It was recently announced that operating as an unregulated private investigator will become a criminal offence, with Home Secretary Theresa May having announced that she hopes to introduce the relevant legislation at some point in 2014. For the time being, though, any individual can become a private investigator irrespective of their background.
Private investigators can be extremely useful when one party needs to locate a missing spouse, conduct investigations into their husband or wife’s finances and for numerous other reasons and many of the people that visit this site may find it necessary to utilise the services of such an individual.

Established in 1913, The Association of British Investigators (ABI) continuously campaigned for regulation within their industry and has bestowed membership on investigators after they have stringently vetted their suitability, ensuring that they are reputable, professional and possess the training and proficiencies required beforehand.
