Our services include but are not limited to:

Technical Surveillance / Covert CCTV

A primary reason why someone may hire a private technical investigator is to 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 conseguences. 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.

Domestic Investigations

Our private technical investigators provide information, records, and surveillance for issues that affect families like divorce, infidelity, drug abuse, physical or sexual abuse, child custody, from various sources as the internet, personal devices, covert camera surveillance, and more.

We have many years experience, from providing large scale security services in high profile companies to CCTV installations for private home owners. Whatever the size and specification of your needs, we will advise you on the best strategy to help you.


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.
