A Private Investigator History
Private Detectives have been around since time immemorial, whenever someone has needed to find someone, or to watch someone, a private investigator was used. Traditionally there was a difference between a Private Investigator (PI) and a Private Detective (PD) but in current times, there is no discernable difference. This page has been compiled by practising private investigators.

Private Investigators perform a variety of tasks that no one else can do.
PROCESS SERVICES:The bread and butter of any agency is process serving which is the serving of legal documents on behalf of the courts and or claimants. The recipients usually do not want to be served and tend to try and evade being served by the process server. Generally speaking, it's impossible to evade being served in the UK.
CLAIM, FRAUD & INSURANCE INVESTIGATIONS: Private Investigators carry out motor theft, finance fraud claim investigations and accident claim investigations for insurance, finance companies and the legal industry. The investigative process can take many forms of approach, including interviewing witnesses, talking to neighbours, taking photographic evidence or undertaking a period of surveillance.
ASSET TRACE INVESTIGATIONS: Asset Traces are used to reveal the financial profile of an individual or business. The asset search can be useful in matters involving litigation and in general business law. There are several levels of the asset search, from basic search of public records to very thorough "deep" asset investigations. Asset Investigations are usually in-depth & consist of methods such as Database Interrogation and Surveillance etc.
