Professional private detectives use their experience, training, and specialist knowledge alongside the advanced technology and equipment they have available to them to maximise the outcomes they are able to achieve through these tasks.

Examples of legally compliant activities our agents use every day to support investigation include covert surveillance, surveillance and tracing devices, personal record and database searches, social media searches, and covert enquiry with persons known to the subject to name but a few.
