UK Private Investigator's Blog - "Write to your MP???"

There has been a growing cry for UK private investigators to write, en masse, to their local Mps. This is the first time this has ever happened in the history of the industry.

In the United States the private investigation and security sectors constantly lobby their mayors and senators in the interests of their industry. Most of their talks focus on freedom of information issues and addressing freedom of speech issues. They are usually joined by several other industry’s lobby groups who share similar concerns.

In the UK, however, the private investigation and security industries rarely become so active politically. Recently the information commissioner’s stance on information gathering has been seen to be overly too harsh in the investigation industry and has merited this mailing “en masse” to MPs.

The main concern of private investigators everywhere is that those people who NEED to gain access to RELEVANT information is not hindered by laws aiming to target information and identity thieves. Surely the government can make the distinction between a common criminal INTENT on stealing your identity and the professionals who are often paid to try and find such individuals by the general public, amongst other legitimate investigations (finding birth parents, insurance fraud investigations etc).

UK Private Investigator Blog - "People Search Success"


My success in finding missing people has been very good lately. Last month most of my cases involved searching for people who had vanished within the last 10 years. I got a 90% success rate last month! Woohooo! I'm quite pleased.

Generally, if the people I'm searching for went missing after 1990 I can do a lot of investigative work using databases and credit databases that I just can't do for someone who was last seen in 1962. Full names, DOBs and previous addresses allow me to use everything I have access to to search for these people, so please supply these details if you know them.

That said, I also took on 3 "Birth Parent" cases last month. I've found one of them, the other two cases are still on going. Birth parent cases take longer to complete than regular traces within the last 10 years as there's alot of record searching to be done by hand and investigating alot more possible matches that are thrown up.

Anyway, I'd be happy to help you if you have a case for me - Contact Me - UK People Search
