Today, one can find a large number of private detective agencies running all around the world. Private Detective agencies are in existence from the early 1800’s and they are still increasing in numbers. If we see, what has changed about the private detective agencies during all these years, then we would realize, that the first and foremost change, is in their “ working method”. The way they work, has drastically changed over all these years and if we think about, what has caused this change, the answer would be none other than.
Smart phones, tablets, smart watches, GPS, Bluetooth and social media are some of the new friends of private detectives and till today, this friend list goes on and on with the introduction of every new latest technological gadget in the market.
These technological gadgets are simply making the life of private detectives more and more easier. Those tasks which used to take around 2-3 days for completion, takes only a few hours now and those tasks which used to take a few hours gets completed in few minutes. All thanks goes to one and only “TECHNOLOGY”. Modern technology is slowly becoming a new side kick of today’s private detectives.
Let’s say, a private detective is hired by a company to do background verification on a prospective employee (say Mr. X). In 2019, for private investigation, he has a lot of options and technological benefits, to complete this case. If, he is investigating upon the work history of Mr. X, then he can easily find if the name of the company, mentioned in his bio- data under his work experience is genuine or fake by simply searching about the company through internet. He can even find the contact number/ email address of the company, from internet and enquire about the said person in a discreet manner. To judge the moral character of the said person, he can search via online public data bases. From this, he can know whether Mr. X was previously involved in a criminal activity or any such thing. He can also go through Mr. X’s social media accounts for further verification. Obviously, even after conducting a few online searches, he would still be needed to gather some more information physically, in order to properly complete this case. But, if we look into this situation, it cannot be ignored that technology has played a significant role in this case and with the help of technology; the private detective was able to successfully solve this case, while saving much of his time and energy. All over, it will take around 3-4 days or a week at maximum to successfully complete this case.
Now, if we consider the same situation with a little difference, let us see what happens.
So, in this situation, the same detective is given this similar case but there is a small difference, let us think that he is living in a different time period, where technology was not so advanced as it is now , say in 1940’s. Here, everything is required to be done in an old fashioned way, because as we know online world started becoming more familiar with people only from 1990’s. Obviously, he cannot solve it in the same way as he does now in 2019. So, how will he begin such a case?
To gather background information about this employee, he could send a telegram/telegraph or use a telephone and if he is still not able to establish any contact or get in touch with other people in order to gather information, then he would have to actually visit Mr. X’s school, colleges and previously worked places, inspect the physical records and verify each and every detail with the one available to him. None of these options, seems convenient or fast enough to get a job done. He will also be needed to discreetly contact those people who were associated with Mr. X, which will ultimately involve meeting them face to face and gathering their opinion about him. If he is going to meet those people, it is possible that some of them may not be available to him, for physical interaction. In this situation, it will take him longer time than expected to complete the case. It would take around 2-3 weeks or may be a month, for completion of the case, depending on the situation. It would also require a lot of travelling, boarding and lodging expenses etc.
Thus, from the above two examples, it is easier to understand, how technology has slowly became a crucial part in the life of detectives.
But, the above two situations also raises a question;
Has Technology replaced the need of human mind? Can detectives solve the cases by only depending on technology alone?
The answer for the above question will be No. Technology is just an aid to complete the task at a faster rate and in an efficient manner, but it can never replace the human mind. A systematic plan of investigation has to be drawn before the exercise, leads and clues have to be master-minded and monitored.
If the investigator is using modern technology to complete the case, he would still be required to use his intelligence, his wits and other tactics to finish a job. Technology is complementary and not a substitute to human intelligence. It has been rightly said that:-
"Technology changes the quality of life. Technology cannot replace human intelligence"
Therefore, it can be said that technology is just a sidekick or a friend to the detectives. A large part of the work requires his own presence of mind. Technology can just figure out, what is needed to be done, but the detective is the one, who will be needed to decide, how it is to be done.
If you take a look at the above stated examples carefully, you may notice that in the case, where modern technology is absent, detectives are still able to complete the cases successfully. Yes, they may take more time, but the point is they can find a solution to the problem, by using their intelligence and cleverness alone. This proves that human brain is so powerful that it can find a solution to every problem, even when the options to seek help are limited. Thus, I would like to conclude with a beautiful quote
"Technology can never replace the greatest minds, but if technology in the hands of greatest minds can result in something phenomenal & extraordinary"
