Yesterday I had a meeting with colleagues from the Association Of British Detectives (ABI) at Bushy Metropolitan Police Sports Club in Hertfordshire. These people have mixture of experience, some are ex Police but some have studied and come through without Police assistance, none seem to be better than the other, they supply services such as crime prevention, surveillance, tracing people, personal protection, serving documents kidnapping assistance and many other aspects of helping people.
This industry has been through torrid time lately what with phone hacking and other illegal stuff. It is pleasing to note that no member of the ABI has been involved in such actions, this is because they are well vetted with close network of friends in support.
I joined the association thinking I would be the best one there, stupid I know, but every time we meet I learn a bit more and there are interesting guest speakers.
If ever anybody needs help from Detective I advise them to contact the ABI or do it through me.
