Former police officer Simon Henson now wants others to follow in his footsteps

Simon Henson Derby Telegraph Interview December 2017 | Titan Investigations

A former police officer turned private detective is launching an academy to teach wannabe investigators how to gather evidence on cheating partners and people on the fiddle.

Simon Henson, from Ripley, travels around the world as a private investigator helping companies expose dodgy employees and helping suspicious husbands and wives find out whether their partners really do have a bit on the side.

Mr Henson, who grew up in Duffield, was a counter-terror surveillance operative serving the East Midlands and was a police officer for Nottinghamshire police for more than 15 years.

A love of covert surveillance led him to set up Titan Investigations, headquartered on Pride Park.

Mr Henson said he started up the company because he believed there was a gap in the market.

“I’ve come across many people who have been disappointed with the level of service that private investigators provide,” he said.

“I’ve always loved surveillance so the passion is always there.”

Meet the private investigator snooping on cheating partners at Christmas parties in Nottingham

“Meet the private investigator snooping on cheating partners at Christmas parties in Nottingham”

Christmas is the busiest time of the year for many businesses - and one Nottingham private investigator says it’s not different for him.

Simon Henson, who runs Titan Private Investigation Ltd, which has an office in Friar Lane, said Christmas is a busy time of the year when catching cheating couples.

The agency is attending five Christmas parties in Nottingham this weekend to see if their clients’ concerns are valid.

The 42-year-old, a former police officer at Nottinghamshire Police for 17 years, who worked in Counter Terror Surveillance, set up the agency in 2014 and investigates both matrimonial and corporate cases.

One Christmas party sting in Nottingham saw the man under investigation “come on” to the female private investigator sent out to follow him.

Mr Henson told the Post: “It is quite sad that Christmas is a really busy time of year for us. There are Christmas parties where you are mixing professional relationships with alcohol and flirting. We get a lot of clients who ring us up last minute and want their other half followed.

“It can be before the Christmas party, after, or at the party. We follow more females than males.

“They might slip away from the group or book a hotel room and we might be asked to stay there and see them leave. Ninety percent of the time their concerns are right.”

Legal Use of Surveillance Drones | The Association of British Investigators

The Association of British Investigators

Is the use of drones legal for private surveillance?

Read More

Published: Tuesday 26th September 2017

Titan Private Investigations was invited to contribute a news article for publication on The Association of British Investigators website. An extract from the article can be read below:

“Is the use of drones legal for private surveillance?

The answer, in short, is ‘yes’, however with some provisos. The CAA (Commercial Aviation Authority) admits that the rules and regulations around drone use are “evolving”, but this is the current status: drones are classified as “unmanned aircraft”, and the CAA is keen to point out that they are most certainly a type of aircraft and “not toys”.

The commercial use of drones is licensed by the CAA meaning that if you use a drone during your work then you will need a license. To apply for a Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) you will have to successfully complete a CAA approved commercial pilot qualification. This qualification involves both theory and practical assessments and is pass/fail.

What are the CAA flying guidelines? You are required to fly the aircraft “within sight”. This means not above 400 feet in altitude or further than 500 metres horizontally. If you wish to exceed this, then you will need to seek explicit permission from the CAA. You must avoid flying it within 150 metres of a congested area and 50 metres of a person, vessel, vehicle or structure not under the control of the pilot.”

Titan Private Investigations was invited to contribute a news article for publication on The Association of British Investigators website. An extract from the article can be read below:

“My agency was contacted by a large national corporate client who was experiencing theft and interference with equipment used to measure seismic activity below the ground over a 25-mile squared area. The thefts were mainly happening during the hours of darkness and conducted by organised activists opposed to the testing and who were not short in numbers.

The thefts and equipment tampering had cost the company more than £100,000 and had severely disrupted operational capabilities and efficiency, costing £100,000’s in lost time and labour.

The client used large teams of mobile patrols to deter and disrupt the thefts, however, the thefts and tampering continued, costing the company further in assets and lost time.

Our researchers conducted crime pattern analysis to identify hotspots and future target locations, considering the topography of the land and demographics.”

He outlined the tactics, capabilities and expertise of the operatives behind Titan who are mainly former Police, Security Service or Military.

Simon discussed the difficulties in managing the expectations of clients, preparing them for confirmation of their suspicions and the referral partnership we have with charities such as Relate and independent relationship counsellors.

Founder and managing director Simon Henson, a former police detective sergeant, has revealed more couples, married or otherwise, are using undercover surveillance to see if their partners are cheating on them at Christmas.

Titan’s Managing Director Simon Henson who was interviewed for the article and went on to say:
“Unfortunately, office parties offer the ideal opportunity for people to cheat on their partners.”
“They are often held in locations away from where people live and, in many cases, that means accommodation is booked for those attending.”

“In a lot of instances, it’s a case of someone having a long-term affair with a work partner, but it’s also a convenient opportunity for others who find themselves tempted to be unfaithful to their partner.”

“Obviously, when you add alcohol and people’s inhibitions are reduced it makes it more likely.”
Mr Henson, who set up his company in September last year after 20 years with the police, said the matrimonial side of the business – which refers to married and unmarried couples – is booming, and particularly in Leicestershire.

He said: “I know we had only just started up last Christmas, which was quiet, but this year we have already carried out 18 operations – a third of which have been in the county, and I imagine we will have many more by the time the festive holiday season is over.

“In the past year, we’ve done hundreds of operations across the East Midlands and further afield and I’d say 40 percent of them have been in Leicestershire. It’s a side of the business that’s expanding.”

More married couples are using undercover surveillance to see if their partners are cheating on them at Christmas.

Titan’s Managing Director Simon Henson who was interviewed for the article and went on to say:
“The client will want to know who may be going back to their partner’s room – we’re just inundated with Christmas party requests.”

“We have an average of around three matrimonial cases every week. Some weeks we’ll get none but others we’ll be working for seven days straight.

“In almost 100 per cent of our cases we’ve had in the 15 months we’ve been operating, there has been something going on.

“The gender balance is certainly not 50-50. We follow more females, about 60 percent, compared to males.”

Mr Henson a former Nottinghamshire Police detective sergeant who is married with one child, said he often had to witness the fall-out from broken relationships.

I thought I had seen it all in the police but clearly not – it absolutely destroys people when trust is broken.”

Cheating Spouses Beware

Cheating spouses beware… private investigation is big business, as Simon Henson tells Gemma Peplow…

Simon Henson sits in his car outside a hotel, watching a woman as she heads for a room with a man who is not her husband. For several hours, he has watched them; check-in, a walk into town, dinner and drinks at a nearby restaurant, then back to the hotel. The body language is hesitant at first – it’s definitely not a relationship that’s been going on for long, he says – but becomes more flirtatious, more sexual, as the alcohol flows and the night wears on.

Photographs, videos, the proof – “because if it’s not on photo or video, it hasn’t happened. It’s just your word” – are taken, discreetly, covertly. There’s nothing remarkable about Simon’s appearance, his car, his place outside the hotel. The couple have no idea they are being watched.

Simon, a former police detective sergeant who worked as a surveillance operative for Nottinghamshire Police and went on to join the East Midlands Counter Terrorist Intelligence Unit, set up Titan Private Investigations in January. He mainly covers Leicestershire and the rest of the East Midlands – keeping it local as “local knowledge is gold-dust” – taking on the eyes and ears role for anyone looking to catch someone out, from adulterous spouses to insurance fraudsters.
