  About Derby Associates Limited
Security Consultants and Commercial Investigators established in 1987 and re-branded in 1993.

Derby Associates Limited is an Investigation Consultancy managed and staffed by former Scotland Yard detective Officers, all of whom have an exemplary police background and a wealth of knowledge and experience, utilised to the benefit of their clients. In addition to the principal officers of the company and it's employees, it benefits from a nucleus of select contract staff of equal status and professional calibre.

The company is conveniently located to the City of London, and equidistant between London's two major International Airports, Gatwick and Heathrow. During the years of trading the company's client base became dispersed throughout the United Kingdom and overseas and it's continued expansion bears testament to the quality of service the company provides in this highly competitive field.

This comprehensive Security and Investigation Portfolio has been designed to give the corporate and individual client the assurance of a quality service across a broad spectrum of security related disciplines including a Fraud Investigation service, Fraud Risk Management Programme, Insurance Claims Investigation Service and a Legal / Litigation support service.

Over the last decade, Press and media coverage of crime and fraud related events, coupled with our own perception of everyday life, makes us increasingly conscious of the need for enhanced awareness and vigilance in our personal and professional lives. The encroachment and intrusion into personal lives in the form of ‘identity fraud’ is particularly alarming, and therefore at this time when the traditional roles and responsibilities of the police are becoming more narrowly defined and public sector resources are finite, the private sector, and in particular Derby Associates Limited is available to respond. We owe it to ourselves to protect our businesses, our families, and our possessions. Let Derby Associates Limited help to plan the security of your future.
