NEW AVENUES FOR SUPPORT AGAINST HARASSMENT

NEW AVENUES FOR SUPPORT AGAINST HARASSMENT

At Surmount Investigations we provide a comprehensive and bespoke support package to those who are suffering harassment in a multitude of different forms, which you can read more about here.

The most common type of support we offer to clients for this service relates to people who have exited a relationship and the ex-partner is causing them distress or in other respects a person has rejected someone’s affections and this person has turned nasty towards them as a result.

However, new changes in the law now reflect an acknowledgement that harassment, alarm and distress can occur to an individual within a relationship and legislation has now been expanded to define a whole raft of behaviours by your spouse or partner as a criminal act.

CRIMINAL DEFENCE INVESTIGATIONS

CRIMINAL DEFENCE INVESTIGATIONS

At Surmount Investigations we offer one of the most comprehensive defence investigation services in the region.

We work with individuals who have been accused of a criminal offence but who maintain their innocence and feel that they have been let down ahead of their impending court date by an insufficient consolidation and presentation of the facts. We do this work either through instruction from the individual’s legal representative or in partnership with said representative.

Our work has ranged from supporting someone accused of a driving offence which they wished to contest through to helping someone who had been accused of a serious assault occasioning grievous bodily harm they denied ever committing, with quite a few variants in cases in between.

With this week’s blog we are going to take a closer and more detailed look at the benefits of employing a defence investigator to your case – with great haste! Read more about CRIMINAL DEFENCE INVESTIGATIONS

OLD GOALS SMASHED! … NEW GOALS FORMED!

OLD GOALS SMASHED! … NEW GOALS FORMED!

With our second operational year now behind us, we wanted to do as we did in the first year and take a quick look back on what we’ve achieved as private investigators in Newcastle and throughout the whole of the North East.

Whilst working with the specific mandate of changing people’s perceptions of what a private investigator does and only taking on cases that meet our very high ethical standards, we set out the goals in our first year of 1) getting accepted as full/substantive members into a professional regulatory body within our field, 2) getting onto Page 1 of Google without any ‘tricks’ or ‘cheats’, 3) breaking further into the field of insurance fraud work and litigation support and 4) we wanted to survive the year.

HOW TO DEAL WITH NEIGHBOURS FROM HELL

HOW TO DEAL WITH NEIGHBOURS FROM HELL

Our client in Gateshead came to us at their wits end because of new neighbours next door that were of the “nightmare” variety instantly upon moving in – and only getting worse with each day.

It started with the neighbours allowing their four dogs out each day to urinate and defecate on our client’s property. When they were challenged about it and asked to stop it, the harassment started immediately: Loud music being put on blast when they went out so that our client had to suffer it, rubbish being purposefully thrown over the fence line in the back garden and property damage occurring during the night.

WHY EXCELLENT LOCUS REPORTING IS IMPORTANT

WHY EXCELLENT LOCUS REPORTING IS IMPORTANT

A LOCUS report is a formal document made up of various other pieces of evidence that is designed to explain and identify the physical facts of how and where an accident or incident has occurred.

The overall document when broken down will contain things such as sketch plans, photographs, localised pertinent intelligence and the authoring agent’s written report. In our area of work within private investigation, they are most commonly used in legal cases such as insurance claims and defence cases pertaining to road traffic collisions and accidents resulting in injury.
