McMahon & Associates Private Investigators
Private Detectives



MCMAHON is please to announce our affiliation with S2 Online Academy. Distance learning courses are offered by Investigation Education Consultants, Inc. in partnership with the S2 Safety & Intelligence Institute. These courses are specifically geared for the busy working professional who doesn't have the time to travel or the time to sit in a classroom all day. For budget-conscious organizations, our online courses also offer a cost-effective way to train personnel without incurring travel expenses or lost productivity due to training time.

All of our distance learning courses are presented through the S2 Online Academy's virtual classroom system. While other online training systems limit the learning experience to reading course material and listening to audio lectures, the S2 virtual classroom system uses Macromedia Flash-driven slides and streaming video of mastered instructor presentations to provide a dynamic learning environment unequaled by anything short of a live classroom.

We look forward to offering a wide array of Investigative related online courses in the very near future. is a provider of news, commentary, help, how-to and perspective on the latest trends in the investigative field from seasoned and recognized experts. Rory McMahon hosts and produces many of the shows, but as the network expands new hosts and participants will be added. All of our shows are free. GIMG is supported by advertising and listener donations. We limit the number of ads on each show, and we only accept advertising from companies whose products or services benefit our audience.

As we grow so too will our content and listings. Our live stream lets you watch and listen to our shows being produced, along with other incidental coverage of regulator, legislative issues and breaking news.  We will offer audio files for every show produced so you can download it and listen to it on the go.
