History

Founded by Mike Orchard in 2009, Beacon International Group Inc. d/b/a Beacon Investigative Solutions represents the culmination of nearly 30 years of civil, criminal, corporate, and private investigation experience.

The majority of Beacon’s lead investigators have prior experience in local, state, or federal law enforcement positions, followed by extensive experience in investigative work within corporate, insurance, or litigation cases. Many of our investigators are former FBI Special Agents that now work for us in the private sector, so you can trust that our private investigators are among the most experienced in the business.

Beacon is currently licensed and/or has the authority to conduct business in more than 40 States plus the District of Columbia as a private investigative company. Beacon is one of the few investigative firms with truly a national footprint. Our mission is to provide accurate, relevant and timely investigative support to our clients.
