4 Reasons to Hire a Professional Private Investigator in Australia

Background checks, stock shortages, partner fraud and infidelity all need discreet checking. The two main reasons for this are (a) the allegations may or may not turn out accurate, and (b) a flawed investigation that ends up in the public domain can end up in a litigation court. It can also prove the end of a relationship that in hindsight you would have rather kept. Using a licensed private investigator in Australia could stand you in good stead.

 

Registration of Private Investigators: Australia Institute of Private Detectives

A business registration is a permission to trade, not an assurance of quality of service. The free enterprise system leaves this for customers collectively to decide. In the case of private investigators in Australia, licensing standards vary from state to state, whereas quality assurance is the task of the AIPD (and to a lesser extent the Australian Security Industry Association Limited ASIAL). Before engaging an Australian private detective, ask to see evidence of membership.

Provision for Adequate, Effective, and Comprehensible Insurance Cover

The AIPD has a Code of Conduct with which all its members shall comply or face suspension. Among its many chapters is one that requires insurance in areas such as professional indemnity, workers compensation, public liability, business insurance and personnel accident insurance. No responsible businessperson should be without this. Probing questions are indicated before moving outside the AIPD safety net.

 

Training of Private Investigators: Australia Firms Not Always Accredited

Trainers of private investigators in Australia are not all accredited to the Australia Institute of Private Detectives. Those that are not fall largely outside the formal system and there is no central moderation of their standards. The AIPD maintains a list of Authorised Training Officers and administers a system to recognize prior learning. This ensures a minimum skill set across its segment of the industry, with progress towards it reflected in membership categories.
