5 benefits Manchester businesses can expect from hiring a private investigator

If you are looking to hire a private investigator in Manchester or the surrounding area, then you may wonder what benefits hiring a local private investigator can offer your business. 

With an increase in private investigations over the past few years, especially in big-city areas such as Manchester, the security and intelligence sector has adapted to modern techniques and technology, with private detectives and private investigators becoming highly skilled and highly trained, with most having former backgrounds with the police, military, corporate or intelligence services. Training that is now being supported and reinforced with new standards and industry accreditations.

There are numerous reasons why businesses may want to hire a private detective in Manchester, perhaps you are concerned about a new employee and want to do a thorough background check, including for any possibility of corporate espionage, or want to check how many people are living at a property. However, as a corporate hub, Manchester businesses are predominantly using private detectives to protect corporate assets and investigate any data breaches or fraud. 

Private detectives can conduct investigations for a wide range of reasons and more importantly, provide your business with evidence and statements that can be used for general purposes, such as in a workplace investigation for example, or evidence that can be admissible in court if you need to take further action. 

As evidence can only be used if it has been obtained legally, it is vitally important for you to put your trust in a private investigation firm in Manchester that can get you the results in a legal and ethical manner, whilst conducting themselves and their operation with the highest of standards in order to produce quality, effective results. This is considered best practice, especially regarding corporate or commercial investigations.

We are a highly regarded, professionally accredited Private Investigation Firm with offices and personnel in Manchester that provides evidence to court admissible standards in all cases.

  1. Local Knowledge

Although there are several things’ clients require when looking for a private detective, such as trust, expertise and of course, previous results, it is also wise to consider location. This specialist knowledge of the location where your investigation is most likely to be based, or conducted, is vital when choosing a private detective. You may find a great private detective in Leeds for example, but not only will you likely incur extra costs due to travel, but there isn’t the local knowledge of Manchester that can be important when conducting an investigation and trying to obtain the evidence that you need.

  • Static Surveillance: Static surveillance is when our private detectives will covertly monitor a particular location of interest. This may be a house, a company or a car park and may require constant, 24hour monitoring or just at specific times, however, we will provide a full report of the location in question, including photos, videos, vehicle details and timings.

  • GPS Vehicle Tracking: Private investigators are legally allowed to track vehicles using state of the art GPS tracking devices if the owner of a vehicle, or fleet of vehicles, has consented to the tracking of those vehicles using GPS technology. This allows Private Investigators to gather data and surveillance footage in cases of suspected vehicle misuse, moonlighting, and corporate sabotage, giving their client the data needed to prove wrongdoing in a court of law.  
  • Counter Surveillance: Counter surveillance is exceedingly useful from a corporate perspective, helping to identify espionage, cyber hacking, or data breaches from a technological point of view. Our team can work with you to help detect unlawful monitoring. Whether it is hidden cameras, voice recorders or covert tracking, we will gain evidence of the perpetrators to help you put a stop to it.
