What we offer…



conducting surveillance in the modern era is a specialized skill that needs constant fine tuning. Media both social and other has had the effect of making people aware of their surroundings. Stalkers, peeping toms, AVO violators, drug dealers, work place theft and insurance fraud all require unique skills by investigators in order to remain incognito. At Centauri, we have encountered them all and kept them under close surveillance using techniques and technology acquired through years of experience.



gathering facts in an investigation takes more than boldly fronting up and asking a number of obvious questions. Fact finding and evidence gathering takes subtle finesse. Being able to follow a line of questioning that leads to the correct conclusion is an art form few investigators have acquired. A good investigator also must be able to read the person being interviewed and their surroundings. Observation is a skill not limited to surveillance alone. It also forms a major portion of the factual investigator’s arsenal. Our investigators have all these abilities and more and produce work to an industry leading standard.
