Corporate • Government • Individuals


Paloma Investigative Services was founded by Troy Castillo. Troy is a 29 year veteran (retired) of the Palm Springs Police Department, California and a 4 year veteran of the United States Air Force. He retired from the United States Air Force Reserves after 24 years of service. While at the Palm Springs Police Department, nearly 1/3rd of his career was as a Detective, handling violent crimes such as Homicides, Domestic Violence, Adult Sex Crimes, Child Abuse, Elder Abuse, Missing Persons and Fraud.

Troy was the President of the Desert Investigators Association for over 10 years. The DIA is a networking group of over 20 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. It was here that Troy forged many bonds, developed many resources with his DIA colleagues and solved some of the most heinous crimes. By bringing his many years of investigative experience and resources over to Troy's company, Paloma Investigative Services has become the leader in investigative services.

Troy has an Associates Degree in Administration of Justice from College of the Desert in Palm Desert, California and a Bachelors Degree in Workforce Education and Development from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. He is a former Adjunct Faculty Instructor at College of the Desert and taught courses to police academy recruits such as Laws of Arrest, Crimes in Progress, Investigative Report Writing and Patrol Procedures. He is a graduate of the Robert Presley Institute of Criminal Investigations with a specialty in Homicide and Domestic Violence investigations.
