Online Private Investigators

This article was originally written in 2012 and updated in 2017

Online Private Investigators still seemed like a strange concept back in 2012. When this page first went live we wrote;

“With the expansion of the world wide web and global popularity of people of all ages using the internet it is crucial to private detective agencies such as Insight to have a wealth of experience in internet investigations.”

It seems strange to think that less than five years ago there was a large proportion of the population still not online. Today things are very different and how we use the internet has moved on as well.

Back then I wrote;

“The internet has provided investigators with a new and more importantly legal weapon with which to research, train, explore and of course gather evidence for investigation purposes.”

Today when we investigate any case we need to start from the point that everything we do needs to stand up to scrutiny in the highest courts in the land and evidence collected as part of our investigation must be of the highest professional standards.

Maintaining Professional Standards

When I was called before the Leveson Inquiry in 2012, I said that the World Association of Private Investigators (WAPI), of which we are founder members, backed regulation as the fragmentation of the industry meant that professional standards were not being upheld as they should.

This applied especially to online private investigations where some people believed that methods such as phone tapping and hacking were perfectly alright as they were done remotely and ‘didn’t harm anyone’. This is fundamentally flawed thinking.

Online private investigators, therefore, must be beyond reproach. We must find material that is available without resorting to illegal means of gaining it.
