A private investigator possesses the same rights to access locations or information as any other UK citizen. They don’t have additional rights or privileges. The distinction lies in their skill set and experience. For instance, while Open Source information is accessible to everyone, it often requires expertise to effectively navigate and extract the relevant details from an overwhelming amount of data. How often do you delve beyond the first page of a Google search, let alone reach page 100? A private investigator, with their specialised skills, can efficiently do just that.
