A private investigator’s life isn’t all stake-outs and snapping photos, often what comes before is finding the actual person. While normal people might think to first put their names through Google or one of the many sub-standard people search engines out there, they often turn up hundreds of people with the same name and wildly out-of-date information on all of them. When it comes to locating assets, a vehicle, or a person themselves, nothing is more effective than private investigator databases.
This database is one of the older private investigator database services that is still operational. As it is an older service, it has a wide array of information on people that is still kept up-to-date. With this service you can easily do a people search, look up court records, business records, asset searches for vehicles, and have access to criminal records. However, due to the sensitive nature of much of the information available, Tracers Info isn’t just for everyone. It requires you to send in an application, in which you must be employed as a private investigator or one of only a select few other areas of employment (law enforcement, media, lawyer, ect). You will also need to pay a monthly subscription fee.

TLOxp provides the standard services of a private investigator database by allowing you to track down people and vehicles with surprisingly little details about them. However, it has a few distinct benefits that set it apart from the others. For one, since it services a wide range of industries where not everyone is so computer-savvy, it has a user-friendly search layout. However, the real benefit of TLOxp is that it extremely accurate. Updated every three days, you can easily find updated addresses on people that just moved out of state only a few days after the fact. It also happens to have one of the most effective vehicle tracking searches of all the PI databases.
Like other databases, you need to apply and be able to pay either a subscription or flat fee. However, unlike other databases, it has a variety of flexible payment plans to fit the needs of your business.
What sets IRBsearch apart from the other older or user-friendly databases above? Well, it searches 34 billion records to help you find people and assets, but most databases do that to varying extent. However, the real benefit of choosing this service is that you can use it easily on your mobile device. This is great for a number of industries including private investigators that aren’t always within WiFi range on their laptop, but still need to track people down. The best PI is a mobile PI, after all.
