Deborah Aylward

Private Investigator (Retired)

Over a 20-year career,  Deborah mentored many entry-level investigators, training them to be the best, most professional investigators they could be. She also encouraged many mentees to go on and open their own detective agencies.

Specialized in domestic relations investigations, Deborah primarily provided surveillance services to  clients.

An industry leader, Deborah was appointed to a senior member position of a regulatory agency advisory board. She co-authored a survey for an independent study of the private investigator occupation commissioned by regulators. She was president of a statewide PI association.

In her spare time, she founded the first charitable non-profit comprised of almost 100 volunteer investigators nationwide, providing pro-bono assistance to parents of abducted children, with a 98% success rate. Author of "The Guide to Criminal Offender Public Records', Deborah was also featured on a Discovery Channel documentary "The Search for Missing Persons".

Mentees often say they hear Deborah's good advice echoing in their heads when out in the field and needing to make split second decisions. She's helped many investigators break-in, stay-in and succeed.
