Vic Covert Investigations is a highly efficient and very professional group of investigators. I have engaged a number of private detectives in the past 3 years before engaging Jesse S. I have wasted a large amount of money on them without receiving any positive results. A couple of them were dishonest too. On one occasion I approached VCI only an hour before I needed their service and the team was immediately ready for the action. I would recommend VCI to anyone who needs private investigation.

Rina Singh

Given that this was the first time I’d approached a PI, Jesse S was very straight forward and understood what I had to achieve. I found this very comforting knowing I was leaving a very serious issue to a professional that did not waste my time. His experienced advice along the way was useful in understanding that we had captured enough data to get both myself and my company a great result. I would definitely recommend VICCOVERT and Jesse S to anyone requiring this type of service.

Business Owner

I engaged Vic Covert Investigations to locate an old friend from High school that I hadn’t seen for 25 years. With minimal information, they were able to locate and provide contact details very promptly and with excellent detail. I am highly satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking to engage a private investigator.

Jason R

Jesse has become a friend of mine after meeting many years ago now and he’s been a great help in continuing to keep my business profitable during a period in which staff theft & bad business decisions became an issue. He helped sort out my CCTV network and even went undercover for me which has ended up being invaluable. Adding to this he has kept in touch to ensure that the issue was sorted. I’m continually impressed with his manner and efficiency.

General Manager
Qld Covert Investigations

Vic Covert Investigations was able to identify staff theft within the business outside of my internal security infrastructure. This information was in turn used to terminate the employment of the individuals involved allowing me to replace them with efficient and responsible staff members and management.
