The public need to know they have recourse should their investigator fail them in ways related to professional standards, integrity and honesty.

I believe licensing will promote a more professional image of the industry.

I have bad experience with an agency based in UK recently who misused WAPI & ABI logos to mislead clients. After collecting deposit, the said agency demanded for additional payment (more than double the deposit) before agreeing to proceed further. When no further payment is made, the said agency threatened to contact the targets etc.

I have been licensed in Europe for 24 years , it gives your Street Cred. I have been campaigning since I was 47 for this, even had my say before parliament in 1996. I am 71 this year, will I ever see UK PI,s regulated ?

The industry needs to be licensed, too many unqualified people out there doing extremely sensitive investigations / surveillance.
