Who will watch the detectives

It's not paranoia if they really are out to get you.John Murphy looks to see if anyone is sitting in a car outside his house before he leaves. He searches his car and office for recording and tracking devices.These are not paranoid delusions, he says. Murphy has experience of being watched 24 7 by private investigators. He says two investigators followed and secretly recorded him: one hired by a disgruntled customer who was taking him to the Motor Vehicle Disputes Tribunal.Murphy has difficulty proving he was followed: the Herald on Sunday has spoken to both PIs, who deny spying on him, though one confirms Hermes So Kelly Bag fake he was twice hired to serve papers on Murphy."You'd never know," Murphy insists. "That's the way it works. I had one private investigator come in and serve papers and intimidate me. I found bugs in my house. You wouldn't mind if it was the police who were gathering information about you."Murphy is an Auckland car dealer who has been the subject of a TVNZ Fair Go story on complaints by people who had bought cars from Murphy's Paris Motors in Greenlane. The programme alleged he bullied and threatened violence to customers and had 15 complaints brought against him to the tribunal. The tribunal found against him in four of nine cases publicly available.So, aren't the private investigators serving the public interest in exposing someone like him?Murphy says no. He says there is a broader principle at stake: every New Zealander's right to privacy, to not be spied upon by a de facto police force that is not subject to the same standards as real police. An independent government body investigates any complaints. However, critics such as the Green Party believe the system is open to abuse because the bar is so low for entry.Some of the techniques private investigators use include putting tracking devices on cars, following people and secretly recording them. The Privacy Commission is concerned about their use of high tech radio frequency identification (RFID) skimming and computer spyware."It is stalking," says Murphy. "The New Zealand private investigators are mostly ex police who forget that they are no longer sworn. New Zealand has its own private police force. They look like policemen, they talk like policemen, but they're not policemen."From Sherlock Holmes to Remington Steele to, er, Roger Rabbit, Hollywood has the kelly bag hermes Knockoff made private eyes look glamorous, or at least intriguing. They never show the private eye peeing in a bottle in the back of a surveillance van on a 10 hour stakeout.Private investigator Andrew McQuilter says the reality can be far from the glamour to which wannabe private investigators aspire. Indeed, National College of Security manager Evaine McKendrick says she was bombarded with negative feedback from graduates of her private investigation course when they sought jobs.Most private investigators are ex police, as it's nearly impossible to get experience unless you have been in the force, but anyone without hermes kelly handbags copy a conviction can be licensed and set up in business.Despite having a certificate in investigation skills, her students couldn't get jobs with private investigation firms."It just wasn't working," she says. "Companies wanted people with five years' or sometimes seven years' experience. We didn't feel like we were offering a useful course so we decided to close the doors."McQuilter says, "You need a lot of patience to do surveillance. But I'm one of these people who can sit and stare for 10 hours and not get bored. Then, once the person comes out, it's all on and what you've been thinking about for the past 10 hours is all gone."It can get really hot. If you are stuck in the van during the summer it can get so hot I end up sitting there in my shorts and singlet. I have to take all my food with me and a bottle to go to the toilet."He uses the van to monitor people who are actively evading companies they owe money to, people who are dealing in stolen property or other illegal activity.The van has three cameras linked to a hard drive and a screen. It can be left at the side of the road empty with cameras rolling, or a private investigator can sit in the van during a stake out."It looks like any work van. Just this week I had to serve papers on someone who owed $76,000. He knew people were after him so we couldn't use a car; it would have been too obvious. I parked the van outside his house with the orange light on the roof and wore a hard hat and a high vis. He walked right up to me and asked me what I was doing and I handed the papers to him."The van has been useful uncovering illegal dumping. It was a company that had been paid to safely dispose of hazardous waste by a bigger company."The bigger company had heard they were just taking the money and dumping the waste to landfill. So I got the van and drove straight into the dump behind them. I was able to film them and it was the evidence the company needed," he says.Andrew, 24, was accepted into police college when he finished school in 2005. However, he decided to work for his father's investigation company to gain experience. Four years later, he still hasn't got around to joining the force. "I'm having fun," he says.Andrew's father, Ron McQuilter, became a private investigator in his native Scotland after becoming frustrated with the path his police career was taking."I always Hermes Mini Kelly faux wanted to be a detective but they had me lined up to be a traffic cop. I didn't want to be a traffic cop so, when a friend of mine suggested I join him as a private detective, I said, 'Yeah, why not'."
