About Rugen Team Investigations

Founded by Ronald Rugen, LPI, Rugen Team Investigations, LLC, is the Missouri licensed, full-time private investigator more local attorneys choose. Mr. Rugen attends conferences each year throughout the country to not only keep up with new techniques, but also networks with other investigators across the country who can supplement RTI’s services.

Mr. Rugen brings his experience as a radio news director and news reporter, as well as videographic skills from his work and education in television to assist his clients in fact gathering. However, his commitment is to only acquire information that is admissible in court and is legal. If any other private investigator will consent to conducting illegal activity in your investigation, he or she risks getting themselves and the client into trouble.

While RTI has its areas of specialization, we also handle general investigations. If there is an area we cannot assist you in, we will find someone who can.

There are other private investigators in the area that are cheaper, but they know what they are worth. With RTI’s full time commitment and working with more local attorneys than any other private investigator, you can feel confident you have the best private investigative services available to you.

Ron Rugen earned his B.S. Degree from the University of Central Missouri in just over three years in 1982. Mr. Rugen covered the Missouri Capitol as reporter/anchor of KLIK/Y107 (Jefferson City, MO), later news director of KRMS/KY94 at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks, as well as broadcasting for the Missouri Farm Bureau radio network, KMOS-TV (Sedalia, MO), KCMW-FM and KOKO-AM (both Warrensburg, MO). Mr. Rugen has also been heard on the ABC Radio Network, AP Radio, Missourinet, and NPR. While a broadcast journalist, he fired questions at such newsmakers as then-Vice President George H.W. Bush, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Bob Barker, Senators John Glenn, Kit Bond, Thomas Eagleton, and Gary Hart, and musical groups Alabama, Oak Ridge Boys, and Statler Brothers.

A lifelong Missouri resident, Mr. Rugen has seven years experience in Missouri state government and nine years in Federal government. Mr. Rugen feels his diverse background, living in the city for nearly 30 years, but raised on a Mid-Missouri farm, helps him relate to any person or environment he is working with. He has also served as state collections manager of 21 branch offices of a six-state finance company.

“I personally have met with Mr. Rugen and feel confident that he will take care of his clients and their needs. I have had dealing with PI’s all over the world and feel that Mr. Rugen is a professional PI who can definitely assist his clients.”
