Sunset Blvd. Investigations, Inc. (SBI) is a privately owned and licensed LA private investigation firm based in downtown Los Angeles. SBI’s founders, Steve and Randy, come from diverse backgrounds of expertise that contribute to their effectiveness as private investigators. Combining their extensive history, they have over 80 years of experience, with half of that time spent as law enforcement officers.

Upon retirement from Law Enforcement, both had achieved the designated rank of Detective, Steve with the Los Angeles Police Department and Randy at the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. During their tenure, they worked on a wide array of criminal investigations, which equipped them with the tools and knowledge essential to be effective private investigators for their clients today.

Their backgrounds include the preparation of detailed investigative reports; collection, processing and preserving of evidence; preparation and execution of search warrant affidavits; filing of criminal cases with Offices of the District Attorney and United States Attorney; providing deposition testimony; providing testimony in Grand Jury proceeding; and the delivery of courtroom testimony in Federal, Superior and Municipal Courts.

“When I was writing an article for GQ about what it was like to go through the vetting process that potential U.S. Vice Presidential candidates are put through, my vetter needed an investigator to rummage through my life and look for any skeletons in my closet. The vetter couldn’t have picked a more thorough investigator than Steve, who did just a great job. And I know that if I ever need to hire an investigator for anything, Steve will be the first one I call.”

Jason Zengerle, GQ Magazine's Political Correspondent, Contributing Writer For The New York Times Magazine & Client

“Steve Polak is a terrific private investigator who I’ve used many times. He can perform any investigative task, from undercover work, to surveillance, to gathering financial, background or factual information, to participating in legal strategy, and to providing credible and effective testimony. His wealth of experience in a variety of situations allows him to tailor his approach to the needs of the case. Steve has always provided timely, helpful and cost-efficient assistance to the matter at hand. I give him the highest recommendation possible.”
