Suki March 15, 2024

I had to use The Local Detectives to follow my partner as she was travelling to Amsterdam and I was suspicious something was going to happen whilst she was out there. Robert and his team kept an eye on her the entire time and provided me with updates and pictures throughout the Surveillance operation. I was extremely happy with the service I received and the Surveillance service was excellent. The Local Detectives are the real deal and the absolute best Private Investigators I have ever used. Thank you and I will be using your services again soon.
