About Private Investigating
Private investigators, or 'private eyes', work for the legal profession, councils, insurance companies, individuals or groups of people to undertake investigatory law services or investigative due diligence. Professional investigators work secretly to gather information and to check facts for their clients.
Many private detectives own their own agencies and work for themselves, with flexible hours and the freedom to make their own business decisions.
