Our qualified and experienced investigators are committed to providing a professional and discreet solutions-focused service.

Our investigators have been carefully selected to represent the company and each investigator treats all clients and each job with complete confidentiality. All our investigators have a thorough understanding of investigations methodology and are very experienced in putting this theory into practice

We pride ourselves on our communications skills; we are professionally personable and are adept at adapting our approach depending on the clients we work with, and the subjects of our investigations.

While our core team is based in Christchurch, we work with a wider network of contractors and agents throughout New Zealand and overseas. This network enables us to respond quickly and cost-effectively to investigations nationally and internationally.We all have experience working on serious crime investigations in a covert and overt capacity. Serious crimes include homicide, fraud, drug distribution, and crimes of dishonesty and violence.
