Be Your Own Detective

Everyone knows that most of the information you want is available online, right? So why is it so hard to find certain people, family, friends, and information you need? Maybe it’s because the average person doesn’t know where to look. Barry Dunn does know, though. With more than 20 years’ experience in police work and investigations, and a resume that includes work as an online investigator/researcher and work as an international police advisor, Barry knows more than most about how to find the people, places, and information you need.

Be Your Own Detective – Why You Should Go

The name says it all. Go to Barry’s Be Your Own Detective Blog to find the resources and tools that give you access to people and information. Barry offers regular posts with pearls of wisdom, gained from experience, to help you locate long lost friends and family, classmates, and information about criminals and offenders living and working with or near you. With his background in law enforcement, Barry can also offer some advice about the right and wrong and responsible uses of his information and resources (although, understandably, he does have to draw a line and enter a disclaimer for his own protection).

In addition to informational posts Barry also has links to his Squidoo Lens, useful sites, and his own articles and a directory of free public search resources that he compiled himself. All that, and Barry still finds time for interesting stories from the trade and for a few blonde jokes, too.

Summing Up Be Your Own Detective

We know most of the information we want is out there, but finding it is another matter entirely. We have all seen myriad “resources” which promise to perform, but it’s tough to know what to trust and what not to, what to pay for and what paid services to trust. Be Your Own Detective helps to sort all of that out. With Barry’s help, now we little people have the right tools to reconnect and protect our own personal interests, thanks to an investigator with the generosity to share his time and knowledge.

    This is a great blog with some great information. I am glad that is not a field I have gone into. Barry is not only a great detective and blogger – but one heck of a guy!

    great Job!!!


  2. Cat Says:

    Thanks for reviewing a great site. I’m a law enforcement professional too, and I continue to be surprised that more people don’t take advantage of personal safety information and services widely available to them. Dugg in hopes of reaching someone who needs this service and doesn’t know where to find it yet.

    I love Barry’s blog. I’ve used some tools on BeYourOwnDetactive to backwards trace annoying callers by their “annoymous” number. Well written posts and cool tools! Be there or be square! :)

  4. Barry Says:

    Wow! Thanks for a great review! I have seen some of my friend’s blogs reviewed here. Your review is very well done – I may have to use it somewhere – with credits of course!

    Thank you Mary Ward.

  5. Mary Ward Says:

    @ All-agreed! Thanks for the support!

    @ Cat- You are welcome. I know personally the reason I don’t take more advantage is that these things can get confusing and costly. And for the average guy or girl, it’s tough to know which paid services are for real and not just gimics (or worse). A lot of us have an idea that there is more free info available to us, but wouldn’t know where to start! It is so much better to have someone in the know to tell you how and where to go, without being taken.

    @ Barry–feel free! Happy to help! And…you’re welcome, too.

    In fact, Barry, you’ve already helped! The same day I wrote your review my husband’s cousin, a small business owner, had troubles with an employee nailed for driving on a suspended license. So I passed off your links so that they could learn more about their rights, responsibilities, and finding the info they need to protect themselves.

    I am a regular reader of Barry’s blog and love it! Great write up!!

  7. Mary Ward Says:

    Thanks Heidi! Barry’s my new go-to guy when I need to figure out how to access something from the comfort of my husband’s recliner :)

  8. PublicRecordsGuy Says:

    Wow, another PI like myself blogging about the industry. I think the site is nice, but the links page could use a slight revamp for organization purposes.

  9. Mary Ward Says:

    @ Public Records–Thanks for visiting.

    I can tolerate a little less-than-optimal organization when there is so much good, free, useful information to be had in trade. For people like me who don’t have the level of knowledge that a guy like you in the business does, it’s a relief just to find a trustworthy resource. Imagine from my perspective how hard it is to know who to trust to get vital and potentially life-protecting information like what you and Barry are putting put there!

    Does this mean I can now get rid of those tele marketing calls from India? :D
