Private Detectives - a brief history.

The term Private Detective or Private Investigator has been around since Victorian Times and as the UK Police sadly become less and less effective, the quality of Service provided by them becomes poorer and thus the need to engage a Detective Agency or a PI has become more prevalent.  Equally the Private Investigator has always offered Services outside the remit of the Police, especially in aspects of the 'cheating partner'.  

Where P&D Investigations Limited specialize, is in the Commercial, Insurance & Criminal investigatory angles - we regularly gather evidence which is presented to the various authorities to facilitate a criminal investigation and subsequent prosecution.

The investigative field of a PI is now immense and we embrace over 40 categories within our List of Services but the table is almost endless, with TRACING being very popular.  Alas the Private Investigator market is now flooded with companies and some remain quite ordinary in their abilities & skills and even boasting covering areas that they do NOT - thus it is vital that a client ensures that the PI holds the right qualifications, experience and Memberships.  

Recently the Private Detective's reputation has been tarnished with events such as Phone Hacking and Newspaper scandals but P&D Investigations Limited prides itself in its very professional background, approach and over 27 years in the profession alone, aside from our police experience.

The world has become smaller and the availability of information is now vast - we always encourage our clients to try and carry out their own research and 'digging' before utilizing us but like any profession you cannot beat the help of the expert!!  Surveillance is an art not a science.

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the very best service in the industry throughout Hertfordshire, London, the Home Counties and beyond!!
