Local Sacramento Private Investigator
Experienced. Trusted. Local in Sacramento.

Western Investigations is a Sacramento Private Investigation firm specializing in Surveillance, Background Checks, Locates and all aspects of Family Law Investigations. Our agency was founded by Patrick R. Schneemann who has been working as a Private Investigator Sacramento for nearly 20 years.

Our investigators are familiar with the surrounding neighborhoods, business districts and rural areas. It takes a special breed of surveillance investigator to handle cases in Palm Springs, Ca. As a Local Private Investigator, we know what it’s like to sit long hours in a surveillance vehicle waiting for the subject to get active. We are patient, professional and ethical.

As you consider hiring a Sacramento Private Investigator, it’s important that you take several factors into consideration:

  1. Experience – Does the Private Investigator have the experience to handle your case? Is the Private Investigator Licensed with the State of California?
  2. Listening – Does the Private Investigator listen to you explain the circumstances of your case and understand your case objective?
  3. Clear Strategy – Does the Private Investigator provide you with a clear, easy to understand strategy for accomplishing your objectives?
  4. Pricing – Is the investigator’s rate competitive? When hiring a Private Investigator in Sacramento, you can expect to pay between $85 - $135 per hr. Western Investigations Charges at the low end of that range.
  5. Realistic – Does the Sacramento Private Investigator give you the “pros” and “cons” of implementing the Investigative Strategy?
  6. Trust Your Gut – It’s ok to take into consideration how you feel about the Private Investigator you’re considering hiring. How does the Private Investigator come across on the phone. Does the P.I. over promise?
What Sets Us Apart As a Sacramento Private Investigator

As a Sacramento Private Investigation Firm, Western Investigations is professional, ethical, competent, and motivated. These are the attributes that set us apart as a Private Investigator in Sacramento. When a potential client calls our office for a free consultation, they will find that we take the time to listen to them describe the specific circumstances of their case and their objectives. Once we are confident that we thoroughly understand what we are dealing with, we offer our clients a clear strategy for accomplishing their objective and at the same time, we lay at the challenges with the case so the client will have realistic expectations. We do not tell our customers simply what they want to hear in order to gain their business.

Western investigations is ethical and honest. It’s that simple. We do make mistakes. This is not an easy business. Any Private Investigator in Sacramento that believes they never make a mistake is someone you want to steer clear of. What sets us apart, however, is how we deal with mistakes. If we lose our subject on the freeway, we communicate with our client. If we are unable to obtain video due to a suspicious neighbor or passerby, we communicate with our client. If there is any delay in getting a report out the door, we communicate with our client. We are honest and upfront with our clients and we take responsibility for what goes on during the surveillance assignment.

As a Sacramento Private Investigator, Western Investigations is competent. Our owner, Patrick R. Schneemann has been a Private Investigator in Sacramento for almost 20 years. We have faced all the challenges and hurdles associated with all kinds of cases. We know how to obtain video in extremely challenging and difficult conditions. Our office has the tools, equipment, and experience necessary to get the job done. The quality of our film will demonstrates our experience. Our ability to conduct surveillance and blend in is a reflection of our competence.

Over the past 20 years I have been able to work with many different Sacramento Private Investigators. I’ve leaned that every investigator brings some strengths and weaknesses to the table. I’ve also learned two attributes when hiring a private investigator. Those two attributes are: Experience & Motivation. It’s rare that you find these two qualities in on Private Investigator. But that’s who we hire here at Western Investigations. Our surveillance investigators are experienced and they stay highly motivated. They utilize their experience and stay motivated so we can offer our clients something special.

To be an effective Sacramento Private Investigator, all of these attributes are necessary. At Western Investigations we are different because we put these 4 attributes together in order to offer our clients the best possible service.
