Scotland Yard's Use Of Private Detectives

Post by Karen on Fri 26 Mar 2010 - 19:03

Detective Work Contracted Out.

Touching the public side of the question, there is also another important matter: That is, the apportioning of the huge amount of private detective work which is filtered through the Yard. This is given out to retired officers, who in turn employ private inquiry agents to do it, paying them at an arranged rate. All the work has to be paid for heavily, the Yard extracting a huge toll, which goes into the pockets of higher officials as a charge for the introduction. The man who really does the work is paid at a fair rate in some instances, but as low as 5s. a day has been offered and accepted by at least one retired official. A guinea per day and expenses is the usual charge to the person requiring such services. Many hundreds of pounds go through the Yard annually in this direction, and some real supervision ought certainly to prevail.

I have been researching these private inquiry agents, mentioned in several newspaper articles and have come up with a list of agents from the late 1880's to the early 1900's:
