ServicesPrivate Investigators

When searching for Private Investigation Support, it's important to seek specialists that are trained, equipped and experienced in specific areas. To reach a high standard, Private Eye divides its broad portfolio of frequently-requested services in to three divisions.

  • Well-informed Documentation Researchers utilise resources and contacts to trace people for legal organisations or for private individuals. Looking into people's backgrounds for businesses, whether pre- or post-employment, and also a team of accredited genealogists are able to help with family history, probate issues and so forth. These are our Research, Checks and Tracing people.

  • There are some typically-sensitive issues which Detective Agencies are well-known for dealing with and our dedicated team will tend to these enquiries sympathetically. You can count on them to perservere with your case in a professional and discreet manner, and to yield results. Relationship Investigation deals with these kinds of challenges.

  • These days, in this era of cheap spying electronics, it doesn't take a professional to mount a sophisticated surveillance campaign. If you have any grounds to suspect that your privacy is being compromised, whether in the home or office or vehicle, then no less than a regularly-retrained TSCM expert with the latest equipment will do. There's nothing worse than hiring the wrong people with cheap gear, who report a false-negative. Technical Countermeasures know all the tricks; give them a call on 0800 410 1066. There's never a price on Peace of Mind but you might find it surprisingly affordable.
