About Us
Meaning
In Ancient Greek mythology, Argus Panoptes was employed as a watchman, entrusted to protect Hera, the wife of Zeus. A giant with one hundred eyes, Panoptes was effective in this role as he could constantly watch over and protect the Greek goddess. Even in rest, Panoptes, with his ‘all-seeing eye’, was able to keep a number of eyes open to ensure that his watch was never interrupted.
Our Brand
The ability to see more than others enabled Panoptes to excel in his role as protector. At Panoptes Investigation Limited, we want to emulate this by making the ‘all-seeing eye’ our brand identity, to act as a constant reminder that we should always use the power of sight to watch over and protect those who require our assistance.
Vision
To develop a national network of highly experienced ‘eyes’ who can anticipate, manage and mitigate risks on behalf of individual and corporate clients who wish to protect themselves and their brand identity from potential harm.
Mission
To provide a highly specialised ‘all-seeing’ private investigation and risk management service, specialising in Legal Defence work, counter-eavesdropping and protective services, to clients who entrust us with their safety and corporate reputation.
Who we are
Panoptes Investigation Limited is the brainchild of a former Police Detective who wanted to use his vast experience and network of contacts to assist and protect others. As a result of a long and decorated career specialising in covert policing and surveillance and Serious and Organised crime, Panoptes has access to a large network of former high ranking Senior Investigating Officers (SIOs) and Royal Marines who can be deployed nationally to assist and support our clients. Due to the covert nature of our work, we seek to protect the identities of our operatives, as we are more effective when people do not know we are watching.
Who we work for
Panoptes provides services to both individual and corporate clients, including VIPs, dignitaries, legal firms and large corporations, who trust us to protect them, their families, their properties and their businesses from harm. Due to the sensitive nature of our work, we understand the need for discretion so client confidentiality is paramount. We build strong working relationships with our clients to ensure that or solutions are tailored to their specific demands and needs.
