On 31 July 2013 the Home Secretary announced the Government’s intention for the SIA to regulate private investigation activities. This will affect both those in the business and those hoping to enter it, ensuring a minimum set of standards.

The Private Security Industry Act 2001 defines the licensable activities of private investigations. According to the Act you will need an SIA licence if you are involved in any surveillance, inquiries or investigations that are carried out for the purposes of:

  • Obtaining information about a particular person or about the activities or whereabouts of a particular person; or
  • Obtaining information about the circumstances in which, or means by which, property has been lost or damaged.

This Level 3 course will provide in-depth knowledge on how to research information from various sources, gather information through interviews and provide an overview of how surveillance operations (both overt and covert) can assist in gathering information to support an investigation and how that information can be used. You will enhance your private detective skills in preparing for and in presenting the findings of investigations to various clients. Any investigation conducted must be done in accordance with the law and in accordance with best practice guidelines. You will learn how to collate and corroborate evidence for Criminal and Civil investigations and the key differences of what is and isn’t acceptable in each case.

The award is suitable for a range of specialist investigatory areas including:

  • Loss Prevention
  • Competitor Profiling
  • Insurance fraud investigations
  • Medico Legal Investigations
  • Employee disputes and Investigations
  • Matrimonial Investigations
  • Surveillance Operators
