When you are selecting a Police Licensed Private Detective in Singapore, it is always good to confirm that the Agencies and the Private Detectives are licensed by the PLRD.

The License is always on display in the office or most Private Investigators will save a copy on the phone. Do some research on their experience and expertise before you meet up with them. Read more in-depth on their website and ask some questions about their experience and their success rate.

Beware of detectives/investigators who divulge details, or boast about past cases they have solved to impress you. This is a sign of confidentiality being breached by the private investigator. We believe that total confidentiality must be strictly maintained to protect clients' privacy. No clients will want their case to be discussed partially or fully as a case study.
