Private detectives in England

Private detectives have operated in England for hundreds of years. If you are in a position where the truth matters, private investigators are able to offer a vital service. When discretion and integrity matters, we can be trusted to uncover and document the truth for our clients.

The “bread and butter” of most detective agencies is personal surveillance. Personal surveillance typically involves following a subject, or monitoring their property/vehicle. During surveillance the subject might be followed in order to check and document their movements. A competent private detective will seek to capture high quality images or video as evidence of the subject’s activity.

Surveillance can be used in many different circumstances. If you are seeking to gather evidence of infidelity for divorce proceedings, or investigate a cheating partner for example, then surveillance would be the most appropriate course of action. However, surveillance can also be used to gather evidence of cohabitation, or to investigate the legitimacy of personal injury claims.

During personal surveillance the detective will typically seek to remain unnoticed and make no contact with the subject.

Private detectives are often called on to provide many other different services besides surveillance, including bug sweeps, installing GPS trackers, or serving court paperwork.

In order to secure the best results possible, please include any small details that could help us during the investigation.

Licensed private investigators in England

Our team has over 100 years combined experience of in-field investigation, with many of us receiving formal qualifications in our respective fields.
