Duty of Discretion

Private detectives are subject to the duty of discretion which guarantees total confidentiality of the information given to the private investigator by his client as well as that uncovered during the course of his investigations.

There is, however, a duty of information to which the private detective is subject, which implies that the private detective must provide information to the Minister of the Interior (Home Office), the Minister of Justice or the judicial authorities if so requested. When the request for information meets certain conditions, the detective is obliged to respond to it without delay.

Furthermore, where there is evidence of criminal activity, the detective is obliged to report certain facts immediately to the relevant legal authorities.

This special duty of information applies in two specific cases:

  • If the detective is instructed by his client to investigate or carry out research into offenses or criminal activity.
  • If, during the course of his research, the detective discovers evidence of criminal activity or offenses even if they are not the target of the investigation.


Founded in 2003, the BruCIS agency has accumulated almost 15 years of experience as well as considerable know-how and is recognised by many corporate executives and legal professionals. The human dimension of our business is at the heart of our relationships both within our own team and also with our clients and partners, because we believe it is fundamental to a relationship of mutual trust and successful collaboration.


Each application must be legitimate and will be analysed with the utmost care to allow us to advise our clients in their best interests, to define the means to be used and the modus operandi best suited to the situation. Our clients are given regular progress reports throughout the investigations. At the end of the assignment, we prepare and submit a precisely detailed investigation report, supplemented if necessary by photographs / videos and / or supporting documents.


All the elements of our investigation report aim to establish the truth and defend the interests of our clients. The investigation report and its supporting documents may, if necessary, be used in a court of law. Our private detectives and partners meet the same regulatory and ethical requirements. They exercise the utmost discretion and are subject to the strict respect of the duty of confidentiality.
