Are private investigators legal?


Private investigation is a professional and legal practice in the UK.

There is legislation in place in the UK such as the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, the Human Rights Act 1998, The Data Protection Act 2018, GDPR and The Freedom of Information Act 2020 that govern private investigation and provide framework and guidance around this.

What can a private investigator legally do?

Private investigators have a wide range of options available to them in terms of legal activities they can undertake to support robust investigation and obtain the answers and proof you need.

Private detectives can make use of software and technology to perform data and record searches on a subject’s personal details and address, employment, financial and criminal past.

Covert surveillance, use of surveillance equipment and taking photographic evidence to support findings are all legal acts a professional private investigator can undertake.

Bug sweeping enables a private investigator to locate and remove any listening or surveillance devices located in a property, premises or vehicle and is an entirely legal and highly ethical activity.

Social media searches can be legitimately conducted and provide insight into a person’s world and network.

Private investigators can make enquiries within a subject’s personal and professional associations in a covert or discreet manner to gain further information about them and their background.

These are a few examples of the types of legitimate activity that will be used by a professional private detective to ensure an effective and accurate investigation for you.
