Private Investigators

LocateMasters is headed up by one of the industry's top private investigators, Jeff Penrod. Mentored by professional law enforcement personnel, Jeff learned how to optimize his skills and apply them to achieving successful results in a broad range of people-locating applications—from criminal defense cases to asset repos to catching bail jumpers.

Jeff has established an outstanding track record, making a name for himself in Phoenix and surrounding areas. His is one of the highest rated private investigation firms in Arizona, which is why he frequently comes up at the top in search results against bigger agencies that have been around longer.

Jeff's team of former very experienced investigators use their unique and highly-specialized skills day in and day out to uncover the truth, get the facts their clients are looking for, and locate individuals who may or may not want to be located. They aren't reluctant to deal with anyone who can help them along the path to getting the job done.
