Hiring a Private Investigator?
Is the Investigator experienced?
Private Investigation is a completely unlicensed profession as it stands, however there are wheels are in motion to create a governing body that will issue licenses once a company/private investigator has proved their ability. This doesn’t help you now though.
We recommend you ask your chosen private investigator the following questions:
1. What professional training and experience do you have?
There are roughly 10,000 investigators within the UK, some are former military and police trained, others are either self-trained or completed a civilian surveillance course.
Titan Private Investigation only employs highly experienced former Police Officers or Security Service personnel who have received strenuous government surveillance and investigation training and perfected their field craft operationally.
2. Is the Investigator local?
Many detective agencies appear to offer national coverage. 0800 and 0845 numbers may offer you free or local rate calls but they can be used to mask their actual location. These companies generally charge a premium and sub contract the work to local companies.
Visit their website and look for a physical address or check where the domain name is registered to.
Titan Private Investigation are based in Derby City Centre on Pride Park and cover Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and the East Midlands predominantly, however we frequently travel as far south as London and the Scottish boarders in the north. We only use our own trusted, highly trained and experienced operatives.
3. Is the Private Investigator vetted?
Ask your Investigator of choice about their professional affiliations and memberships. The industry has many, however The Association of British Investigators (ABI) is the one to look out for in our opinion.
The ABI have a thorough membership vetting process which checks criminal history, referees, competence, previous training and experience, insurances and finally, interviewed by a panel.
Titan Private Investigation is a full member of ABI, UKPIN (UK Private Investigator Network), WAPI (World Association of Private Investigators) and ISO9001 Quality Management accredited. All of our operatives have signed and abide by a confidentiality agreement, are regularly checked for criminal records and registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (Data Protection).
4. Does the Investigator have insurances in place?
Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurances are part and parcel of running a legitimate and credible investigation business.
