It turns out everyone loves to hear what a Private Investigator gets up too…


I do this job and run Taylor Investigations everyday. Yes, there is still the strong passion for the work but it always raises a smile when I can dispel the myths of what I really get up to and how the job can be so varied. I don’t hide in trees stalking people… well, not all the time!

Over the past few months I have been asked to give talks about the day to day jobs, the business and how I became a Private Investigator. After leaving the police with a criminology degree I tried a few other jobs such as working in a Residential Children’s Home but the passion for investigation was strong. After researching and looking into the world of private investigation I took the leap into the business.

I often talk about the struggles of being in business and the transition from the police to the civilian world but it really is the best job in the world. Every day brings in new cases all very different to one another.

One day I can be tracing a debtor in Devon, a surveillance case in Southampton, a fraud in Fakenham as well as much more. We even have a case for a suspicious death in Singapore. Other case examples include tracing assets of persons who declare bankruptcy, digital forensics, surveillance of staff for companies and internal theft and fraud investigations.

On the 24th May 2018 I will be conducting a talk for the Norfolk Law Society speaking to solicitors and other litigation professionals about how private investigators can use our services to benefit their cases. This came from showcasing the talks I do along side the power of social media!

So if you want to know more about being a private investigator and what we actually get up to, let me know. I’m always happy to answer questions or even give a talk for your group or business.
