Technical Surveillance / Hidden camera

A primary reason why someone may hire a private technical investigator is to gather legal evidence in support of your position in civil investigations.

Installing a covert CCTV can provide accurate and true evidence. However, there are regulations and rules to follow to avoid costly consequences. DPA’s (Data Protection Act) domestic purposes exemption and Article 8 of The Human Rights Atc 1998 should be considered if you wish to install a covert CCTV.

We strongly recommend that you use a professional covert camera installer who can advise on the legalities of the investigation and carry out the covert surveillance without fear of breaking the law.

Background checks

You may want to have a person submit to a background investigation before hiring a new babysitter or nanny, or before making an investment.

There are automated background checks available via the internet, but that information is often incomplete or inaccurate, our private investigators can provide detailed and accurate information, a professional background check can ensure the safety of everyone involved.

Evidence gathered by a private technical investigator is completely legal and usually admissible in court as long as it has been amassed legally. Once we have gathered all the available evidence, we will present it in a comprehensive report that is admissible for use at courts and tribunal. We will also give testament to that evidence if necessary.

A common application is for civil investigations that require investigators to gather evidence for trials and hearings and can span a variety of cases, including domestic surveillance, workers compensation, asset searches, missing persons, and more.
