About Vance Investigations

Vance Investigations, LLC is owned and operated by Richard A. “Dick” Vance. Dick retired from the Charleston (SC) Police Department in 2004 with 24 years of service. As a lieutenant in charge of the Narcotics Division, he worked closely with federal, state, local law enforcement agencies, and community leaders. As commander of the Narcotics Division, Dick supervised and participated in over 1000 investigations and raids.

Prior to his assignment to the Narcotics Division, he was the supervisor of the Charleston Police Department’s stakeout and surveillance team. During this time, Dick worked on cases ranging from internal theft to the apprehension of violent criminals.

In addition to attending numerous schools on physical and electronic surveillance, interviewing techniques, courtroom testimony and trial preparation, Dick holds a master’s degree in criminal justice from the University of South Carolina.

Dick Vance's diverse experience in investigations and detective work is impressive and will be sure to provide quality, confidential results.  Since opening Vance Investigations in 2004, Dick has worked on over 500 cases involving adultery, child custody, workers comp surveillances, and cases involving criminal and civil litigation.

In 2007, Cindy Vance joined Vance Investigations as a licensed private investigator.  In addition to adding a female's touch to the company, she is quite valuable in surveillance cases where a male investigator might be out of place.
