Although private investigators can work within any profession, it is often more comforting for clients to know our private detectives are from a military or police background. You can rest assured that investigators from such backgrounds will work hard to deliver expert results and work within the law when conducting investigations throughout Aberdeen. Private detectives do not hold the same legal rights as police officers over members of the public and It is also illegal for anyone to pose as a police officer in order to collect information for an investigation.

Following a set of rules and procedures with individual discretion, private detectives in Aberdeen can ensure that all investigative work is completed to the highest standard and is fully admissible in a court of law. The investigative techniques utilised by private detectives can differ from one company to another. However, most companies will use various methods to obtain information for either individual or corporate purposes.

Private detectives in Aberdeen employ a wide range of investigation methods, but the first precaution should always be making sure that everyone involved remains safe and that the investigators do not inadvertently cause unnecessary damage or injury. Investigators will then utilise all legal procedures to acquire the relevant information for the required outcome.

Below are examples of the tools and legal techniques a private investigator at Dion International in Aberdeen can legally utilise when conducting investigation services. However, to keep this simple, we will focus on the services we conduct for our daily throughout Aberdeen:

At Dion International, we pride ourselves on being an honest and reputable private detective agency based in Aberdeen that uses only legal procedures on all investigations.  Our private detectives are required to conduct investigations for clients with sensitive personal disputes and stressful business matters, large or small. Our private investigators gain valuable insight into evaluating legal intelligence, which can assist in gaining a better understanding and assist with our investigations, making this cost-effective for our clients.


Private investigators are permitted to follow individuals. Covert surveillance teams from our detective agency in Aberdeen are well trained and disciplined to know what is required for effectively accomplishing all set objectives. Surveillance is considered one of the best investigative approaches when researching an individual’s day-to-day behaviour, movements, and general lifestyle.

One of the most frequently asked questions is, will the subject know they are under surveillance? We will suggest the most effective means of minimising the possibility of a compromise by the subject or third parties and, upon consideration of specific circumstances and requirements, we may impose a minimum deployment requirement. Our covert surveillance operatives are diverse in their backgrounds, having years of investigative experience upon which to draw, they have mastered the art of integrating themselves into any community or surrounding environment to which they are assigned. Their ultimate objectives are obtaining crucial information and doing so in an incredibly covert but legal way. We have male and female operatives available to work both within rural and urban environments.


  • Static Surveillance – Undertaken by one operative.  Carefully positioned outside a property and will film and record the movements of a person, or persons at an address or location in Aberdeen.
  • Mobile Surveillance – When required to follow a person/persons. Undertaken by a team, whether that be two, three, four or more.  We have the capabilities of utilising various vehicles applicable to the job and all the latest technology and equipment to capture the required evidence for our clients throughout Aberdeen.
  • Rural Surveillance  – Required when tasked to monitor a scenario while in a rural area. Depending on the circumstances, this can usually be conducted by one operative.

Our private detective agency undertakes vehicle tracking for clients throughout Aberdeen, the Lothians, and Borders. utilising state-of-the-art equipment that can be covertly hidden and accessed by our operatives assigned to the investigation for the duration of the agreed period. We will not provide login details for any client to access this system.

The information gathered should assist in surveillance and intelligence gathering only and should not be presented to a court on its own. Our GPS trackers cannot ensure the desired information because it is contingent on who is driving the vehicle – unless the driver is under surveillance.


Our private detective agency in Aberdeen has the right to investigate who has gone missing, either intentionally or inadvertently. The missing individual may have relocated, changed name or place of residence to avoid debt-related issues.

We have access to databases not accessible to the general public and open-source-intelligence, or OSINT, which can be used to investigate missing individuals who may have previously lived in Aberdeen.


Does your company have employees who are constantly on sick leave? Are you concerned about theft in the workplace? Or is your corporation bugged? Our private investigators in Aberdeen can perform corporate investigations and deliver solid evidence and peace of mind to you, the business owner.


There are no two cases alike, and to determine the cost, several factors must be considered, including methods of delivery, number of hours, number of operatives to be provided for the investigation to be conducted professionally, mileage, and any other special resources required for the investigation to succeed.

During an initial no-obligation, no-cost consultation with a team member at our private detective agency, we will work with you to develop a strategy that will best meet your needs and wishes to make your investigation cost-effective.


An hourly rate can seem high when you do not know what will be accomplished or how long this might take. Due to this, it may be tempting to hire a less experienced, cheaper investigator. However, please know they might take more time than experienced investigators, and it will likely cost you much more. And that’s if they were successful in gathering the required evidence. Unethical practices could also result from not meeting the standard of proof required by a court or tribunal.

Additional to the cost of the services you require, you may be charged for travel time, mileage, report writing, food and beverage, entry fees, and parking fees incurred during the investigation.


General Enquiries – General enquiry costs start at £40.00 per hour but depend on the number of detectives required and the time of day or night the service is required.

Mileage – 0.60p per mile.

Report – Report writing start at £150.00. This is dependent on the duration of the task. The longer the task, the longer the report, which will require additional costs. However, our private detective agency offers daily rate packages that include a full report, meaning no additional costs will be added when committed to one of these packages.

People Search – Our trace service starts from £205.00. Additional costs may be required depending on the information provided to us at the start. The basic information we require is a name, date of birth, and last known address.

Process Server – Our process serving service starts at £120.00. Additional costs include the number of pages that may need printing, travel time, and mileage.

It’s understandably a distressing thought when you believe that someone may have bugged your property to secretly eavesdrop on your conversations or even secretly recording you where you expect a reasonable level of privacy. If you believe that your home, car or office may be electronically bugged, it is likely very difficult to feel safe and at ease.  A bug or recording device allows eavesdroppers to learn intimate details about your life and even to use those details to their own advantage either on a private or commercial level.

Trust your instinct. Someone might tell you you’re being unreasonable, having to think that your car or room is bugged with recording devices. But that unnerving feeling you have is a very useful tool. Finding hidden covert audio or video equipment is no easy thing to deal with and can be extremely difficult to come to terms with.

We will explain the basics of how to tell if your house, car or business premises are bugged with listening devices, GPS trackers and video equipment. Ultimately the best course of action is to hire a professional search team that use specialist equipment to detect such equipment and remove it.
