A SECURITY firm is extending its private detective work with the addition of two former police chiefs to "expose infidelity" across the area.

Ex-deputy chief constable Garry Sutherland and Northern Constabulary’s former head of operations Bruce Duncan have become directors at Castle Investigations, linked to The Castle Group which provides services including alarm response call-outs and employee vetting at its Dalcross Industrial Estate base.

Managing director Jim Ferguson says it is responding to a rapidly changing society.

"There is growing evidence of an increase in infidelity," he said.

"We only have to glance at some of our most recent headlines to see the blurring of moral boundaries.

"A few weeks ago a lot of attention was given to a website that advertised discreet extra marital affairs.

"Anyone who has been betrayed by a partner will fully understand the destruction and devastation that can result from this. The consequences can be life-long, particularly if there are young children involved."

He said 95 per cent of the time if someone thinks their other half is straying they are usually right.

"The Castle Group is not here to make moral judgements, but we firmly believe that everyone has a right to peace of mind and to know if their health is being put at risk," Mr Ferguson added.

"If a partner is being unfaithful then there are all kinds of sexual health concerns, as well as the emotional impact.

"We take pride in doing our job thoroughly and discreetly, and with our high tech tracking and surveillance equipment we can guarantee results.

"Deciding to hire a private detective to trail your loved one is not a decision to be taken lightly since what we find can be difficult to handle; having a niggling suspicion is not the same as being faced with hard evidence.

"We’ve exposed many people in highly respected professions, and people approaching 80 years old who have been cheating on a partner. It seems that there is no set type of person who is unfaithful, although some of the reasons cited involve the current economic climate."
