Investigative services to provide the evidence you need
Specialist investigations to provide evidence of counterfeit goods, illicit tobacco or alcohol sales, breach of licence and the underage sale of tobacco or alcohol.
Durham Detectives's highly trained operatives have years of experience carrying out work in some of the most difficult circumstances. Previous cases have involved the following issues:
Users of illicit products often argue that is a victimless crime. However the majority of illegal tobacco and alcohol operations are run by organised crime syndicates and the profits used to fund far more serious crimes such as people trafficking and narcotics smuggling.
In the first instance, when investigating Counterfeit Products, Durham Detectives always recommend at least 10 hours surveillance. This will allow us to monitor the subject’s movements and give us a good indication as to whether further investigation would be necessary. You can then discuss with your Case Manager if additional surveillance would be beneficial to you.
All the evidence we gather on your behalf is done so legally. Your surveillance is carried out by 2 highly trained agents and we provide you with court ready reports. All video and photographic stills are time and date stamped.
Durham Detectives offer business surveillance packages to cover all eventualities. To book this service today or to find out more information, call 0191 301 74 45 or get in touch via our contact page.
