In our country, private detective agencies, that is “investigation”: are “Private Investigation” agencies, upon request of the natural and legal persons, in charge of collecting all kinds of information, evaluating them, giving the information about the criminal acts to the “Administrative And Judicial Authorities And The Law Enforcement Forces”, and giving the other information to the natural and legal persons that requested the investigation within the framework of the Turkish penal code, the code of criminal procedures, civil code, and the other codes related with a specific subject providing not to interfere in private life and violate the personal rights. # # As of yet, there is no law on Private Detective Agencies. However, this does not mean that the private detective services provided right now are illegal. Enactment of the law will positively affect the agencies and investigators rather than the customers. Because, with this law area of responsibility of the Private Detectives will be outlined and during their service they will be able to receive support from the official state agencies within the borders drawn by the law. We, as the family of DAT Private Detective Agency, say that “the feeling of confidence is important” and are glad to provide services for you when you need private detectives by making no concessions to our principles of Privacy, Reliability, and Expertise.
ANKARA PRIVATE DAT DETECTIVE AGENCY was founded in 2005 and defined its area of activity as; investigation, consultancy, and security. The company provides the detective services based on the terms “In accordance with the demands of the customers, it gives the services such as the investigation, information collection and intelligence” which are in the relevant articles of the corporation charter. Since its foundation the company continue to provide services domestically and internationally with its qualified team that comprises of mostly retired military and police personnel who knows the privacy and secrecy terms. For the first time in Turkey, it established an association named “All Private Detectives” and organized training seminars based on the protocol with the university. “That there is no legal regulation does not necessarily mean that the profession of Private Detective does not exist.” First of all, I have the right to keep my children out of harm’s way and know with whom my children come in contact and what they do. While I do this I know that this stems not from the lack of confidence but from the instinct of protection. As being in search of having information about this, one of the reasonable solutions is receiving professional support. As a father I can also follow my child and receive help from a friend of mine. This is one of the services the Private Detectives provide. Or I can investigate the person who will get married to a relative of mine from the circle of friends. As the older brother, I can follow the spouse of my sibling with his/her permission to reveal whether he/she cheats on my sibling or anything bad exists. When I recruit a personnel I inquire and try to learn more about him in order to decide whether I can pass along my business to him. I can search for a missing relative of my friend. I can grow the list, what we demand from our friends when we encounter a question for which we cannot find any answer. When I place an ad on the newspaper, first thing I do is to check whether it is as I wanted. I am sure that the firm owners, who spend millions of dollars as the ads budget, also want to see whether the ads meet the objectives or not. Ads tracking is one of the Private Detective services. Let’s say I want to trade abroad. If one of our friends lives there, first of all we ask him to investigate the firm. This is one of the services we provide. It is a fact that in our country the Private Detective agencies have been cooperating with the persons and companies for years. There are lots of demand for different subjects. Here, I think, the most important point is that the demand and service should be in full compliance with the laws. In short, the Private Detective services, as they are conducted in our country, are the investigation, surveillance and consultancy and will continue with this legal framework until the legal regulations are completed. Although these services are provided within legal framework abroad, that there is no legal regulation in our country does not necessarily mean that this profession does not exist. Based on the principle “there is no tolerance for a gap in life”, the supply and demand equilibrium established itself.
