Private Investigators Birmingham
Why choose us over other investigators? We pride our selves in the professional manor in which we conduct our operations, and we really do go the extra mile to achieve great results for our clients. We are registered data controllers with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO)(registration number available on request), we hold comprehensive public liability and professional indemnity policies, we are highly trained with relevant investigative qualifications and we are full members of the Association of British Investigators (ABI). Being an approved member of the ABI means you can be assured that we have been vetted by the most trusted, well known and longest standing investigative association in the UK. You can count on our practices being up to scratch whilst conducted legally, professionally and in accordance with GDPR requirements. We are supported by the ABI with a worldwide network of investigators who produce best practice for investigative services policies, and regularly notify association members with the most up to date legislation surrounding the industry. At present, the investigation industry is unregulated by any governing body which means absolutely anybody can claim and practice as an investigator with our without any form of training. Be under no illusion, there are many of these people out there who claim to be "investigators" and provide a service that us professionals deem to be hugely inadequate and totally unprofessional. You are likely to find these types offering similar services at rates which are considered to be well under the industry norm. We believe in fair pricing for investigative services, and as such our prices are set competitively against the professional market. Whether you choose to make use of our services or not, we strongly advise against choosing an investigator purely on the price at which they offer their services. A very cheap plumber is going to cause leaks in your water system. A very cheap electrician is going to install dodgy electrics. A very cheap investigator is going break the law to get you a result which will find the investigator (and you) in court for all the wrong reasons. Ensure you check an investigators credentials and be clear that they are members of a professional association as well as holding all the relevant policies and registrations as previously mentioned.
Prior to evolving into the world of private investigators, the founder of Sentry Investigations developed the necessary skills and disciplines for covert surveillance operations and other types of investigation with a previous honourable term of extensive service with HM Forces (British Army). With operational and training deployments across many parts of the world including Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan, Sentry Investigations are experienced operators in both hostile and peace time environments. We understand the importance and we practice the art of remaining covert/discreet whilst remaining task focused on operations. Whether it be keeping a terrorist under surveillance, or keeping a cheating partner under surveillance, two completely different comparisons but both are observed under the same surveillance methodologies. We now operate amongst a UK and global network of investigators with the Association of British Investigators being our common centre point. We utilise investigators from all walks of life when and where required but generally we associate with ex military personnel, ex police officers and other government agencies or ex and current security operatives (surveillance/close protection trained trained only).
A common reason to contact a private investigator in Birmingham is to evidence suspicions of infidelity (cheating partners). If you suspect your partner is cheating on you, don't allow your suspicions to just carry on as it may be something you deeply regret in the future. We will deploy trusted local private investigators to evidence your partners actions whether they are sinister or in good faith. We would in no way pressure a client into taking on our services as we are fully aware of the sensitive nature behind cases such as these. As you reason to believe your partner may now be cheating on you, your world is likely to be crumbling around you with panic, anxiety and depression kicking in. Hiring a private investigator may seem to be an even further daunting prospect, or something you have never even considered but when this is happening in a relationship, the best thing the effected person or family can do is take back control. Once you have control of the situation, you can plan ahead and take action in any way you want. Without the proof to put in front of your cheating partner all you have is an accusation. Sentry Investigations will provide you with the evidence you need to prove infidelity, and all it takes is a phone call or email to set up your investigation.
Likewise, if you suspect any wrongdoing in your business such as employee theft, suspicious employee absenteeism or a suspected fraudulent workplace injury claim... Instead of just letting it happen, get the matter investigated professionally so you can decide on how you wish to proceed with the employee that is ultimately impacting your business for the wrong reasons. We offer tailored investigations for the corporate sector with extensive knowledge of employment law to ensure we operate in a way in which protects your business. We can offer advice and support around how to proceed when investigating an employee or contractor, and we can seek further advice and guidance from HR representatives within the ABI. We are here to assist you with your investigation in any way we can, whether it be a surveillance operation, a background check on a new employee or just some free advice on an issue you may be having. Give us a call and we will be happy to help. Sentry Investigations are members of the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, and to support local businesses we offer 10% off all of our investigative services.
Please note, we take GDPR and data protection laws very seriously and as such, Data Protection Impact Assessment's (DPIA's) are completed prior to any and all investigations. A legitimate and legally sound interest must be established prior to commencement of our investigations and we will seek third party advice where necessary should we be in any doubt. Likewise, if you have any concerns regarding our data handling procedures, please feel free to submit your enquiry at any point.
