Task Force Investigations

Department of Education

The Task Force Investigations, Department of Education is available to any interested person wishing to develop or enhance their knowledge and skills in the investigative field. The Department of Education authors their own training and technical manuals, as well as sources effective tools and texts from other professionals, worldwide. It's our belief, an educational institution who claims to know everything, or claims to be the best, without regard to outside excellence, has failed at the outset of their educational mission. That's why we encourage authors to contact us as we continue to search for updated text books and training materials.

The Task Force Investigations, Department of Education develops their materials from inhouse case studies and technique reviews, as well as case studies of court proceedings we're not a party to. In person Court Case studies are an integrated part of some of our training and education programs.  Our Training & Certification alongside your Court Case Studies, and Paid Internship of the International Private Investigators Union, you'll not only emerge from your studies well informed and educated, but paid and experienced.

As an Executive Agency of the International Private Investigators Union, we're held to a Superior Code of Ethics and Conduct, the likes of which we have not found a comparison. As both Task Force Investigations and Specialized Service Management have adopted this Code of Ethics and Conduct, all of our agents, corporate officers, and students are required to accept and abide by the same.
