How a private investigator can assist you - some explanations from Airmax Investigations Western Australia

Explanation about Private Investigation

We have no more authority than does a private citizen. We are not police officers. The training, testing, background checks, and certification process we go through in order to obtain our licenses is meant to set us apart as individuals who are committed to unbiased professionalism. As such, we are bound to rigid codes of conduct dictated by the Federal Privacy Act 1988 and National Privacy Principals. Our licenses are issued in accordance with the Security and Related Activities (Control) Act 1996.

Similarly, we are not attorneys. Though we are very knowledgeable of the laws governing our actions, any advice we give concerning the direction or outcome of your case is merely a suggestion that should be approved by any legal representative you may have.

Ours is an industry revolving around detail gathered through available information, the understanding of this detail, and the working knowledge of how to follow the trails we uncover. This detailed information is generated through diligence and knowing where to look.

Sometimes the information generated is contrary to what the client hopes to find. We cannot guarantee results. We can only guarantee that the necessary information, documentation, etc. will be searched for diligently, legally, expediently, and as economically as possible.

If surveillance is necessary we feel obligated to inform you of the "real life caveats." Surveillance, especially moving surveillance, is a hit and miss science. We can perform these observations under agreed upon time and location parameters but cannot promise activity on behalf of the subject. Similarly, moving surveillance carries with it inherent obstacles such as the unpredictable nature of traffic. There is no guarantee that contact with the subject can be maintained as we cannot predict traffic flow, traffic conditions, weather, or other unforeseen problems. This includes traffic laws. Similarly, privacy and private property laws will dictate the conduct of some surveillance.

Airmax Investigations can, however, make a promise that most of the other agencies can't. That is, we will do everything in our power to reach the goal of obtaining the information you need in a timely and economical fashion and conduct ourselves in a professional and discreet manner while representing you in your case.

Do not attempt to conduct surveillance or any other investigation on your own. Surveillance and investigations by anyone other than a licensed professional is considered "stalking" , "invasion of privacy" or many other illegal acts and may carry a fine or even jail time, and can be very dangerous. Also, any evidence that is collected by anyone other than a licensed professional is not admissible in the court of law.
