Getting to the bottom of it all

It’s not all cloak and dagger

The work of a private investigator has many connotations. It may be that you’re only aware of their work through crime dramas, but the reality is that many situations in a person’s life can be helped by a private investigator.

Do you want to carry out a background check on a potential new employee? Have you begun to form a relationship with someone online, and are concerned they may not be who they say they are? Private investigators search tirelessly for the truth. Their goal is to give you that much-needed peace of mind.

Keeping it under wraps

Confidentiality and discretion are fundamental to being a private investigator. Not only are you hiring someone to carry out a service, but you’re also trusting them with a sensitive situation. Therefore, you’ll want to be thorough in verifying their background and credentials.

Many private investigators have experience in the police or the armed forces. This means they're often experts in surveillance and forensics, but also know how to handle people. Your private investigator should belong to an approved industry association. This could be the Association of British Investigators, or the Security Industry Authority.

Putting the pieces together

Private investigators specialise in locating people. This doesn’t just mean people who’ve suddenly ‘disappeared’. You may want to reach out to an ex-partner or family member you’ve lost touch with. Someone may owe you a debt, but you find yourself unable to reach them.

We live in a day and age when people constantly create new information about themselves. A lot of this is publicly available, such as voting records or social media profiles. CCTV is also now a routine part of modern life. A private investigator will put the pieces together to form credible lines of inquiry.

What motivates you in your work as a private investigator?

Helping people is at the core of what we do. No one wants to feel as though they can’t trust someone they’re close to. However, people deserve to know the truth. I’ve always been an inquisitive person. Becoming a private investigator means I get to be the ultimate problem-solver. I’ve been in this industry for several years, but I still get a rush every time I solve a case.

How much does a private investigator cost?

We charge strictly based on the job. It could be an open-and-shut case, other times the job goes deeper than we’d anticipated. Our work is thorough and therefore time-consuming. That being said, we measure our work based on what we’ve achieved. Our goal is always to offer a satisfactory conclusion for our client.

Are there legal issues with hiring a private investigator?

We want to address the taboo associated with private investigation. For us to do this, we work in close adherence to the law. Our team will never impersonate a law enforcement official, or tap someone’s phone without permission. A professional private investigator will always operate within the law, and with their client's full consent.
