How do the private detective industry in China?
In China, the emergence and development of private investigators, not only with the urgent needs of enterprises and individual citizens, but also with the development of science and technology, specialization and the legal system has an inextricable close relationship.
- 1, the national government public authorities, lawyers and other traditional legal services can not effectively address the needs:
State power sector in the personalized, commercial services have greater limitations, regardless of which country can not be an exception, which is also the reason why private detectives legally exist abroad. The general parties are also less willing to investigate the content of too many unrelated people. Due to the complexity of the investigation and related work and professionalism, the lawyer himself is also difficult to undertake such work alone! Counterfeiting and some litigation evidence collection work, for example, no professional training, more general legal affairs lawyers, who can do to risk life and limb, sneak into the base of counterfeiting, collection and shooting of evidence, site photos? And how many lawyers are willing to change their faces, more than ten days as a moment to keep an eye on a suspicious object, from the front, the side of the various channels of hard work to collect a variety of information that may be helpful? These are not jobs that can be done by lawyers alone! These need to have another kind of professional investigators, that is, the private detective investigation agency!
- 2, corporate credit checks, employee investigations, private investigations:
With the development of the economy, the dilution of traditional morality and the imperfections of the legal system and regulations, business, trade and other economic activities are increasingly risky! Enterprises in trade and business, to investigate the background and credit, in order to protect the safety of business; in the recruitment of an important position before the person in charge of the employee’s past experience, character and behavior, in order to reduce the risk of human resources. For individuals, the principle of “who claims, who proves” in judicial practice, for both parties to the case how to collect as much as possible to all the evidence in their favor has become the focus of winning the “lawsuit”! Litigation evidence collection work has a strong professionalism, individual citizens, enterprises rely on their own strength is very difficult, which provides a space for some of the original department of the judiciary, with professional investigation channels and related qualities of the private detective investigation agency.
- 3, the protection of intellectual property rights of enterprises, anti-unfair competition:
China’s existing market economy is the transition from the traditional planned economic system, itself is relatively lack of intellectual property rights, brand protection awareness. Some regions and enterprises lack the basic legal awareness and business ethics, making, imitating and selling famous brands of well-known enterprises. It is difficult to rely solely on state departments to effectively stop the production and sale of counterfeit goods. In terms of intelligence gathering and investigation and evidence collection capabilities, more professional and specialized personnel and social organizations are needed to assist. As government departments have limited manpower and resources, and the investigation and handling of such cases is more costly, the effect is difficult to predict, the private detective (investigation) agency is obviously a much more ideal choice. Civilian private detective investigative agencies generally have a variety of special investigative techniques, better for the enterprise to combat unfair competition escort.
In China, private detective and business and personal needs, and technological development, specialization and the legal system has a close relationship.
