The Job of a Private Investigator

PIs have a very varied workload, with many teams specialising in areas of infidelity of finding people.  Here at UK PI, we offer a wide range of services to our clients, from discreet surveillance through to investigating potential fraud and tracing missing people and even pets.  We can find information about specific people very quickly using specialised tools and techniques.  Many of our PIs will also spend much of their day uncovering background information, asking questions and analysing information to assist with a case.

We often have people asking us what they need to do in order to become a private detective. Whether that is looking to search for courses related to PI or how to go about setting up a business.  There are currently no entry requirements to become a PI, however this is likely to become more rigorous in future with individuals needing to be hold a license through the Security Industry Authority (SIA) before they can work as an investigator.  It can be worthwhile gaining experience in some form of law enforcement role, or perhaps an investigative role. Many private investigators originally began their careers in the police force or the armed forces for instance.

Some of the key characteristics expected of any good PI is the ability to analyse a wide range of information, have a great eye for detail and fantastic interpersonal skills.  The ability to speak to a diverse range of people is a must, along with patience and advanced level IT skills. You can find out more about the job of a PI by checking the Association of British Investigators.

The Costs of Private Investigators

One of the most common queries we hear at UK PI is to do with the cost of investigations across a wide range of services including people surveillance both within the public and private sectors.  Naturally, consumers wish to know how much private investigators cost before they commit to booking our services!  The issue with discussing general costs is that there is no “typical” investigation, same as there are no “typical” cars on the road.  Every investigation is unique and although many of the investigatory processes are similar, every case is different.

As the cost of hiring a private detective can vary dramatically, depending on things like your location, the nature of your case and more, it is very important that you trust the agency you choose to work with.  Whilst we may not be the cheapest detective agency, we have the experience and skills to ensure we solve your case.  Of course, should you decide not to work with the right agency, the costs will quickly spiral! We always quote with transparency and honesty at the forefront.
