Private eyes want intervention order database access
Private detectives are being duped by clients into hunting for victims of domestic abuse who have been protected by court orders.
Offenders are being led by private investigators to former partners who are in hiding, prompting calls from Police Association secretary Greg Davies to allow investigators licenced by Victoria Police to gain access to IVO information.
Wayne Edwards from Harjan Investigators told 3AW Breakfast that while investigators do take precautions, having access to an IVO register would be beneficial.
"I'd like to actually go to my local police station, present my licence and say I'm doing a possible investigation on someone, is there any chance... can I check up to see if there are any active orders in place?” he said.
Mr Edwards said he asked clients a range to questions to assist any identifying any issues between them and the person they seek.
”"I'm pretty passionate because I've got a duty of care, not only for the client, but also for the person that I'm actually probably putting under investigation,” he said.
"What I need to go then is ask them a series of questions and try to identify anything that seems unusual or (any) red flags that's going to identify a possible problem that may exist."

My ex got a DVO against me for a txt message when I found out she was getting my children involved in a religious cult. There was no violence but she lied in court and said there was. Had she run off with our children what avenue's am I left with to find her ??? Most people mistakenly believe that these order's are to protect people from violence, unfortunatly they can also be used to control a person by making false alegations.John F Wednesday 24 October, 2012 - 10:40 AM
