What is a private investigator?
We are professionals who will gather evidence to get to the bottom of your case. We specialise in a variety of industries, using our training and skills to gather information pertaining to your case.
It’s our job to help individuals, organisations and solicitors solve cases discreetly, quickly and professionally. Using tracking, surveillance and public records, we will discover the truth about your case and present you with the evidence you need to succeed.
Are private investigations legal?
Yes, all work we carry out is 100% legal. We only use sources and techniques that are available to us, including observation, social media and in-depth research, public records, GPS tracking and local resources.
The investigation sector in the UK is currently unregulated by the government. However, as members of the Association of British Investigators (ABI), we are proven to be reliable, reputable and good at what we do.
Are private investigations ethical?
We strictly follow the code of ethics and professional standards policy to ensure our investigations are fully ethical and would stand up in court. Honesty, integrity, responsibility, accountability, caution are amongst the values we regard highly at OpSec Solutions.
How do you get your information?
We will gather as much information as possible from you before setting out on our investigation. Using legal, public sources, as well as covert surveillance, we will get further information for your case.
We will never tamper with evidence, hack an individual’s phone, trespass, access restricted information or any other illegal activity that could jeopardise your case.
Do you keep my information confidential?
Our business is based on confidentiality, with our customers security and comfort being our main priority. You can rest assured that all your information will be kept 100% confidential from the first enquiry until we conclude your case.
We are registered with the International Commissioners Office (ICO), meaning you can trust us entirely to handle all your information safely and confidentially.
How much do you charge?
Our prices are based on your individual case, rather than a set rate. We will discuss your case in full before providing a free, no obligation quote to give you an idea of cost.
Or, book a free consultation with a member of our team to find out more about how we could help you with your case and to get to know our team and methods a little better.
Will the third party know I am investigating them?
No, we use techniques that allow us to remain 100% covert. In order to carry out our work successfully, we rely on the third party being unaware of our investigation as this could alter their behaviour. The only way the third party would ever know they were being investigated is if you told them!
However, if we observe an individual exhibiting illegal or dangerous behaviour, we will have to alert the necessary authorities to avoid any further damage. For example, if the third party was seen to be a dangerous driver or engaging in criminal activity, the authorities would have to be notified. We would not disclose the information of the investigation, including your details, so you can have peace of mind that your information is always confidential.
What information do you need to trace someone?
Of course, the level of information you can provide differs from case to case, but generally, we require:
- Full name
- Date of birth
- Any previous known addresses
We will consult with you to gain as much information as possible before starting to research your case. We will constantly keep you updated with your case and anything we discover, you’ll stay aware of.
What accreditations do you have?
We are fully accredited across the board, with International Commissioner’s Office (ICO) registration and memberships of Association of British Investigators (ABI), Fraud Advisory Panel (FAP) and UK Professional Investigators Network (UKPIN). Take a look at our full list of accreditations.
