in some cases not pay at all. Because of the way that Trustify go about their business however, with clear and transparent pricing which is reasonable but above the industry standard, clients only pay what they see and private investigators earn exactly what they should, another reason why the likes of Danny Boice and Jennifer Mellon have looked to this company.
Getting clients was becoming more difficult for people like Jennifer and she tells us that there were some spells where she would have no work. Since joining up with Trustify however there is a steady flow of work which is always coming in which means that there is always something to do. Furthermore she speaks about how there are always colleagues who she can help out when work is light. Private investigators do work autonomously but having someone on hand to get the clients is something that greatly helps them in their careers.
Jennifer tells us that there are some outstanding investigators within Trustify and that inspires her to work harder and be better in order to beat off the competition. This healthy competition enables Jennifer to be a better private investigator and she says that she has improved drastically since first joining up with the team. We all need someone to help us be a better version of ourselves and this is just what Jennifer has found since working with Trustify.
