Private Drug Investigator
A private drug investigation, is an investigation by a licensed private investigator, for a private client. It may be for business purposes, personal information, or family related. The evidence gathered does not have to be reported to the Police. Phone 1300 966 103, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or Contact Us, for a discreet quote.
A private drug investigator, a licensed private investigator, cannot undertake buy/bust operations, they cannot take possession of drugs. They can observe, record evidence, and report. This is private investigator surveillance. The evidence may be gathered for work performance information, as part of a child custody or child access action, because of the concerns of relatives, as part of a WorkCover investigation, or for various other reasons. This action is legal; you suspect, we investigate, and report, to you. We are not obliged to report to a Government agency, nor the Police. We only report if directed by the client.
A lot of drug use has associated problems such as paranoia, deception, theft from family and friends, erratic behaviour. These behaviours are similar to those of other forms of addiction, such as gambling. These are issues to be aware of, when conducting a private drug investigation.
Private Investigator Australia investigators are experienced, and discreet. We are here to assist in drug investigations. There are legal limits to what we can do. There are financial limits to what the client can afford. The majority of our investigations are observation, surveillance, evidence gathering. The client may direct what we do with the information, the evidence, including giving it to the Police. We are not obliged to report to anyone but the client.
People can mask drug use, including alcohol abuse. Some can control drug use, for a time. We have seen situations where housewives exchange sex for drugs, where husbands plunder accounts to pay for their pleasures, where a business is milked to pay for addiction. Do not think that drug use is limited to the lower socioeconomic levels of society. People in 'high places', including Senators, Senior crown prosecutors, and Police, have been found to be drug users, at different times. A private investigator must not assume anything, when commencing these investigations; they simply follow where the evidence, the subject, leads them. Whilst one form of activity is suspected, there are times when observation shows another form of activity is actually occurring. We cannot create evidence, we simply record what is presented. Sometimes the drug exchange contact is very brief. It can be simply approaching a car in a shopping centre carpark, leaning in, and exchange of money for a bag of drugs, and moving away, over in seconds. The private drug investigator, the private investigator conducting the private drug investigation, must be in position to record this brief encounter. And this may not always happen, however, as the operator learns the subject's habits the probability of recording such events increases.
As with all private investigator surveillance, it is time on target that provides the story. Sometimes client 'assistance' can actually cause harm to an investigation; we do ask that we be provided with all available information, at the start of a task, and that the client not do out of the ordinary things, trying to help us. We need the subject as undisturbed as possible. When you are ready to proceed with a private drug investigation contact us, our operatives include ex-Police and experienced operators.
We do not 'examine' the drugs, and provide a certificate, as the Police do, which may be necessary for court purposes. What may have to happen, in some cases, is we investigate, and are able to provide sufficient information, to generate a Police investigation (possibly a warrant execution), which will include the forensic examination of drugs (issue of a certificate, signed by a scientist), and the presentation of evidence related to the using, or dealing, in illegal substances, and an appearance in court. This provides evidence of risk, or activity.
Allegations that a place is a 'crack house', that someone is dealing 'speed', using methamphetamines, is an 'ice' addict, requires the gathering of 'hard' evidence, that someone is operating a marijuana hothouse, and stealing electricity to run it (which is also dumb), requires evidence. That evidence may initially come from our investigations. In some cases it may require more than one operator at a time, which can get expensive, because observing, and following away to establish links, can create too much movement.
